In an exclusive interview with PeepingMoon, Nushrratt Bharuccha got candid about the risk of playing a ‘maid’ in Ajeeb Daastaans’ short ‘Khilauna’, shedding her ‘glamorous girl’ image, losing an international project for being ‘too pretty’ and shooting for Akshay Kumar’s ‘Ram Setu’!
Talking about her role, Nushrratt said, "Have never tried to break out of the ‘glamorous girl’ image. Did not do ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’ to shed that image. I have never tried to break out from something or fit into something. I started my journey from LSD in which I played a non-glamorous role."
Raj Mehta’s Khilauna is an unexpected tale of the scary class distinction in India. The short film is based on how a house help Minal (Nushrratt Bharuccha) manages to keep her seven-year-old sister Bini (Inayat Verma) happy despite living a poor life in the world of riches. Minal along with her partner Sushil (Abhishek Banerjee) dreams of smashing societal differences between the rich and the poor but faces life-threatening consequences because of her younger sister Bini.
