Breaking an image toughest fight for actors: Nushrat
New Delhi: Actor Nushrat Bharucha says breaking an image is one of the biggest challenges for an actor.
Nushrat rose to fame by playing the girl-next-door characters in Pyaar Ka Punchnama films and Sweety in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
Does she want to break that image?
"Breaking an image actually is one of the toughest fights an actor can fight. Also, it becomes one of the most challenging things for me," Nushrat said.
"For me, it sort of becomes one of the most challenging reasons to approach a film or to get to a film. It excites me more because I feel like 'Yeah, this (role) people have not seen me do and they will really be able to see me in a different light'," she added.
Nushrat will next be seen in Hurdang, a love story set in the 1990s, a time when the youth fought for their rights and spent a lot of time occupied with self-realisation.
"I hope with my next few films I am able to give them something that they wouldn't have imagined me doing," she said, adding that her character in the film is "gritty" and "to-the-face".
Bharucha debuted in Hindi cinema in 2006 with the film Jai Santoshi Maa. She then starred alongside Jackky Bhagnani in the science fiction romantic drama Kal Kissne Dekha (2009) which was a commercial failure. The following year, she was paired with Rajkummar Rao and Anshuman Jha in Dibakar Banerjee's experimental anthology drama Love Sex Aur Dhokha.
