Did you know, Nushrat Bharucha had auditioned for Student Of The Year?
Nushrat's performance in Pyaar Ka Punchnama became her calling card, so much so that people started recognising her by her character in that film rather than her real name.
"Initially, I was taking the tag of 'Panchnama girl' sportingly but then I realised that people called me by that name more than my real name!" she told mid-day recently.
Did you know that Nushrat Bharucha had dreamt of debuting in films with Karan Johar's 2012 movie, Student Of The Year?
Bharucha had said in 2018, "I remember auditioning for Student Of The Year in front of Karan Johar. It was back then that I performed in front of him."
Nushrat Bharucha was one of the shortlisted actresses for the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire along with Freida Pinto.
But she was not finalised because of her looks. Director Danny Boyle's team cited reasons that Nushrat does not fit the character.
Nushrat Bharucha has a simple yet magical mantra to get a mental and physical boost.
She believes a good game of badminton is all it takes to keep her energised and in good physical shape. She has been playing the sport since her early childhood days with her parents and till date, no matter how hectic her schedule is, she ensures to devote at least an hour every day for her favourite sport.
