Nushrratt Bharuccha is all geared up for her next release, a web anthology Ajeeb Daastaans, produced by Karan Johar. The actress will be donning a completely different character for the first time. Nushrratt can bee seen playing the character of 'Meenal' in the movie, who struggles hard to make ends meet, and provide the best for her family. To completely get into the skin of her character of Meenal from the film, Nushrratt took inspiration from her own househelp, to help her form a better understanding of her character.
Speaking about her character, Nushrratt reveals, "While I was thinking about how to get into the character of Meenal, I started observing my own house-help to understand her mannerisms and characteristics. She was a great reference point for me and unknowingly, she helped me tremendously to get a deeper understanding of my character in Ajeeb Daastaans."
She further adds, "Meenal's story is that of an ordinary girl who is struggling to make ends meet, and provide for the best for herself and her sister. I could feel a similarity in Meenal's life and my househelp, who too worked hard to provide for her son, with all the opportunities she can. I absolutely adore her because of her spirit of fighting hard, with a sweet smile on her face always.
"For 3-4 hours that she would come, she would make all of us at home happy and ‘feel at home’ with her fun banter. And, that is what I wanted my character to also portray in the film," reveals Nushrratt.
With Ajeeb Daastaans, Nushrratt has been breaking her own image as a performer, and is taking up more and more challenging roles. Ajeeb Daastaans releases on Netflix on April 16. The anthology also stars Shefali Shah, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Manav Kaul, Abhishek Banerjee, Konkona Sensharma, Jaideep Ahlawat and Aditi Rao Hydari.
