Nushrat Bharucha‘s Bollywood journey has been a bumpy ride. From being a face in the crowd to having the spotlight on her, the actress has definitely come a long way. Her most recent release, Dream Girl, opposite Ayushmann Khurrana has been loved by the masses and critics. But recently, she opened up about the days after her film, Akaash Vani had flopped.

In a recent interaction with the media, Nushrat shared that she was at home for almost two years and she didn’t even watch films during that time.

Nushrat said:

After Pyaar Ka Punchnama, I was not offered any interesting films. I did Akaash Vani and then Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2. After Akaash Vani, honestly, no films came my way because it flopped. I was at home for two years and in severe depression. And I did not leave my house. I would not even watch movies. I was stunned, how could my film flop? It took a huge toll on me. Then Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 came along and it did really well. In between, I did a few bad films and they flopped as well.

She added:

Actually, my journey has been from dancing in the background to having the spotlight on me. In the film, Kal Kissne Dekha, Riteish Deshmukh had done a song in which I was cheering for him in the crowd. Today, I am doing a song with him, standing next to him. That has been my journey.

What a journey this has been.

Nushrat will next be seen in Turram Khan which also stars Rajkummar Rao and Hurdang opposite Sunny Kaushal.
