Nushrat Bharucha: Even the star children proved their worth to govern
Bollywood fans introduce themselves to the new star children every year and the conversation about nepotism seems to never end. Actress Nushrat Bharucha , a stranger who has made it great without having a filmy bloodline, however, defends the star child brigade saying even star child s have had to prove their worth with acting skills and commercial value to get to the top of the entertainment business.
"Even star child s have had to prove their worth to be at the top of the game. Star kids might get great launchpads, but all of them have proved their worth commerciality and creatively," Nushrat told a news agency. She will soon be seen in 'Dream girl' .
We are in the entertainment business where we have to make sure that we are highly qualified with our performance, or build a connection with the audience that can add commercial value to a movie. That's why, although I'm a stranger, I never felt victim, he added.
Over the past couple of years star child s such as Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter, Ananya Pandey, Meezan, Sharmin Sehgal, Pranutan and Abhimanyu Dassani being launched, and soon Karan Deol, son of Sunny Deol, will make his debut.
Nushrat cites examples of Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan to explain how these young actors, despite belonging to illustrious Bollywood clans, succeed in their own right after demonstrating their commercial and creative worth.
After his performance in «Pyaar Ka Punchnama» (2011) brought praise and popularity, was seen in movies like 'Akaash Vani', 'Darr @ The Mall', 'Meeruthiya Gangsters'.
None of these films worked at the box office. Then 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2' and «Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety» released, and they both worked for me In the middle, I received many offers of character roles, but I was sure I just wanted to play the female protagonist. Instead of blaming the situation on why people are not writing papers for me, I took the opportunity to demonstrate the fact that even if I have five scenes, I will nail them with my performance, Nushrat said.
She also believes that it is up to the artist to treat a character in a certain way.
Recalling her popular character Sweety Sharma in «Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety», Nushrat said, In the film, I had a dialogue that said, 'main heroine nahin, villain hoon'. But in the end the audience liked my character because through my performance I did not play it black. It was gray.
In her upcoming film 'Dream girl' , the actress plays the love interest of the male protagonist.
She continued, "I take up such challenges as an actress and make it real. It was a challenge for me to play a part in a film like 'Dream girl' because the central character in the film is of Lokesh played by Ayushmann. People will come to the theatre to watch his story. My challenge is, in the end, when they leave the theatre, they should go back with my performance also in mind, like the way people couldn't forget MC Sher in 'Gully Boy' although the film was about on Ranveer (Singh) and Alia (Bhatt)," she shared.
Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, 'Dream girl' also features Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz and Manjot Singh among others. The film is scheduled to release on September 13.
