Nushrat Bharucha is an Indian actress. She was born on May 17, 1985 in a Dawoodi Bohra family to Tanvir Bharucha and his wife Tasneem Bharucha in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Nushrat is the only child of her parents and she does not have any siblings.
She completed her schooling from Lilavatibai Podar High School in Mumbai and later graduated from Jai Hind College in Mumbai.
During her college days as a student of Jai Hind college, Nushrat went to a talent management firm to work there as a scout but she was offered a role in the television show Kittie Party (2002). After working for a year, she quit the show after one year because of long working hours and ill-treatment of newcomers.
Although she made her film debut in Jai Santoshi Maa (2006) but came to limelight after tasting success in Luv Ranjan's Pyaar Ka Punchnama (2011) opposite Kartik Aaryan. After that she worked in many hit movies like Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015), Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018) and Dream Girl (2019).
In 2020, she changed the spelling of her name to Nushrratt Bharuccha due to numerological reasons.
Nushrat was shortlisted to play the female lead in Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire (2008) but was rejected because makers thought that she was not looking like a girl coming from a slum area.
Earlier she was a hardcore non-vegetarian but she turned vegan during the shooting of the movie Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018). Nushrat said:
"I belong to a Bohri Muslim family, and for us, food is our biggest celebration. We are used to elaborating five to six-course meals. So, to give up on our signature dishes, which can only be made with chicken/mutton, was like living someone else’s life suddenly! This wasn’t only a dietary change, but a lifestyle change and a drastic one at that. Initially, it was really tough to deal with the cravings. The decision tested my willpower and I am happy that I succeeded."
Bharucha in an interview revealed that acting is not considered as a good profession in her community, so during her initial days in the industry, she told to her extended family that acting was just a summer job for her.
Zainul is not Nushrat's brother. On January 18, 2013, Nushrat Bharucha mentioned her cousin Hafeez Shahiwala as Hafluuu on twitter. Then a person named Zainul came and started laughing. Nushrat warned him and told that only she can call Hafeez as Hafluuu. So people thought that Zainul is her brother & his full name is Zainul Bharucha. 10
She will be next seen in "Janhit Mein Jaari" opposite Anud Singh Dhaka, "Hurdang" opposite Sunny Kaushal, "Ram Setu" opposite Akshay Kumar & "Selfiee" with Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi.
