Nushrrat said: “For the past year or so I’ve had one problem or another. I had a bout of vertigo, then I had a back injury. Then I sprained my ankle and then I broke my toe.” Shilpa then interrupted her and asked her to explain how she had cracked her toe. The star of Janhit Mein Jaari then said she was dancing on a table for her birthday party when she broke her toe.
Nushrratt went on to say: “Because of this illness, one fall after another, it became very difficult to keep up with work. So I would be on set, two ads would push me into the frame. I would say my dialogues and then fall out of the frames and the ads would hold me again. But I had those obligations, so I had to work.”
She added that during the filming of Dil Chori Saada for Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, she had buckets full of warm water and salt on set to soothe her feet. Her feet were swollen because she was wearing uncomfortable heels to hide her short height, she said.
Nushrratt has worked in movies such as Pyaar Ka Punchnama movies, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, Dream Girl and Ajeeb Daataans. Most recently seen in Janhit Mein Jaari, Nushrratt has lined up Akshay Kumar starrer Ram Setu next. She also has the second episode of her horror film, Chhorrii. She played the title role in the Amazon original.
Nushrratt will also be seen in Selfiee, in which she will share the screen space with Kumar, as well as actors Emraan Hashmi and Diana Penty. Speaking of her upcoming films, Nushrratt recently told PTI: “Chorri 2 was an obvious decision after we received the audience feedback, which has been positive. In fact, it hadn’t been a month since its release on Amazon that the team announced a part two they were kicked about the reception it got Ram Setu is one of the first movies I made with Akshay sir It was such unbelievable news when I wrapped it I remember that I told my mother that I am making a movie with Akshay, sir.”
