Like doing the unexpected: Nushrat Bharucha

“I have played the girl-next-door in most of my films but those have also been like a set-up. They seem like a girl next door in “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” and “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety”, but they turned around to become girls who stab you in the back or do the ‘punchnama’. So, eventually, there is some spice to my character every time. I like doing things that are unexpected,” Nushrat told IANS.

The actress, who ventured into Bollywood in 2010 with a role in “Love Sex Aur Dhokha”, says she would lose interest in a role if it was predictable.

“I like picking something (about) which I feel like (it) is, ‘woah’,” she added.

The 34-year-old actress, whose characters Chiku in “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” and Sweety in “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety” became popular, is gearing up for her next release, “Hurdang”.

“Hurdang” is being touted as a love story set in the 1990s, a time when the youth fought for their rights and spent a lot of time over self-realisation.

“In ‘Hurdang’ she (Nushrat’s character) is gritty and to-the-face. She is a rebel of sorts. What I like about her is that she is as real as it can get, and she has the guts to be who she is in a world where people won’t let her be that way. That’s what I like about her,” she said.

“If a chapter is over, it is not necessarily to reopen those pages. Why not start a new chapter and build a new relation? I believe two people who were in a relationship can remain good friends. There is nothing wrong with that,” said the “Kasautii Zindagii Kay” actress, adding that “moving on” is important in life.

“I am not in my twenties, so I do think a little differently now. I believe in mature living and don’t like to hold grudges. Sometimes you have to move on to find happiness in life. That’s what I did,” she added.

The makers of the show are yet to unveil the identity of Urvashi’s partner, and the actress is yet to confirm the news, but reports are rife that her partner in the Star Plus show is Anuj.

“I am participating in the show with my ex but it does not mean that I am giving a second chance to the relationship. One has to understand that I come from a different school of thought.” is all that Urvashi would tell IANS, about the identity of her partner. (IANS)
