The rare quality that very few actresses posses in the tinsel town is the art of delivering a comic performance. In Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, Nushrat Bharucha threw the audience into fits of laughter. Her nuanced performance as the nagging girlfriend we all remember as Chicku landed her a few awards, most notable of them was the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Award for the Best Actor in a Comic Role, where she joins other stalwarts this year like Manoj Bajpayee and Priyanka Chopra.
She is extremely ecstatic with the honor but that’s not all that’s keeping her smile going. Nushrat will now be seen in an ad directed by Dibakar Bannerji, who had first directed Nushrat in his film Love, Sex Aur Dhokha, where she essayed the role of a virginal, repressed north indian girl, a victim of honor killing.
Well, our very own Mumbai girl seems to be covering all the colors of a rainbow with panache. We hope to keep seeing her in more and she can keep us entertained with her infectious combination of beauty and acting talent.
