Nushrratt Bharuccha talks conning her parents for years to escape pressure of getting married


Nushrratt Bharuccha got candid during a recent interview and talked about how soon after she began her acting career, her family wanted her to get married. Revealed that in her community, everyone gets married at a young age, Nushrratt talked about ‘years of conning’ her parents. She said that she simultaneously met potential matches, so her family could not complain about her being single.

“I conned them. It was years of conning. It was tough because I come from a Bohri Muslim family and in Bohri Muslim families, girls are married off at a very young age. I don’t understand why but it’s just a cultural thing. Even boys get married really early. So, after I did 1-2 films, I had the pressure that now get married. So, I conned my parents saying that only one more film I’ll finish and then I’ll get married,” Nushrratt quoted.

“And this kept going on. But while I was doing that, I was meeting the boys for rishtas also, so that there was no conflict in the house where I could tell them that I’m going to see the boy na, if I like the boy, I’ll get married but it just never happened,” she shared.

Chhalaang actress is currently gearing up for the release of her upcoming ‘Chhorii’. Nushrratt plays a pregnant woman in the horror film. Bharuccha earlier talked about wearing the pregnant bodysuit at all times, including while sleeping and going to the bathroom, 25 days before the shoot began so that she could look convincing in the role.

Directed by Vishal Furia, Chhorii will be released on Amazon Prime Video on November 26.
