Dream Girl’s Nushrat Bharucha Talks About What Kept Her Going Despite Depression
Nushrat Bharucha revealed that it was her friends and family, and her faith that got her through tough times
Bollywood actress Nushrat Bharucha made her film debut in 2006, but it was only in 2011 with Luv Ranjan’s Pyaar Ka Punchnama, that she started getting more fame. Throughout her 10-year long career, Nushrat went on to work in numerous one. In her latest film, Dream Girl, she stars next to Ayushmann Khurrana - and the film has already been crunching big numbers at the box office. Currently garnering huge praises for her performance in Dream Girl, Nushrat also opened up on suffering from depression, the importance of family support in such times and what kept her going.
In a recent interview, the actress shared, “I think the people around me helped a lot - friends and family, someone who can silently exist with you in your silence. There was just a voice in me that told me that I will get through this. If that voice had not been there, it would have been a serious problem. I believed that things will get better the next day. Keeping up with that faith, I would get through the day.” Nushrat added that she was devastated when, in the past, her films failed. “After Akashvaani, I was so depressed that I did not take my whole payment for the film because I told the producers that I am distraught that they lost their money because of me.”
In an earlier interview, Nushrat revealed that she was depressed for about a year and a half and did not know what to do. “But I got Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 and somehow, I was cast again. We were shooting, and I had no idea what would happen. That movie did well and I felt I was coming back to normalcy.” She explained that she worked on a few things in between that didn’t work out but her consistency to do something got her through. “If I gave up early, I wouldn't be here. You have to believe in your dreams. I had faith and belief that I would make it,” concluded Nushrat.
