Nushrratt Bharuccha: We still have ‘what will look good on the poster’ attitude, and not open to newer casting in Bollywood


Nushrratt Bharuccha feels that the inflow of OTT platforms in India goes to lead to a significant shift. And it’s stunning for a mainstream movie actor to admit that readily, contemplating the quantity sport was all that mattered till just a few months in the past.

“I genuinely feel OTTs will change, for the better, the Indian audiences and the way they viewed films. The content that is there too, because now they will actually like the film for the film, and not for the box office success of it,” she says.

The 35-year-old, who starred just lately in Chhalaang reverse Rajkummar Rao, which launched straight on an OTT platform. “There will not be the extra influence of ‘arre itne paise kamaaye toh film achhi hogi’. Zaroori nahi hai! Judgement for that will get real, and we will have a stronger fan following which is more true to our art, our sensibilities. I am very glad,” she provides. 

But whilst modifications like this happen, there are some issues, which Bharuccha still is but to see change, and one in every of them is individuals not keen to take dangers with newer actors.

She confesses that not everybody will agree together with her or have a take on this, “The negative part, today personally is we still are very limited close minded in our sight of casting. I feel we are not open to newer, different casting. We feel like casting the same people in similar kind of roles, in similar kind of films. I feel they are not trusting actors as much as they should, or they are not opening up their minds to see ‘aisa role iss ladke ya ladki ko karte nahi dekha hai’.”

A refreshing casting is what the actor seeks, as all actors in accordance to her are gifted and can carry one thing new to characters. But what occurs as an alternative is that this, “We still want to go with ‘poster pe kya achha lagega’ attitude, which I think should change.”

Ask her the place is she coming from when she says this, and Bharuccha confesses that it’s her personal instance. “They want to see me in similar romantic comedies. I have worked now in some and have a certain space of mine, but I want to do other things too. Why don’t you trust me that it will become a success? Basically that. There are films, I go out and try and want to be a part of. The answer that I get back is ‘maybe for a romantic comedy’. But I am like ‘why not this?’ Before my romantic comedies did well, people didn’t want to cast me in that!,” she says.
