Speaking about her meet with ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ producer Vikram Malhotra, Nushrratt said, “He was my producer on LSD when Balaji was doing it. Then he was my producer on ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama’ and after that, so he’s known me for a while.”
Revealing deets about one day when Bharuccha stepped to Malhotra’s office with no agenda, and met producer Jack, she added, “That day when I went to office, he asked me to step in and meet the producer Jack. I had no clue who Jack was, Vikram just said he’s somebody tying up with him for a film. The first thing Jack asked me was my thoughts on Indian society and I was like, ‘oh!’ We further discussed things that I felt we need to improve, whether it’s education or population control, electricity or water supply or just basic things that people need to get on an everyday basis. So, this is how chatted about India for like an hour…”.
Later the actress received a call back from Vikram post and found about ‘Chhorri’ that was in talks, and realised Jack found her perfect for the lead role. “I think I was at the right place at the right time, and it was just a coincidence that Jack sat down in front of me before his flight and chatted with me. And just like that I was on for the film. Simple. It was just one conversation” she signed off.
Directed by Vishal Furia, ‘Chhorii’ revolves around Sakshi, played by Bharuccha, who experiences events involving paranormal activity in a secluded village. It is a remake of Furia’s acclaimed 2017 Marathi film ‘Lapachhapi‘.
