Nushrat Bharucha, who was seen in films like Love Sex Aur Dhoka (LSD) and Pyaar Ka Punchnama, will be essaying the role of a spirited, small town girl in her next, Akaash Vaani. The film is a love story that evolves over a span of time between the two protagonist Akaash and Vaani.
The actor has been very selective about the kind of roles she had been doing in her films. She explains, "After LSD, I was getting offers to do cameos in films. I was not interested in them because if I took them up, then I'll never be able to play central characters. I know, I have a petite body structure but that should not prove an obstacle in getting a good role. At the onset of my career, I was clear that I would only do lead roles. If I do not get good roles in Bollywood, then I would rather work on television."
Nushrat is optimistic that her film Akaash Vani will be appreciated by the audience and the industry. "I hope film-makers approach me with good roles after watching my performance in the film," says the actor.
Akaash Vani, a rom-com, directed by Luv Ranjan of Pyaar Ka Punchnama fame and produced by Abhishek Pathak, releases on January 25.
