‘Ajeeb Dastaans’ Helped Break Stereotypes, Says Nushrratt Bharuccha

Nushrratt says this is very different from her earlier roles

Nushrratt said: “We shot the film just for eight days but being extremely honest, I have not had so much fun shooting any other film that I’ve worked on. Raj is a genius but is also hilarious, funny, and too cool. He is genuinely a really passionate filmmaker, and he truly enjoys the process of directing a film and being on a set.”

She added: “While shooting for a film, there are always those great shots you get or you try to get, but it’s also about enjoying the process — and that’s where this experience stands out for me. Adding to the fun was Inayat, my partner in crime. I loved every bit of her company and we have had a great camaraderie in real life too. We are still in touch to date and catch up often. I really hope to work with Raj, and of course, I nayat again in the near future.”
