Nobody expects actresses to do something smart: Nushrat

Tuesday, May 03, 2016

She may have starred in several comedy films, but Nushrat Bharucha feels the genre usually belongs to heroes with very little scope for the actresses

Nushrat, best known for starring in the popular "Pyaar Ka Punchnama" franchise, says actresses are often laughed at as they are not expected to do something smart. "Doing a comedy is a bit different for girls. Nobody expects girls to give one liners in a film. Usually people laugh at her (the character). The heroes, on the other hand, are going to be laughed with. There is a difference.''

The actress was recently awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation award for her comic role in "Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2". Giving an example of Chandler and Rachel, popular characters from the hit sitcom "Friends", the 30 year old actress says, "A character like Chandler Bing, who is smart, funny and extremely charming, exists, while at the same time there is a Rachel who some people think is just a blonde who cannot do anything. I had to work hard on my character so as not to make it become a caricature, not just limit her as the butt of jokes but make her more human.''

Nushrat feels now is the best time for film-makers in Bollywood to come up with a genuine movie which explores female bonding. "I really believe now is the time we should make a true chick flick. That's something we have not explored yet. It should be done realistically, may be about four girls and the bond they share. It should be interesting.''
