Nushrratt Bharuccha auditioned for Latika’s role in Slumdog Millionaire
Did you know that Nushrratt Bharuccha, the star of Pyaar Ka Punchnama, auditioned for the role of Latika in Danny Boyle’s critically acclaimed film, Slumdog Millionaire? Although her acting skills were impressive, she was turned down because she looked too pretty for the part. The role was eventually given to Freida Pinto.
The reason behind Nushrratt’s rejection
According to an interview with a news portal last year, the makers of Slumdog Millionaire told Nushrratt that she looked too beautiful to be from a slum. While the actress didn’t know whether to take it as a compliment or rejection, it’s clear that her casting in the film was not meant to be.
A fond memory with Danny Boyle
Despite missing out on the role of Latika, Nushrratt was able to work with director Danny Boyle during an early reading of the script. Nushrratt fondly recalled the experience, saying that Boyle gave her the script and told her to go home and read it before giving her feedback. While she may not have made the final cut, it’s clear that Nushrratt left a lasting impression on the filmmaker.
Nushrratt’s recent projects
Since her audition for Slumdog Millionaire, Nushrratt has gone on to find success in Bollywood. Her most recent film was Chatrapathi, and she will be seen in Chhorii 2 next.
In conclusion, while Nushrratt may not have landed the role of Latika in Slumdog Millionaire, her talent and dedication to her craft have helped her become a successful actress in the Indian film industry.
