Nushrratt Bharuccha is all geared up for her next release, Ajeeb Daastaans, where she will be donning upon a completely different character for the first time in her filmography chart.  To completely get into the skin of her character of 'Meenal' from the film, Nushrratt took inspiration from her own househelp, to help her form a better understanding of her character. 

Speaking about her character, Nushrratt revealed, "While I was thinking about how to get into the character of Meenal, I started observing my own house-help to understand her mannerisms and characteristics. She was a great reference point for me and unknowingly, she helped me tremendously to get a deeper understanding of my character in Ajeeb Daastaans."

She further added, "Meenal's story is that of an ordinary girl who is struggling to make ends meet, and provide for the best for herself and her sister. I could feel a similarity in Meenal's life and my househelp, who too worked hard to provide for her son, with all the opportunities she can. I absolutely adore her because of her spirit of fighting hard, with a sweet smile on her face always."

"For 3-4 hours that she would come, she would make all of us at home happy and ‘feel at home’ with her fun banter. And, that is what I wanted my character to also portray in the film," said Nushrratt. 

From the glimpses of the trailer, Nushrratt as Meenal struggles hard to make ends meet, and provide the best for her family. Apart from Ajeeb Daastaans, she has Hurdang, Chorii, Janhit Mein Jaari and Ram Setu in the pipeline.
