Pyaar Ka Punchnama girl Franchise

Pyaar Ka Punchnama was a surprise box office hit. Without any big star cast, the film went on to become one of the most successful films in 2011. The actress was seen opposite Kartik Aaryan essaying the role of an obsessive girlfriend. She literally got in the skin of the character and her performance was loved by the audience. Pyaar Ka Punchanama 2 also got success at the box office and again Nushrat was loved by the audience. 

Akaash Vani 

With first-rate performances by both Nushrat and Kartik, this is one love story you can’t afford to miss. The world of “Akaash Vani” is far removed from the bantering bawdy backchat of “Pyaar Ka Punchnama“. But that is the beauty of the second film. It tells you that director Luv Ranjan is not frozen in his initial world. The movie leaves an impact on the audience by touching some social stigmas that people are afraid of talking.


Nushrat played the character of Sweety who is a caring, sensitive and apparent ‘perfect’ partner for Titu played by Sunny Singh, However, Titu’s child friend Sonu ( Kartik Aaryan) is not very convinced with the apparent outlook. Nushrat and Kartik are seen at war to claim Sunny and the story revolves around this tussle. The Luv Ranjan directorial wen on to become a huge box office success garnering over Rs 100 crores at the box office.


Nushrat was seen in the character of a sweet and simple girl named Mahi as she featured opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in Raaj Shandilya’s Dream Girl. While her role has comparatively less screen time, she managed to leave an impact on the audiences’ mind. The film was a box office success


She played the character of an English teacher in a school in Haryana who was being wooed by two PT teachers- Rajkummar Rao and Zishan Ayub. This Hansal Mehta directorial was released on Amazon Prime due to the coronavirus pandemic and got a positive reaction from the audience.
