Nushrratt Bharuccha, one of the actors in Netflix’s upcoming anthology film ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’, said that it was her best experience on a film set to date.
“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 film maker, and he truly enjoys the process of directing a film and being on a set. 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 till date and catch up often. I really hope to work with Raj, and of course Inayat again in the near future. Also, this is very different from my earlier roles, so breaking out of the stereotypes added to the experience.”
Bharuccha plays a maid in the film, a completely different character compared to the ones she has played before in films like Pyaar Ka Punchnama, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety and Dream Girl.
Ajeeb Daastaans consists of four short films, each helmed by a different director: Shashank Khaitan, Raj Mehta, Neeraj Ghaywan and Kayoze Irani.
It dives into “the complex themes of fractured relationships, exploring human emotions such as jealousy, entitlement, prejudices and toxicity, and their effects.”
The Dharmatic production begins streaming from April 16.
