Actress Nushrratt Bharuccha revealed the intense marriage pressure she went through at the start of her acting career.
In her community everyone gets married at a very young age but Nushrratt has a lot to explore and achieve before jumping into a life laced with commitments.
In an interview with Zoom, the Ram Setu actress said, “I conned them. It was years of conning. It was tough because I come from a Bohri Muslim family and in Bohri Muslim families, girls are married off at a very young age. I don’t understand why but it’s just a cultural thing. Even boys get married really early. So, after I did 1-2 films, I had the pressure to get married. So, I conned my parents saying that only one more film I’ll finish and then I’ll get married.”
Bharuccha further added, “And this kept going on. But while I was doing that, I was meeting the boys for rishtas also, so that there was no conflict in the house where I could tell them that I’m going to see the boy na, if I like the boy, I’ll get married but it just never happened.”
“I met potential matches, so my family could not complain about me being single.”
