In the wake of the Hamas terror incident, Nushrratt Bharuccha is stuck in Israel. The actress traveled to Israel to attend the Haifa International Film Festival, where Akelli, her film, was shown. Her team has been unable to contact her since Saturday, but according to sources within the Israeli government, Nushrratt has arrived at the airport but has missed her flight because of the commotion. In the meanwhile, a video of Nushrratt from the film festival has started going viral. Nushratt and Israeli singer Tsahi Halevi might be seen singing together in the video.
Nushratt may be seen performing Amitabh Bachchan’s song Tere Jaisa Yaar Kahan from the 1981 movie Yaarana in the video posted on X (formerly known as Twitter). Tsahi Halevi joined her as well. The two performed the song jointly while the crowd applauded them. Nushrratt Bharuccha and Tsahi Halevi were shown smiling together in another post.
Nushrratt Bharuccha played the lead in the movie Akelli, while Tsahi Halevi and Amir Boutrous also had significant parts. In India, the movie came out earlier this year.
Nushrratt, meantime, was left trapped in Israel after a surprise assault by Hamas on Israel on Saturday on the Jewish high festival of Simchat Torah, which included gunmen breaching security barricades and a barrage of missiles fired from Gaza. Following the assault, Israel and Palestine went to war with one another. According to reports, there have been close to 500 fatalities since the assaults.
