Nushrratt Bharuccha, who was stuck in Israel following the Hamas terror assault, arrived back in Mumbai on Sunday. On Sunday afternoon, the paparazzi saw Nushrratt leaving the Mumbai airport. To attend the Haifa International Film Festival, Nushrratt traveled to Israel. Her presence at the film festival was documented in photos and videos that were posted online.
The actress seemed to be disturbed. Likewise, Nushrratt Bharuccha showed signs of emotion. She was surrounded when she exited the airport.
Her team reported on Saturday that Nushratt was trapped in Israel during the unexpected Hamas strike. They had spoken to her immediately after, but since Saturday afternoon they had not heard from her. Her team had earlier in the day informed News18 in a statement that they had reunited with her and that she was on her way home.
In a statement to News18, Nushrratt’s team stated, “We have finally been able to get in touch with Nushrratt and with the assistance of the Embassy, she is being brought back home safely.” She is taking a connection journey home since we were unable to book a straight ticket. More information cannot be disclosed for her safety, but we will let you know as soon as she arrives in India. We thank God that she is safe and traveling to India, and we are relieved,” they said.
According to a source in the Israeli administration, Nushratt arrived at the airport but was unable to board her aircraft because of the commotion there. On Saturday during the Jewish holy holiday of Simchat Torah, Hamas conducted a surprise assault on Israel that included militants scaling security fences and a barrage of missiles fired from Gaza.
To attend the Haifa International Film Festival, Nushrratt traveled to Israel. The film festival included her movie Akelli. Nushratt and Israeli singer Tsahi Halevi may be seen performing together in the festival footage. 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.
