Nushrat revealed, "I think my image is stuck in other people's perception. I was one of the shortlisted girls for the female lead of the Oscar-winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire' along with Freida Pinto." But the lady lost the precious role because of her looks.


Nushrat was told  that she doesn’t look like a girl from the slums, hence she didn’t get the role. "But I was not finalised because of my looks. (Director) Danny Boyle's team sat me down and explained that I do not look like a girl coming from slum area. I was told that I am a damn good actor and everything is perfect except the fact that my look doesn't fit the character."


This has happened with the actress many times that she has been stereotyped into the role or out of the role and not given a variety of films to explore. On talking about why she thinks she hasn’t received stardom, the actress said that she is not the one ruling the film yet.


 "I was not bad in the film. People noticed me as well, but I was not defining the brand of the film. I was adding a value to that. So, at red carpets and award ceremonies, people said, 'She is the Panchnama girl', without even knowing my name properly," replied Nushrat.


Even if Nushrat has not managed to achieve mass appreciation, she has done commercially good films like PKP series and now Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
