Nushrratt Bharuccha started wearing the pregnant body suit 25 days before film shoot to get into the character for her upcoming film ‘Chhori’
Nushrratt Bharuccha is all set to take the audiences on a bone-chilling ride with Chhori. The teaser of the film was unveiled very recently and we got to see her in a completely new avatar playing the role of a pregnant lady. Nushrratt had been wearing the pregnant body suit much before the film’s shoot and here’s all we know about it!
Nushrratt, who will be seen as a to-be-mother in the horror flick ‘Chhori’ decided to be in the pregnant body suit 25 days before she started the shoot for the film. The actress decided the same to get in the skin of the character of a pregnant lady, and to deliver her best on sets. Opening up on her decision, Bharuccha said, ” As I’m not actually going to become pregnant for now in reality, I had them make that bodysuit for me to feel what a woman bearing child actually goes through. I was wearing it 20-25 days before the film’s shoot started, and literally did all of my chores including eating, sleeping, going to bathroom, roaming around and everything else to understand the restrictions that it comes with. I had to put myself in it to be able to self-learn everything that’s related to pregnancy, and then bring them on set with a more realistic facet that the masses can connect to. Though, it wasn’t a prop for me but a part of me, I became so used to it that when the shooting began, I felt more comfortable while resting in between the rehearsals in the body suit.”

Sharing her thoughts on the modern aspects of pregnancy, Nushrratt also added, “Since we’ve moved to a very realistic cinema, we don’t need to spoon feed things to the audience. It needs to be so subtle and subliminal that the audience at a subconscious level are convinced to assume you’re pregnant without you actually telling them through conventional actions. It’s been a little tough to adjust with the body suit while sleeping or going to bathroom or while doing mid-squats, but above all every woman has a different pregnancy and sometimes it’s difficult to carry it along with you.”
Fans are jumping in excitement to see Nushrratt as Sakshi, and her journey from the city to a secluded village, where she experiences all things paranormal. Nushrratt has shown her versatility with this never-seen-before avatar and is certainly going to leave the audiences on the edge of their seats. Directed by Vishal Furia and Produced by T-Series, Crypt TV, and Abundantia Entertainment, Chhorii is slated to stream on 26th November 2021, on Prime Video across 240 countries and territories worldwide.
