Recalling her experiences, Nushrratt shared, “Chhalaang completes one year, and I’m gratified to see praises still flowing its way from the lovely audience. As an actor, I have always aspired to bring to the table, something that is completely new and exciting. Having tried my hands in quirky comedy genres earlier, with Chhalaang I wanted to break the conventional mold and try something different and deliver my best at it. Thanks to Hansal Mehta Sir for guiding me on set and nurturing me as an actor and of course Rajkumaar for being such a wonderful co-star, it’s always fun to work with him.”
