Nushrratt Bharuccha’s birthday: When she played a girl with superpowers on the TV show Seven
Actor Nushrratt Bharuccha has broken with his image of the “ girl Pyaar Ka Punchnama ”. The actor has broadened his horizons and played a range of roles over the years – from playing a version of the maniacal pixie dream girl in Chalaang to playing the domestic helper who literally and figuratively loses power in Ajeeb Daastaans.
Nushrratt has been around for over a decade. She may have been noticed with Love Sex Aur Dhokha, and later found fame with the Pyaar Ka Punchnama movies, but few people remember her time on TV.
Nushrratt Bharuchha appeared in two TV shows – Kittie Party (2002) on Zee TV and Seven (2010) on the Sony channel. While she entered the Kittie Party halfway and was a part of it for a few weeks, it was Seven where she had a major role.
Nushrratt was in her twenties when she directed the fantasy drama show Seven. Produced by Aditya Chopra’s YRF Television banner and directed by Siddharth Anand Kumar, the series was written by Anuraadha Tewari, known for writing screenplays for films like Fashion and Heroine, aside from several other popular TV shows.
As Nushrratt turns 36 today, we look back at Seven, a finished series that ran for 26 episodes in 2010.
Seven revolved around the concept of “Saptarishi” or the Seven Sages in Hindu mythology. He followed an astronomer and scientist Doctor Charak who is in search of the seven descendants and their journey to discover their true capacities. He must muster their powers to save the world and fulfill the Ashwamedha prophecy. His rival Asht, the master of evil, prevents him from unraveling this secret.
These seven ordinary people with extraordinary powers are Asmin, Hriday, Varya, Haryaksh, Mastishk, Eklavya and Drishika. Nushrratt played the character of Drishika Kashyap aka Drish, who has visions. She can foresee the future and has strong mental capacities.
Drishika had a fraternal twin – Mastishk Kashyap, who can read people’s minds and manipulate their thoughts. Brothers and sisters derive their strength from the powers of each other.
Seven stars played Raqesh Vashisth, Shama Sikander, Himmanshoo Malhotra, Kashmira Irani, Raashul Tandon, Sunny Hinduja, Riddhi Dogra and others, while Meherzan Mazda played Nushrratt’s on-screen brother. Naveen Kaushik portrayed the main antagonist, Asht. Abhimanyu Ray was her casting director.
While Seven had had a decent run back then, many called her ahead of her time. The show was part of the YRF Television lineup which has produced seven programs so far, including Powder, Mahi Way and Lift Kara De. Seven episodes are available on YouTube.
