Actress Nushrratt Bharuccha shares Israel War Experience


Mumbai: Actress Nushrratt Bharuccha, who recently flew back to India after being stranded at Tel Aviv in the attack over Israel by Hamas, has detailed her experience of being stuck in the turmoil.

Taking to her Instagram Tuesday, the actress said, “Today, when I woke up in my house safe with no sounds around me, I realise how fortunate we are to live in this country and be so protected.”

The Chhorii actress was in Israel for the screening of her recent film Akelli at Haifa International Film Festival.

“We were woken up to the deafening sounds of bombs going off, a blaring siren, and complete and utter panic as we were all rushed down into a ‘shelter’ in the basement of our hotel,” she shared.

Although the Indian Embassy was situated barely 2 km from their hotel, it seemed like a distance of a lifetime as there was no mode of transport whatsoever and only the dreadful sounds of explosions at very close range, added the actress.

Nushrratt then detailed the helping hands that came her way, “But this was also when help had come in for us from completely unexpected quarters: calls from our Israeli co-actors, guidance from the Indian and Israeli embassies, the kind staff at the hotel and, most miraculously, a taxi driver who selflessly helped us at this most difficult and life-threatening time of our lives! We mustered all the courage we could find and picked ourselves up to somehow get to the airport and take any flight out to any country we could manage to. Our journey out of our Tel Aviv hotel was not easy, to put it mildly… praying the whole time, even crying sometimes, we held onto each other for courage to keep on going, somehow making it to Ben Gurion Airport.”
“But with an experience that has made me immensely grateful for the safety and security that we almost take for granted,” she concluded.
