Bollywood actress Nushrratt Bharuccha, who went to Israel to attend the Haifa International Film Festival, has been stuck in the country amid the ongoing war between Israel and Palestine. However, as per the latest update from her team, the actor has successfully reached the airport area, which is comparatively safer, and will soon be boarding a flight out of Israel.
Nushrratt’s team was unable to contact her since Saturday afternoon, but they were able to reach her on Sunday morning. She told them that she was safe and in the basement of a building with other people.
Nushrratt’s mother, Tasneem, told India TV that her daughter is coming back and is safe. “We are very happy and kept saying the same thing again and again,” she said.
The Indian government has been working with the Israeli government to ensure Nushrratt’s safety and to get her out of the country as soon as possible.
Nushrratt’s journey to Israel
Nushrratt left for Israel on October 6 to attend the Haifa International Film Festival, which is scheduled to take place from October 13-22. She was invited to the festival to be honored with the Haifa Award for Excellence in Cinema.
Nushrratt was excited about her trip to Israel and had shared her thoughts on social media before leaving. She wrote, “I’m so honored to be invited to the Haifa International Film Festival and to be receiving the Haifa Award for Excellence in Cinema. I’m really looking forward to meeting all the filmmakers and other artists who will be attending the festival, and to experiencing the rich culture of Israel.”
The conflict between Israel and Palestine
The conflict between Israel and Palestine is a complex one with a long history. The two sides have been fighting for decades over the land of Palestine, which is claimed by both sides.
The current conflict began on May 10, 2023, when Hamas, a Palestinian militant group, fired rockets at Israel in response to the Israeli police’s eviction of Palestinian families from the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of East Jerusalem.
Israel responded with airstrikes on Gaza, and the two sides have been engaged in heavy fighting ever since. The conflict has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people on both sides.
Nushrratt’s safety has been a major concern for her family and friends, given the ongoing conflict in Israel. However, her team has assured everyone that she is safe and that they are working to get her out of the country as soon as possible.
The impact of the conflict on the film industry
The conflict between Israel and Palestine has had a significant impact on the film industry in both countries. Many film festivals and other events have been canceled or postponed, and filmmakers have been unable to work on their projects.
The conflict has also had a financial impact on the film industry. Many cinemas have closed, and there has been a drop in ticket sales.
The conflict between Israel and Palestine is a tragic one that has caused immense suffering to people on both sides. It is important to remember that Nushrratt is just one of many people who have been affected by the conflict.
We hope that Nushrratt is able to return home safely soon, and that the conflict between Israel and Palestine comes to an end soon.
