A Safe Arrival Amidst Turmoil

Bharuccha's return to Indian soil was marked by both relief and anticipation. She landed at the Mumbai airport on a Sunday afternoon, greeted by a throng of eager media personnel eager to learn about her experiences in Israel. Her fatigue was evident, having endured a harrowing experience.

Invasion of Privacy Amidst Distress


Amidst this turmoil, another disturbing trend unfolded. Media personnel, eager for a comment from Nushrratt, surrounded her upon her arrival in Mumbai. Her silent response was not without reason; she had been through an ordeal that left her in distress. The lack of sensitivity displayed by the media during this moment was deeply concerning. It highlighted a distressing trend of crossing the boundaries of privacy during times of crisis and an insensitivity to her emotional state.

Efforts to Bring Her Home

The reason behind Nushrratt's unexpected extended stay in Israel was the conflict between the country and Hamas militants. She had originally travelled to Israel to attend the prestigious Haifa International  Film Festival. Little did she know that her visit would coincide with a grave crisis. Nushrratt's publicist played a pivotal role in ensuring her safe return. They managed to re-establish contact with her, thanks in part to the intervention of the Embassy. However, due to the absence of direct flights, Nushrratt had to take a connecting flight home, adding to the anxiety of her well-wishers.


A Nation at War

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the nation to prepare themselves for a "long and difficult" war a day after Hamas fired a barrage of thousands of rockets at Israel and sent a wave of fighters who gunned down civilians and took at least 100 hostages.
