Nushrratt Bharuccha, known for her performance in “Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety”, and “Chhorii” was in Israel to attend the Haifa International Film Festival, which ran through 28 September and 7 October, as per media reports.
Earlier in the day, Bharuccha‘s publicist, Sanchita Trivedi, said the actor is “safe” and was on her way to India.
According to reports, the actor’s team had lost contact with her after a surprise attack by Hamas militants from Gaza Strip at daybreak killed at least 22 Israelis on Saturday even as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared “war” and said his country would extract an “unprecedented price” from its enemy.
She was last seen in Akelli, the thriller drama in which she played an ordinary Indian woman battling for survival while trapped in a combat zone in Iraq. She will now be seen in Chhorii 2.
Hamas fighters of the Gaza Strip have carried out an unprecedented, multifront attack on Israel, firing thousands of rockets as dozens of Hamas fighters infiltrated the heavily fortified border in several locations and catching the country off-guard on a major holiday.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared Israel was “at war” and called for a mass mobilization of army reserves. The invasion revived memories of the 1973 war practically 50 years to the day.
