Although Nushrat Bharucha had done a few roles before that, her performance in that film became her calling card, so much so that people started recognising her by her character in that film rather than her real name.

While it is tough to leave a mark in the minds of the audience when one is part of an ensemble cast, Bollywood actress Nushrat Bharucha managed to do so in the multi-starrer film, "Pyaar Ka Panchnama". Although she had done a few roles before that, her performance in that film became her calling card, so much so that people started recognising her by her character in that film rather than her real name.

As the actress gears up for her new film "Dream Girl" opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, she hopes people know her name so that she can get rid of the tag of "Panchnama Girl" for good.

"Initially I was taking the tag of 'Panchnama girl' sportingly but then I realised that people called me by that name more than my real name! Thankfully after the success of 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety', things have changed," Nushrat told IANS.

While she had no problem with the tag, she said, "I wondered why would people only call me the 'Panchnama girl' whereas there were two more girls in the film! Did they only remember me and Kartik and not the rest? However, I am happy the way things have panned out now."

In "Dream Girl", Nushrat plays the love interest of the protagonist played by Ayushmann. Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, the film features Annu Kapoor, Vijay Raaz and Rajesh Sharma, and is scheduled to release on September 13.
