Talking about the film, Nushrratt previously opened up about being trolled for her role in the film. The film highlights the struggles of a woman working for a condom company. She told ETimes that it’s a ‘clean film.’ “I have seen so many people being trolled but I don’t know why I thought it would not happen to me with Janhit Mein Jaari. When we were making the film, we never thought or felt that any aspect of this film, any dialogue, scene or sequence would be objectionable. There is no kissing scene, there’s not a single sexual reference or joke in the entire movie. There are no abuses either. It’s such a clean film that I never thought it would get a negative reaction,” she said.

Meanwhile, the actor had recently shared a video of her parents’ reaction to Janhit Mein Jaari on social media. Going by the video, they were left emotional by her performance in the film.
