Actor Nushrratt Bharuccha, who was stranded in Israel during the Hamas attack, is now being brought back to India. It was previously reported that her team had lost contact with her.

“We have finally managed to get in touch with Nushrratt and with the help of the Embassy, she is being safely brought back home. We did not get a direct flight so she is on a connecting flight home. For her further safety, more details cannot be shared but as soon as she lands in India, we will inform you. We are relieved and thank god that she is safe and on her way to India,” the actor’s team said in a statement.

Nushrratt, 38, had travelled to Israel to attend the Haifa International Film Festival. She was in Haifa for the maiden screening of her film Akelli, which also features Israeli actors Tsahi Halevi and Amir Boutrous, known for their roles in the popular web series Fauda.

The Hamas rocket attacks on Israel cities have resulted in nearly 500 deaths, prompting Tel Aviv to launch counterstrikes. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to avenge the attacks, referring to it as a “black day.”

“Hamas has started a brutal and evil war. We will be victorious in this war despite an unbearable price,” Netanyahu said in a statement.

The state of Palestine, in response to the ongoing conflict, has emphasized the importance of addressing the political issues and enabling the Palestinian people to exercise their right to self-determination and establish their own state.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his shock at the terrorist attacks in Israel and offered support. “We stand in solidarity with Israel at this difficult hour,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Indian Embassy in Israel has urged Indian citizens to remain vigilant and follow safety protocols. They have advised individuals to exercise caution, avoid unnecessary movement, and seek safety in shelters.
