In general, when a popular Bollywood celebrity is spotted at the airport, they are seen with a number of their staff working around them. These staff help these celebs with luggage, tickets, and other things that they may need. However, recently, the popular actress Nushrratt Bharuccha was spotted at the airport with her family. She herself took out the luggage from the boot of her newly bought BMW iX luxury EV SUV. What happened next was the actress struggled to close the automatic tailgate of her SUV. The entire video of her struggling with her SUV’s boot has now become viral.
The video of Nushrratt Bharuccha with her boot struggles has been shared on YouTube by Cars For You on their channel. It starts off with the actress talking on her phone outside the airport at the drop-off point. The actress arrived at the airport in her all-new BMW iX luxury EV SUV. Following the call, she opened the boot of her SUV and asked an airport staff to pick out her luggage. Moving on, she then asked the paparazzi for a moment to say goodbye to her mom, her sister who was driving the car, and her aunt. After this, she moves to the back of the car and presses the button to close the boot.
However, at this exact moment, her sister Aditi starts driving the car forward. So, because of this, the boot does not close fully and reopens. After this, the actress shouts, and the car stops. She then again presses the button, but this time the boot comes very near to close, but it still does not close. The actress then gets confused and starts laughing. The paparazzi around her also enjoy her struggle. She takes the whole situation light-heartedly but then asks her mom for help as she gets late for her flight. She then moves towards the gate, and meanwhile, the paparazzi click her pictures; her mom can be seen in the background closing the boot lid.
