Nimrat’s happy with her career
Her last film was the 2013 hit, The Lunchbox, but actor Nimrat Kaur (right) is not worried about her absence from the big screen, as she says that she prefers quality over quantity.
While she was busy working in the fourth season of the hit American espionage thriller Homeland last year, the 33-year-old actor did not have any release this year. “For me, it is quality over quantity. It is not possible for me do all types of roles. Plus, I am starting now (in the film industry), I cannot be dictating terms like that. I am happy the way it (career) is going,” says Nimrat.
The actor is looking forward to her next film in which she will star alongside actor Akshay Kumar. Nimrat may have had a dry spell at the home front, but she made her mark internationally with the role of Tasneem Qureshi in Homeland. Her stint on American TV was followed by actor Priyanka Chopra’s lead role in another series — Quantico. But Nimrat says that the trend of Indian actors appearing in TV projects in the US is nothing new.
“There are so many Indians, who have good roles in American TV shows like Kunal Nayyar, Archie Punjabi and even Irrfan. I think Irrfan is a pioneer in that sense. This is nothing new, it has been happening for a while. It is just that more attention is given to it now,” she says.
The actor is open to doing more projects outside of India, saying, “I think I will go where ever the wind takes me. It is a great environment to work; the technicians and actors are amazing. There is so much to learn.” Talking about her next film, directed by Vasan Bala, she says, “I have a very special role in the film. It is a nice film.”
