Nim­rat’s happy with her ca­reer

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.”
