Can’t give im­pul­sive re­ac­tions on sen­si­tive top­ics: Nim­rat

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja ■

Ac­tor Nim­rat Kaur (above) be­lieves in speak­ing her heart out and doesn’t re­ally care if it is not in tune with the pre­vail­ing thought of the day. Re­cently, ac­tors Sushant Singh Ra­jput’s and Pari­neeti Chopra’s re­fusal to com­ment on the sen­si­tive Kulb­hushan Jha­dav case (about an In­dian na­tional, who has been given death sentence by a mil­i­tary court in Pak­istan), sparked a de­bate on whether it’s right to ex­pect celebri­ties and pub­lic fig­ures to have an opin­ion on every­thing un­der the sun.

Re­act­ing to this, Nim­rat says that she too has been in sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tions, where she was asked about sub­jects, which she wasn’t well in­formed about. “I can’t give im­pul­sive re­ac­tions on a sen­si­tive topic, so I absolutely re­frain from talk­ing about it. I po­litely try to just re­main quiet or say that this is not the right time to talk about it. That’s ac­tu­ally the only way to not give fur­ther at­ten­tion to some­thing that should not be hap­pen­ing.”

Nim­rat, who has worked in films such as The Lunch­box (2013) and Air­lift (2016), feels that one “can­not have the knowhow of every­thing”.

Nim­rat also points out that since an ac­tor is mostly travelling and shoot­ing at re­mote lo­ca­tions, it’s tough to keep track of newsy de­vel­op­ments. “And then when we come back to Mum­bai, so much has happened — news­pa­pers are flooded, social me­dia is go­ing crazy about some con­tro­versy or the other. And sud­denly we’re bom­barded with ques­tions, ‘Can you please an­swer this’, and if then we choose not to an­swer, why is that’s a prob­lem?” she asks.
