Nimrat Kaur Says Acting Abroad Does Not Count As Work Experience In India

Published on 24 January, 2018 at 5:11 pm By

After appearing in two American shows “Homeland” and “Wayward Pines”, Nimrat Kaur is making her way back to the Indian entertainment industry. “The Lunchbox” and “Airlift” actress would be making her debut on the digital platform with a web series titled “The Test Case.”

Though many would see working in Hollywood as a career boost, Kaur believes otherwise. In an apparent dig at Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra, she thinks that her stint in the West isn’t counted as work experience in India.

She said in an interview:

“An actor is only talked about in the country when he/she is doing films here. I have worked abroad but that doesn’t really translate here as work experience, so I am just two films old.”



She added:

“How you are remembered in India is by the films that you are doing here.”

In The Test Case, she is essaying the role of Shikha Sharma who is the only woman to be enrolled in the Special Forces Training Centre and dreams of becoming the first female commandant of the force. In the web series, Sharma struggles to carve out her own identity in the male-dominated arena.

According to Kaur, The Test Case is a big opportunity for her and she would not have let it go.

She feels that since there are not many women officers in this profession, which is why not many female actors are seen doing the roles of Army officers on screen. Nimrat hails from an Army background as her father was an Indian Army officer and as she has grown up in cantonment areas.

“Also, I can’t recall films being made on Army or about war front here, while in Hollywood you see a massive strength of movies being made on army, soldier or war.”
