Actor Nimrat Kaur, who is shooting for the American television series, Homeland, says that things are more professional in the West, and that the cast and crew there respect time. “They make every effort to always be punctual. They respect time and their quality of work, too, is one notch above us. The level of commitment and eye for little detail is brilliant,” says the actor, who plays an ISI agent in the series.
Talking about her role in the series, the 32-year-old says, “It’s a different world for me. I have never known a spy or met a spy, so I don’t really know how they work. Also, I am new to the film industry so everything is still new for me.”

The TV series also has different directors for different episodes, and working with them is also a challenge that Nimrat says she enjoys. “It does make me anxious and you do get in self doubt mode sometimes, but then, it’s a challenge. I love it and I am really enjoying it. The people on the sets are also very warm and helpful and despite all the cultural differences, they try to make me comfortable,” she says. However, the actor, who won critical acclaim for her role in The Lunchbox (2013) jokes that she misses the cutting chai that one gets on Indian sets.
