Actor Nimrat Kaur is busy with filmmaker Nagesh Kukunoor’s web series, in which she plays an army officer. This yet-to-be-titled project is Ekta Kapoor’s ALT Balaji’s first original series. The video has a cameo by Bollywood star Juhi Chawla, and will also star actor Akshay Oberoi.
This is the first video from the series where Nimrat is seen giving out a warm message on the occasion of International Women’s Day. She quotes poet Maya Angelou, “You may shoot me with your words, you may cut me with your eyes, you may kill me with your hatefulness, but still, like air, I’ll rise!”
Talking about her experience of acting in the empowering web series, Nimrat was quoted by India Today, “Roles that have an edge and are perceived as unconventional in nature have always drawn me towards them. This digital show, a medium I hadn’t explored so far, was a great follow up to Homeland and Wayward Pines, which were my earlier attempts at the same.”
Did she relate to her character? “The connection to the story came almost instantly, owing to my love and passion for the armed forces,” added Nimrat.
The web series is expected to go on air in April.
