Actress Nimrat Kaur, known for her stints in the international TV space, says she has no plans to venture on to the small screen in India anytime soon, and wants to focus on her film career.
Nimrat, who is seen in Manoj Night Shyamalan’s TV series Wayward Pines, also feels TV work in the West has a lot more scope.
“I have no plans to do television in India anytime soon. I am looking at only film work in India because TV work in the West has a lot more scope to get into an interesting phase here,” Nimrat told IANS in an email interview.
Nimrat Kaur knew her debut film The Lunchbox will be a tough act to follow but is happy with the way her career is shaping up as she feels it is an interesting time to be an actor in India. The epistolary drama, which revolved around a lonely wife, who connects with a soon-to-retire government employee via letters in a tiffin box, was a breakout role for Nimrat.
She immediately went on to star in international TV show Homeland. The actress, who earlier garnered applause for her role as a Pakistani ISI agent in American show Homeland, added that if given a chance she would love to explore the non-fiction television space.
She said: “I would love to do something non-fiction but fiction not anytime soon. Definitely not.”
The Airlift actress was paired with American star Jason Patric in the series, based on the Wayward Pines novels by Blake Crouch and developed for television by Chad Hodge.
The series stars Matt Dillon as Ethan Burke, a US Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two fellow agents in the mysterious small town of Wayward Pines, Idaho. The final episode of the series will be aired on Friday on Star World Premiere HD.
