Nimrat Kaur's understated performance in Ritesh Batra 's ‘The Lunchbox’ left viewers gasping for more. Now that the film has been nominated for the prestigious British Academy Of Films and Television Arts (BAFTA), she says the project has been like a ‘Pandora's Box’ which keeps throwing up surprises.
It's a great way to start the New Year, says Indian director Ritesh Batra, whose debut feature movie ‘The Lunchbox’ has been nominated in the Film Not in the English Language category of the British Academy Film Awards 2015.
`The Lunchbox` actress Nimrat Kaur, who is all set to debut on American series `Homeland` as ISI agent Tasneem Kureshi, says she plays Claire Danes` nemesis on the show but is not sure whether she will share screen space with the Golden Globe-winning actress.
`The Lunchbox` actress Nimrat Kaur celebrated the 68th Independence Day in a very unusual style. The actress, who is currently in Cape Town celebrated the day by indulging in some adventure activities like trekking.
After finding global visibility with `The Lunchbox`, Indian actress Nimrat Kaur has landed a chance to play a Pakistani character in the fourth season of hit American series `Homeland`, set in Islamabad.
Nimrat Kaur wasn`t craving for international stardom, but that seems to be her calling and destiny, given that she has landed a part in the hit foreign TV series "Homeland". She says in the time between "The Lunchbox" and "Homeland", she refused umpteen roles in searching for "something right".
Indian filmmaker Ritesh Batra`s critically acclaimed film `The Lunchbox` beat out Hollywood movies, Oscar contenders, and all other foreign-language films to score the number one per-theatre average gross of any film in North America last weekend.
