Nimrat Kaur is known for different roles that she has portrayed earlier, be it AIRLIFT or LUNCHBOX, and the latest being part of American television series ‘Homeland’.
With actors seen in web series like Swara Bhaskar, Richa Chadha, Lisa Haydon we have Nimrat Kaur follow the bandwagon.
Yes you heard it right! Nimrat Kaur will feature in Ekta Kapoor’s premiere digital app ALT Balaji as it announces its first original series.
ALT Balaji, which will launch in early 2017, will boast of a variety of original, exclusive and disruptive content. The series will be directed by ace director Nagesh Kukunoor.
The series is set against the backdrop of the Indian army and has been jointly conceptualized by Ekta Kapoor and Samar Khan.
Nimrat Kaur will essay the role of first woman who is preparing to be inducted in a combat role in Indian Army.
Speaking about the same, Ekta Kapoor said, “When we announced the launch of ALT Balaji, we promised to break stereotypes in storytelling. This series is a strong reinforcement of that commitment. The ALT wave has begun and we’re excited to kick start the announcement with this duo. While Nimrat is known for her unconventional choice of roles, Nagesh is known for his alternative style of filmmaking, both of which align with the core ethos of ALT Balaji.”
Nimrat on being associated with this project, says, “Unconventional projects interest me and I am always on the lookout to do something that I have never done before. After 'Homeland', I was keen to do a show that pushes me as an actor and that’s exactly what I found in this one. The story is set on the backdrop of the Indian army and coming from one myself, I got hooked instantly. What's exciting about partnering with Ekta for her platform ALT Balaji is the common belief that we need to shake up digital entertainment with power-packed, strong and brave original content. I am pretty certain, this is it.”
Nagesh Kukunoor, who marks his debut into the digital world with this show, opined, “The digital revolution in India is going to be huge and today we are only at its tip.
Ekta and I have decided to partner on an exciting show as she forays into the digital space with ALT Balaji. We aim to usher a new genre of bold and gripping storytelling in this medium. I'm excited because I've never ventured into this particular genre and that too on a digital platform!”
