Actress Nimrat Kaur has fascinated us with many empowered roles. Now it’s time to break into widely popular digital genres. ‘The Lunchbox’ actress Kaur has been chosen to play the lead in Nagesh Kukunoor’s web seriesfor Ekta Kapoor’s ALT Balaji. Reportedly, we’ll get to watch Kaur playing a combat officer in the Indian Army. Nimrat will portray the role of the first woman preparing to be inducted in a combat role in the Indian Army.
Not a newbee in the digital world, Kaur was earlier seen in Manoj Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines 2. Ekta Kapoor’s first digital series for the app, ALT Balaji has recently announced the original fiction series with the Homeland star in the lead, which is yet to be titled. The story of the series revolves around the Indian Army concept and has been jointly conceptualised by Ekta and Samar Khan, read a statement.
“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,” Ekta said, reported by Mumbai Mirror.
Nimrat’s role in Airlift wasn’t that much appreciated as the actress did not get much screen space. But here she comes back with a bang at the end of the year, essaying a character that could tear out all the stereotypes society holds.
ALT Balaji will be launched in early 2017, and the shooting kicks off in December. Cheers to Ekta Kapoor for finally focusing on something exclusive, original, and never-seen before content.
