“It wasn’t a conscious choice” for Nimrat Kaur to leave Bollywood.

Actress Nimrat Kaur, who has been working on films in Hollywood, wishes she had spent more time in Hindi cinema. Seven years after her previous Hindi feature, Airlift, she returns to Bollywood with the recently released social comedy Dasvi (2016).

“I wish I could have pursued my last Hindi project with a new project much faster,” Kaur says. But that’s something you can’t control, especially if you’re like me and work internationally. After Airlift, I went abroad for six months to film a television drama called Wayward Pines.”

In the interim, Kaur starred in a Hindi web series called The Test Case before returning to the West to film the eighth season of Homeland. She did, however, say that she was selective with Bollywood screenplays since she needed to match up with her debut production, the critically acclaimed The Lunchbox (2013).

“You want to work a lot more, but things don’t fall into place, or you don’t get the kind of project you want,” the 40-year-old explains, adding, “There are a lot of variables you can’t control.” I don’t worry about things that aren’t in my control, which is a good thing because it’s in my nature.”
“I haven’t purposefully avoided [Bollywood] films,” the actor continues. I had a strong desire to work on new projects.” “I’ve enough faith and belief that whatever project I take up in whatever part of the world, no matter how long it takes, there will always be a space in the public’s mind for me,” Kaur says when asked whether she was concerned about being forgotten by the Indian audience due to her absence. It’s encouraging to hear things like “they want to see more of me.” It’s a case of ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder.'”
