Talented Indian actor Nimrat Kaur, who has been rubbing shoulders with Hollywood’s creme de la creme at foreign awards’ galas since her internationally acclaimed and BAFTA-nominated film The Lunchbox and American TV series Homeland, says the scope of roles for Indian actors has widened across the globe.
“The scope for Indian actors is widening everywhere in the world. The world is becoming a smaller place. Actors are nowadays preferring to work in different places.
“Besides, I don’t think I would have been able to make the career that I have today, 10 years ago. A lot of multiplexes are coming up, and making a film is not as difficult as it was earlier,” Nimrat told IANS ahead of the premiere of The Lunchbox on Valentine’s Day on &pictures Saturday.
The actress was last week at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards red carpet as The Lunchbox was nominated in the Film Not in the English Language category. It lost to Polish drama Ida. But winning and losing awards doesn’t matter to Nimrat, who essayed a lovelorn wife named Ila in the movie.
