The Lunchbox and Airlift actress Nimrat Kaur is set to make her web-series debut with ALTBalaji’s (which is Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms’ initiative.) ‘The Test Case’. This web series will see Nimrat Kaur (Shikha Sharma) as the first woman soldier trained to serve as a combatant in the military.
Nimrat says she felt nostalgic when she wore the uniform for ‘The Test Case’ as her father was an Indian Army officer. She has grown up watching her father putting on the uniform for his work and it was a great honour for her to play a soldier and therefore the web-series is extremely close to her heart.
Nimrat who was featured as a Pakistani ISI agent in the fourth season of the American television series Homeland 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 web-series is directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, who is well known for his films like ‘Dor’ and ‘Iqbal’. This show also features Juhi Chawla, Atul Kulkarni and Rahul Dev. It will begin streaming on April 25th on ALTBalaji.
