Mumbai: After a successful run in the West, Nimrat is coming home to join Ekta Kapoor’s untitled digital series where she will be seen preparing to join of the army. Shooting for this series will begin in December.
Before cinema happened to her, Nimrat had aspired to join the Indian army and feels that this series will take her to ‘that world’. Born to an army Major, Nimrat said that life might have given her different opportunities but army will always feel home.
"I grew up in cantonments and have been an outland-out army kid all my life. My father was in the services since the time I was born to my formative years. That environment has enhanced my sense of belonging. Life and time have given me different opportunities but the army will always be my home… Now, I'm getting to do just that, wear the uniform like my father. Growing up, I'd watch Shah Rukh Khan in 'Fauji' and I remember being fascinated with that as well. This show is the closest to being part of that world,” revealed the actress.
The series will be directed by Nagesh Kukunoor who has made a name for himself with movies like ‘Iqbal’ and ‘Dor’....
