The show is a political thriller and the 32 years old actress will be seen playing a high level operative of Pakistani intelligence agency, ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence). It is in sharp contrast with her role as the neglected housewife in ‘The Lunch Box’. This is Nimrat’s first ever international project and she is happy that it is such a well known show.
Nimrat Kaur is currently in Capetown, South Africa to shoot for the show. Yesterday she posted on Twitter, “Pretty fun for someone who watched the pilot after the screen test! Season 4 Homeland it is.” Later she also posted a photo of her luggage after arrival.
After the audition, she was confirmed within a week. Describing her character she said, “I play a top ISI agent who is the CIA’s enemy. In a way, she could be Carrie’s (a CIA officer with a bipolar disorder in the same series) counterpart, but Tasleem is a Pakistani agent.”
Nimrat said she will be involved in some action scenes as well. Nimrat is very impressed with the shooting set-up and the bonding shown by the show’s lead stars Clare Danes, Damian Lewis and Mandy Patinkin.
“They’ve seen me in The Lunch Box and have been insisting that I make some delicious Indian food for them…I decided to take them out for lunch at a local Indian restaurant in Cape Town,” said Nimrat.
