Nimrat Kaur returned to a Hindi movie set after five years in the month of March this year. She shot Dasvi with Abhishek Bachchan and Yami Gautam-Dhar in parts of Delhi and Lucknow. The film was a few days shy of completion when the second wave of the pandemic lashed across the country and shoots had to be stopped for a few months. In the course of that, the actress not only maintained the weight she had piled on to play her part but she also did not start the prep or readings for another film to avoid clashes with her ongoing project’s prep.

Talking about it, Nimrat told BT, “This role was something totally unprecedented; I didn’t think we would actually end up breaking up the schedule a few days short of completing the film.

It was an unforeseen and unfortunate time when people suffered so much and lost so many loved ones. We had to pack up and get back home when I was only a few days away from wrapping up all the work on it. It was cathartic to come back to what we started in February-March this year. I completed it in July-August. That defines the nature of the times we are in. The good part is that this film was also some sort of an experience of coming back to life and experiencing some kind of normalcy in life. The idea of normalcy is being redefined in many ways.” She also adds, “The part was tiny but crucial. So, I had to hold on to all that I had learned and prepared for my role. I didn’t want to mix up the thoughts I had for this film and the mindset I was in with another project. So, now that we’re done, I can start figuring out what I want to do next.”

From the looks of it, Nimrat plays a politician in the comical drama.
