Nimrat Kaur was last seen in The Lunchbox, 2013

In an interview with the Times of India, Nimrat opened up about her life and her career. She also shared that her father was killed by Hizb-ul-Mujahideen while she was very young. Nimrat said, "Patiala for me is Punjab, very endearing. It was also the last time that we were all there as a family with my father before he went to Kashmir. He was a young army major, an engineer posted on the border roads of the army in a place called Verinag (if you travel to Srinagar from Jammu, there is a tunnel called Jawahar Tunnel that comes on the way. And the first valley after that is Verinag). Kashmir was not a family station, so we continued living in Patiala when he went to Kashmir. We were on our winter vacation in January 1994 and visiting our father in Kashmir, when the Hizb-ul-Mujahideen kidnapped him from his place of work and after seven days, terminated him. They had made some ridiculous demands of some terrorists to be released that he obviously did not agree to. He was just 44 when he died. We got the news and flew back with his body to Delhi and I saw his body for the first time only in Delhi."

On the love front she added, "Yes I have (been in love), a few times, but never with a film star. I have not been in a relationship since I did The Lunchbox."

I can't wait to see the Homeland fame in Airlift... Hope she's a game changer there too!
