Singers turning actors in Punjabi Film Industry is not new, we have seen a lot of singers from Diljit Dosanjh to Tarsem Jassar turn to actor and they are big stars there. Now another name has joined the list and this time it’s a female; recently, we saw singer Nimrat Khaira made her acting debut in the movie ‘Lahoriye’, where she was seen as Amrinder Gill’s sister, yes she was not in the lead role but she is slowly becoming a big female star in Punjab.
She is a very popular singer and her song always gets a good response from the audience and now she is focusing on her acting career. In a recent interview, she said that she was overwhelmed with the success of her film ‘Lahoriye’. “I am a more confident actor now and it would help me in my career, ‘Lahoriye’ was a risk I took just to see myself as an actor and to see will the audience accepts me as an actor or not and now I am looking forward to doing more movies”, she said.
She also revealed that acting is something which she always dreamed of. “I always liked to perform in front of the audience, so I knew that it was in me, but I didn’t know how to start it”, she stated. She also talked about her struggle after winning the Voice of Punjab in 2012; she said that she was focused than disheartened in that period.
It’s good that we are getting original Punjabi actresses in the Industry and female Punjabi actresses are trying acting, it’s really good. Earlier the Industry used to get the actresses from Bollywood, who couldn’t speak Punjabi properly.
