Nimrat Kaur

We are talking of her good looks, cute and mature expressions in the new Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk Traffic Jam commercial today but, Nimrat Kaur has been a very regular face on TV and print advertisements from a very long time. The first ad I remember of her is the Maruti Suzuki WagonR – Star Interview TVC (aired in some 2007). She was even riding the Suzuki Swish 125CC bike before the Cadbury ad gave her good looks and gesticulating talent the much deserved breakthrough to fame nationwide!

The 31-year-old Nimrat (DOB: 13 March 1982) is from Pilani, Rajasthan. She was brought up in Delhi.

A graduate in Commerce from Shri Ram College of Commerce, Nimrat started as an ad model before making acting in theatres her profession. She has done several plays and stage shows like Baghdad WeddingRed SparrowDamages, and All About Women. Miss Kaur’s untangled and effortless acting is apparent in her innumerous television and print commercials where she lights up to give a persona to products. Some of brands modelled by Nimrat include Asian Paints – Har rang kuch kehta hai, Boroplus, Aircel 3G, Britannia, Kaya Skin Clinic, TRS Garam Masala, Pantaloons, Suzuki Swish, WagonR, Cadbury Silk, Frontier Bazar, ICICI, Clinic All Clear, Coca Cola, and Dish TV.

We brag of Aishwarya, Freida, and Mallika walking the red carpet but, Nimrat has had her accolades in Hollywood already. She has been recognized for her role in the award-winning, historical epic film, One Night with the King (2006), a Anurag Kashyap’s short film called Encounter (2010), and in his another award-winning attempt, Peddlers (2012), which was featured at various international film festivals! She also played a key supporting role in Hindi comedy flick, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana (2012).

Nimrat is the young protagonist who portrayed the traditional housewife character in Ritesh Batra’s The Lunchbox (Dabba in Hindi). The film won the Grand Rail d’Or (best feature film) at Cannes 2013 and it also brought some recognition to the stage artist. The film will hit cinema halls on 20 September ’13.
