Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia talks about her career, losing offers to Shehnaaz Gill & Niti Taylor

Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia of Choti Sardarni fame has come a long way since her humble beginnings. The actress, who was almost set to appear in Diljit Dosanjh's Honsla Rakh (2021), has regrets about the association not working out.

While one does feel bad about losing out on certain projects, Nimrit says she was heartbroken as she was so eager to work with Diljit.

"I was offered Honsla Rakh during Chhoti Sardarni. It was Diljit (Dosanjh) sir who had reached out himself. He texted me on Instagram and asked if I would test for a part. I woke up to his message and started crying,” she said.

“However, Shehnaaz ended up doing the character I auditioned for. It was sad that I didn’t get to work with him. Lot of things didn’t work out... Covid was at its peak. And again somebody’s miss is somebody’s gain,” added Nimrit.

The Delhi girl further reveals that this wasn't the first time she lost an opportunity which she was passionate about. Before this episode, a project couldn't materialise as the makers preferred a star kid over her.

Talking about the experience, she said “I felt this was too easy. I wondered if this was going to happen despite me not being a star kid. It was too good to be true. But they reverted; I waited for a few days and they just kept ghosting me. It does not come that easy for people like us (outsiders). That’s when reality hit me,” she stated.

Further mentioning about how the show Takht happened, Nimrit said, “I still remember I had auditioned for Takht. Shaano (Sharma, casting director)’s team told me to not sign the show and wait a little. There were two characters being introduced that were pivotal to the plot. But I was like I can’t wait, this is a TV show but I’m playing the lead here. I wanted to act so bad.”

Noteworthy, Nimrit’s first TV audition was for the hit TV show Ishqbaaaz. “Somehow I got that audition. I was like I don’t want to do TV. Yet I went for the audition, as I wanted to just face the camera. Even I did a mock shoot. But the part went to Niti (Taylor, actor), as I was told that my face is too similar to Surbhi (Chandna, actor)," she concluded.
