Welcome Nimrat Kaur as a fearless combat specialist in Nagesh Kukunoor's The Test Case

Nimrat Kaur, who had an eventful year with Airlift and TV series Wayward Pines, says the depth and dynamism of the character drew her towards the project

The first poster of Nimrat Kaur, who will be seen playing the role of a combat specialist in Ekta Kapoor’s new web series, is here and it looks amazing. Ekta’s premiere digital app ALT Balaji announced its first original series with the “Homeland” star in the lead.

Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor and produced by Endemol Shine India, The Test Case series is set against the backdrop of the Indian Army. It has been jointly conceptualised by Ekta and Samar Khan. Nimrat will essay the role of the first woman preparing to be inducted in a combat role in the Indian Army.

Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter on Wednesday and shared the first poster of the series with a caption: Nimrat Kaur’s look in ALTBalaji’s digital show #TheTestCase… Also stars Juhi Chawla and Atul Kulkarni… Nagesh Kukunoor directs.

The actress looks absolutely stunning in the uniform and that bold and fierce look on her face is just incredible. Featuring Nimrat Kaur as Shikha Sharma, the caption on the poster reads: When terrorists are at your door, will you trust a woman to shoot them down?

Nimrat, who had an eventful year with Airlift and Manoj Night Shyamalan’s TV series Wayward Pines, says the depth and dynamism of the character drew her towards the project.

“Roles that have an edge and are perceived as unconventional in nature have always drawn me towards them immensely. This digital show, a medium I haven’t explored yet was a great follow up to ‘Homeland’ and ‘Wayward Pines’ which were my earlier attempts at the same,” Nimrat said.

The actress added that “the relatability and connection to the story came almost instantly owing to my love and passion for the army”.

ALT Balaji marks Ekta’s foray into the digital domain, with her app, which will showcase exclusive, original, and never-seen-before content and the shows will start streaming from April 16 this year. “When we announced the launch of ALT Balaji, we promised to break stereotypes in storytelling. This series is a strong reinforcement of that commitment. The ALT wave has begun and we’re excited to kick start the announcement with this duo,” Ekta said.
