Nimrat Kaur the Choti Sarrdaarni of TV has been on a wonderful journey filled with varied emotions as she plays the role of Meher in the Colors show.
Choti Sarrdaarni produced by Cockrow and Shaika Entertainment has been an eye-opener for the TV industry and its success in rather quick time has conveyed strongly that relatable emotions and circumstances can win hearts instantly.
The show got into the Top 3 fiction shows across GECs last week and each and every character in the show has bagged appreciation.
Says Nimrat, “There are a lot of things that have collectively come together and made the show what it is today. The script of Choti Sarrdaarni was a winner on paper. So there was no doubt of it doing so well. The way the story hits various chords in the hearts of viewers have been reason enough for the good ratings.”
Nimrat who is bestowed to have got this interesting lead role of Meher as her debut role on TV feels that the one thing that has made all the difference for the success of the show is its perfect casting. “I think every character has been beautifully layered and different shades have been given to every character. It is rare, especially in a daily to see every character becoming so very important. There are no fillers and everyone is given equal importance.”
Nimrat Kaur is happy that the journey of Meher has been accepted by audience. “Meher and Manav were loved by viewers. Post that, the reactions and positive response we have got for Sarabjit and Meher’s mature bond is amazing. Of course, the icing on the cake has been the bond between Meher and Param. I believe that when you love your character, you will give it your 100%. That is exactly what we all as actors are doing. We have been working on our character with utmost honesty.”
Speaking about Meher’s initial love story with Manav (Hitesh Bhardwaj), she exclaims, “The foundation to this cute love story was laid there. It was actually tough for me and Hitesh to show an onscreen dating phase of four years when we had actually just started shooting. We worked on our scenes together to get that chemistry right. And we are grateful that viewers loved Manav and Meher.”
“After Manav’s death, there was a slight fear within us as we were entering into a new phase, and a fresh story, that of Meher’s journey with Sarabjit (Avinesh Rekhi). It is really tough to snap out or cut the chord from one phase and get into another. However, the fact was that we never wanted to erase the memory of Manav and write a new story. We have shown many sequences wherein Meher was still living her life with Manav in her dreams. We are glad that viewers have accepted Sarabjit and Meher’s bond now.”
Nimrat has learnt a lot with this experience and has grown as an individual too. “I am happy to be working alongside an actor like AV (Avinesh Rekhi). We are again thankful to our viewers for loving our scenes together. Frankly speaking, in a country like India, arranged marriages prevail and women are mostly in a dilemma of spending their life under one room with a man who they do not know. This concept that is very relatable has worked for us.”
“Also the fact that the makers have not rushed with the story of Sarabjit and Meher and have shown they grow from being in an awkward position after marriage to being comfortable with each others’ presence. The two of them have mutual respect and this has been beautifully shown,” she adds.
Nimrat agrees that child artiste Kevina Tak who plays Param is actually the darling of the set. “She is a gifted child. She is so full of life and her honesty and innocence comes out so well on screen. The show is all about human emotions. Kevina is doing a fantastic job and I wish her more luck and power. We will surely see more of her as an actor. She has a long career ahead.”
On the next big honeymoon phase in the show, Nimrat Kaur states, “Yes, viewers will love the honeymoon track for sure. We are going abroad to Europe. This is what I can discuss, tell and inform you all. It will be a great track for sure and you will enjoy watching it as we do shooting it.”
Best of luck, Nimrat Kaur!!
