Nimrat Kaur received praise from fans and critics alike for her impeccable performance in Dasvi. But it seems that it has not always been smooth sailing for the actress when it came to her career. Nimrat recently opened up about a period in her life when she experienced a lot of professional heartache and didn't actually know whether her next paycheque would arrive.

Nimrat discussed her professional journey during an interview with RJ Siddharth Kanan. She said, “Right in the beginning of my career, I did 80 auditions before I hacked my first ad—and that is a lot of heartbreak.”

Nimrat claimed that she had become worn out from wearing makeup and a number of screen tests. She explained, “It was at that time, when you just needed to hack something, you’re standing in lines and difficult conditions, you’ve not eaten, you don’t know when you’re going to earn your next paycheque. I could make it rosy and say oh I stuck it out, but those days were tricky, and every day was an uphill climb. Whenever someone told me to come home, I didn’t want to go—even though there are days that I wanted to leave as well.”

Nimrat also highlighted that the worst answer for an actor, probably even worse than rejection, is total silence. It was like a "break-up without a text," as she put it. She claimed that she chooses not to call the filmmakers to follow up.

She continued by saying that although she was a part of a huge movie with a major celebrity, it never got off the ground. When the project became shelved, it wounded her heart. She said that one of the reasons that the film did not get made was probably due to the fact that it’s foundation was ‘questionable’. She added that initially, she believed she was the cause of things not working out.
