    Another Pakistani actress eyeing Bollywood

    [Interview by Sachin Gogoi]
    Monday, August 29, 2005
    On the footsteps of Meera, another Pakistani actress Nirma is keen on trying her luck in Bollywood.

    Nirma, who has acted in 35-40 films as well as television serials in her country, says she wants to explore possibilities in the Indian showbiz industry.

    "I have been talking to a few people, but nothing has come up yet. I am being choosy about my work. I do not want to get into Bollywood and do anything and everything," Nirma told IANS in an interview.
    The actress' hit films include "Laaj", "Shararat", "Qarz" and "Behram Daku". She is also a known face on the small screen and in music videos in Pakistan.
    Nirma agrees that Pakistani cine stars are getting more interested in the Indian film industry.
    "The Indian film industry is far bigger than what we have in Pakistan. It's true that more and more Pakistani artists wish to work in Indian films today," she said.
    "It is a natural urge for people to go to a bigger industry. Even many Indian artists wish to go to Hollywood."
    While her compatriot Meera attracted much media attention for her bold performance in the Indian film "Nazar", Nirma says she would like to do some "serious work" in Bollywood.
    "I would like to do some serious acting in Bollywood. I would have loved to do Rani Mukherjee's role in 'Black'," she said.
    Though a good role is important for her, Nirma says she is not fussy about directors.
    "There are a number of Indian directors who are extremely talented. I can't point out one as my favorite. I am ready to work with anyone who gives me a good role," she says.
