Iím not part of the crowd...
Fragile and over-sensitive - this is how Nirma describes herself. ďSo handle me with care,Ē she chuckles.
Nirma statrted her career with TV plays. Her first play was Ranjish that won wide acclaim by the viewers. Soon after she got offers for films. Bazigar was her debut, after that she worked in Urdu and Punjabi films.
She has been out of scene for almost one year. But, certainly, not without reasons.
Why are you not signing films any more?
I was fed up with run-of-the-mill stories. I donít like monotony. I am always in search of innovation. Pakistani cinema is just churning out movies in which quality is missing. So I thought I should take a break. I am waiting for good scripts. I have very good Bollywood projects lined up and I am working on them nowadays.
Have you signed any Bollywood flick?
I went to India a couple of months ago to inaugurate an exhibition ĎBride and Groomí arranged by ITE group. I inaugurated the exhibition with an Indian Chief Minister. I felt myself honoured to represent my country. It was there that I got my offers with Indian ace directors like Subhash Ghai and Ram Gopal Varma. I have their projects in the pipeline. I am reading the scripts of the movies. Here I would like to mention one thing I learn from the experiences of my seniors. In the past, a couple of Lollywood actresses like Zeba Bakhtiar and Salma Agha and recently Meera worked in the Bollywood films.
So far as I am concerned, I will work in quality movies.
Thatís why I am reading the scripts. Most probably by this January I will finalise these films. One thing is clear that I will not work in any controversial movie or picturise controversial scenes.

What life has been to you?

Of course I am a happy-go-person. If you ask my friends about my best quality, they would say Nirma giggles a lot.
