Nimrat Kaur, who became popular with Ritesh Batra directorial "The Lunchbox" in 2013, turns 33 on Friday, 13 March.

She began her career as a model and theatre artist and became a familiar face after her Cadbury Dairy Milk Silk commercial "Kiss me, close your eyes, kiss me" was released.

She made her Bollywood debut with the war drama "Yahaan" in 2005, in which she did the role of a journalist.

However, Nimrat was recognised for her character Ila in "The Lunchbox", after which she rose to fame and got the chance to play an ISI agent Tasneem Qureshi in Hollywood serial "Homeland".
