We are talking about Television actress Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia who is popularly known for playing the lead role in the television daily soap Chhoti Sardarni. In an interview with Hindustan Times, she revealed that she was roped in for one of the three lead roles in a Punjabi movie and Diljit Dosanjh had himself reached out to her on Instagram.
