She seductively stares at you from the driver's seat. Without uttering a word, she licks the chocolate off her fingers convincing you to try some.

Actor Nimrat Kaur's good looks have contributed in the success of the latest Cadbury Dairy Milk-Silk commercial.

"I was actually asked to tone down the licking and looks in the ad," says Nimrat Kaur with a chuckle, who is slowly becoming someone to look out for in Bollywood.

After playing the female lead in the Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer The Lunchbox, she was praised by critics for her performance.

Filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted about the film, "Nimrat Kaur is the soul of LUNCHBOX...projecting marital angst...urban depression and longing for love like a legend actor."

Nimrat Kaur also received a terrific introduction at Semaine De La Critique (The International Critics Week) at Cannes this May.

"I am flattered by these reactions. I was introduced as the modern day Charulata, Sharmila Tagore and Madhubala," says the 31-year old, tucking into a chicken sandwich at a bistro in Delhi's Hauz Khas Village.

This was her second consecutive outing at Cannes, the earlier one being Vasan Bala's Peddlers (2012).

In The Lunchbox, her first major role, Nimrat Kaur portrays the role of a doting housewife (Ila) who is trying to steal her husband's attention by packing tasty meals for lunch. One day his tiffin mistakenly gets delivered to someone else. Realising the error, she packs in an apology note in the lunchbox next day and pours out her frustrations as a housewife to the perfect stranger.

Nimrat Kaur admits it was the script that excited her. "I did not know Nawaz and Irrfan would be in the film. After reading the script I wanted to be in the film, no matter what," she says.
