      I am sick and tired of Indian actresses always jumping in bed with white males just to get noticed.
      They are all sellouts.

    Glad she will be back on tv soon. I can’t wait to see her on the show.

  5. Can’t wait to tune in on September 23rd for the premiere of The Blacklist and Parminder Nagra is a great addition to the cast. So proud of her.

    It’s too bad Alcatraz went nowhere – her character was poised to become a genuinely intriguing part of that particular puzzle, but it’s definitely a bonus for The Blacklist. Her casting makes it even more of a must-see show (which it became after I saw the awesome pilot).
