Parminder Nagra Quotes / Quotations

And of course in America you've got American football and baseball and all those other ball games, soccer has become a little niche that the women have kind of filled.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra


At times those skills were really hard to do because not only was I having to contend with the camera, but I was having to learn these new skills and the ball was always kind of doing what you didn't want it to do. So it got a little bit frustrating at times but we got there.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra


But I think it's also hard to get into soccer here. I think purely on a time level on television as well because of the ad breaks. It's something to do with that as well. You can't show a complete soccer match here. Which I kind of find a bit of an odd thing.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra


I'm a British intern going in. I'm hoping that John will just kind of tackle it from who this person is and what she's about rather than trying to go in on her culture. We need to move a step forward than that.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra


In London there was an article about all these girls bending it like Beckham, and in India there's this big wave of girls playing football. Wow! I can't believe a movie's done this!
Quotation of Parminder Nagra


In terms of soccer, it wasn't really a thing that girls did. In England it more kind of Net Ball and Hockey and stuff like that in athletics. It's to each their own, really.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra


My father in the film - which we probably haven't seen in previous movies, and in British Asian movies you could probably count on one hand - he says exactly why, actually why he's frightened for his daughter. He came to this country, England, and had a bit of a crappy time.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra


No, my parents were born in India.
Quotation of Parminder Nagra

Quotation of Parminder Nagra
