An English film and television actress Parminder Nagra is best known for playing Jess in Bend It Like Beckham and Dr. Neela Rasgotra in the medical drama ER. She also had a role as Meera Malik in The Blacklist. All her work gained her an estimated net worth of $10 million. Her road to success is very interesting story.
How Did Parminder Nagra Get So Rich?
Parminder Nagra was born on 5 October 1975 in Leicester, United Kingdom to parents who emigrated from the Punjab, India, in the 1960s, as the eldest of four children. In 1994, she was a chorus member in the musical Nimai but luckily she was switched from the chorus to replace the lead actress. She started her career in theatre. Her film career came with comedy-drama Bend It Like Beckham.
Parminder dated Irish actor Kieran Creggan for five years and lived with him in a flat in Kennington. Than she dated photographer James Stenson and married him after a seven year relationship in 2009. Few months later, she gave birth to their son Kai. In 2012, Parminder had filed for divorce, which was finalized more than one year later.
Her ex-husband James Stenson sued her, claiming she was hiding her acting money from several roles to prevent him getting any of it. But he didn’t succeed and Parminder got her income, residuals and royalties and also their California property, which is worth over $700 thousand, their UK home, which is worth $1.5 million, and profits from the sale of a rental property. Oh yes, and also the 3 of the couple’s 4 cars.
