Anti Nimzo Indian response

I enjoy playing the Nimzo Indian as black 1.d4, Nf6 2. c4, e6 3. Nc3, Bb4.

However I have found that most players tend to continue with 3. Nf3.

I am playing around with the idea with responding with c5 pawn push. What does everyone think? Any better ideas?

The line would be as follows: 1. d4, Nf6 2. c4, e6 3. Nf3, c5.

Besides the classic ...d5, QID, Bogo (Nb4+) and Benoni (c5) are ok. Even ...a6 is tricky.
