Mumbai, Oct 7 : From a wicked Velji in "Sir" to a funny Baburao Ganpatrao Apte in "Hera Pheri", Paresh Rawal has dabbled with a variety of roles in his career spanning over two decades. But he is still discontented and strives for meaty roles.
"For me, a role is a role. I don't see it as a protagonist or an antagonist. Even if I am not in the lead role, but if I have a good role, I do it with honesty," Paresh told IANS in an interview.
"As an actor I am very hungry. Give me a good and meaty role and I am on for it. I like to do roles that I enjoy and involves some sort of a challenge. Anything that can be done easily, I don't enjoy doing it. The only nice thing about it (easily doable jobs) that you get money," he added.
Recently, he played an atheist in Umesh Shukla's "Oh My God", an adaptation of his Gujarati play.
