I am a hungry actor: Paresh Rawal

Mumbai: 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 reporters 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.
