Mumbai: Actress Shraddha Kapoor, who is half Maharashtrian and half Punjabi, hopes Marathi cinema gets more power with more films like ‘Lai Bhaari’.

"It`s great that a film like `Lai Bhaari` is doing so well. So more power to Marathi cinema. I have not got any offers for Marathi films. But I never say never. I am greedy for a great opportunity," Shraddha said.

Shraddha, whose father Shakti Kapoor is a Punjabi and mother Shivangi Kolhapure a Maharashtrian, can`t speak Punjabi. But she is fluent in Marathi.

She is keen to watch ‘Lai Bhaari’, which marked Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh`s foray in to Marathi cinema. It was lauded upon its release.

"I really want to see `Lai Bhaari`. Riteish showed me the promo and I went completely nuts looking at it. I told him, `This is one of the best promos I have ever seen and I dying to want to watch the film`."
