I feel I am more talented: Arshad
Mumbai: Actor Arshad Warsi, best known for his role as 'Circuit' in 'Munnabhai' series and 'Babban' in 'Ishqiya', says that despite having potential, he is not getting offers for good roles.
"Personally I have got way more than what I had asked for or desired. Professionally, I feel I am more talented and capable of doing better things. Sooner or later (offers for good roles) it will happen. It is just a matter of time. Longer the wait, the better it is. Which means I will be here for longer time," Arshad told reporters.
"I am not worried about whether I have got my due in the industry or not."
Arshad made his debut in Amitabh Bachchan's production company, ABCL's 'Tere Mere Sapne' in 1996. He went on to act in several films but got his due recognition with Rajkumar Hirani's 'Munnabhai MBBS' (2003) where he played a Sanjay Dutt's side kick.
His work in films like 'Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya', 'Salaam Namaste', 'Golmaal' series, 'Dhamaal' was appreciated but it was Vishal Bharadwaj's 'Ishqiya' that brought the focus back on his acting calibre.
Arshad admits that he wants more exciting work to come his way.
"I take whatever comes my way. I hear the script, if it excites me I do it.
And if it doesn`t then I don't do it. There are no rules. I have not made a list of roles I wish to do. I want more exciting work to come my way."
Arshad will be seen next in 'Jolly LLB', a satire on the judicial system. He would also be seen in political action-thriller 'Zilla Ghaziabad', 'Dedh Ishqiya', Ken Ghosh's 'Chambal Safari' and 'Joe B Carvalho' with Soha Ali Khan.
The actor had turned producer in 2010 with 'Hum Tum Aur Ghost'. The film, starring Arshad and Dia Mirza in the lead role, did not do well at the box office.
"I think I am a terrible producer. I am the worst producer one would have ever seen. I don`t know how to produce a film. I spend money over the top so much so that I end up losing money. I will take time and see and learn how to do it again. I will definitely produce films," he said.
