Hema Malini has had a wonderful career having featured in more than 150 films. However the actress feels that as she’s gotten older, offers for great roles are now rather scarce.
Comparing the Indian Film Industry to other film industries from around the world,��NDTV��reported Malini explaining, “Internationally, such beautiful films are made with elderly actresses but that doesn’t happen here. They don’t want to invest money because filmmaking is too expensive, so why would they risk it with me? That’s the problem. No one comes to me with good roles.”
She went on to emphasise, “Meryl Streep is doing fantastic work. She is of my age. I can also do so many things but I need opportunities for that.”
Though all is not lost for the actress, where she will be seen in��Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Shimla Mirchi’. Talking about the film, Malini went onto say, “It is a sweet comedy and I had fun doing the film. I say yes when interesting roles come up and I thought that this part was really nice. So I agreed to be a part of it.”
The film will also star��Rajkummar Rao and Rakul Preet Singh.
