Aruna Irani is happy that her role of a grandmother on her current television show Sanskar is suitable for her age. The actress is content to dabble on the small screen for the time being and blames her absence on the big screen on the paucity of good roles etched out for ‘older’ actresses.
The senior actress says, “Nowadays roles are not written for actresses like us. In almost all new films, you will hardly get to see any strong roles for experienced actors. Jaya Bachchan too was offered a good role nearly a decade ago in Kabhi Khushi Khabi Gham but post that she barely did any work.”
She also feels that doing small but significant roles is more important to her than being associated with trivial roles in big banner films. “I don’t want to be part of a project, where if my role is chopped off it will not hamper the storyline. It’s fine if I don’t do Bollywood for a while.”
If given a chance, Aruna however would love to work in a Rajkumar Hirani film. The actress states she wants to produce a film in the future as well.
