His role as 'Circuit' in
fetched Arshad Warsi accolades, but not good movie offers. The actor rues that he has been typecast and doesn't get offers that could do justice to his acting skills.
" Mujhe aacche role milte nahi hai (I don't get good roles)," Warsi confessed at a press conference here Thursday at the Big Cinemas. "All the movies that I am being offered, 99 percent of them are bad scripts. That leaves me with one percent chance of getting a good movie," he added.
The actor will be seen as a small time thief Babban in Ishqiya. Directed by Abhishek Chaubhey and produced by Vishal Bharadwaj, the film is set in a small town in Uttar Pradesh and also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Vidya Balan.
Arshad jokingly said that no other actor in the industry would have done the role better than him. He also pointed out that the character he is playing in the movie is a far cry from the way he is in his personal life.
"There is a huge difference between Babban and me. In real life, I am very quiet and boring, unlike him who is very rustic and lively."
"Despite this, I didn't have any difficulty in portraying this character. Thanks to the director who was clear about this character and I did my homework accordingly."
Ishqiya is releasing Jan 29.
