I won't play a mother again: Vidya Malvade

entertainment Updated: Oct 14, 2008 17:12 IST

Chak De! girl Vidya Malvade, who to everyone's surprise played Minissha Lamba's mother in Kidnap, says she won't play a mom again.

"I have played a mother's role in Kidnap, (but) that doesn't mean I will be doing these types of roles again. I won't accept an offer from any producer or director if he comes to me with a mother's role," Vidya told IANS.

Kidnap was offered to Vidya before the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Chak De! India, in which she played the captain of a women's hockey team.

"Kidnap came to me when I had nothing on hand and I accepted it as it was an interesting role. Moreover, what excited me was that I was offered a role opposite Sanjay Dutt whom I have known for a long time and respect a lot," Vidya said.

Directed by Sanjay Gadhvi of Dhoom fame, the film that released last week was panned by most critics.

Vidya said she was disappointed to see many of her scenes being edited out.

"After seeing this movie, I came to know how important editing is. Many of my scenes that I was looking forward to were edited out and it surprised me. But I think it depends on the director and the editor and they have done what was best for the film."

Although Vidya has decided not to play a mother's role again, she doesn't regret doing Kidnap.

"I played a character. As an actor we should think of the character rather than our image and other things. At that time it was the best offer; so I accepted it. I don't repent playing the character as long as the film is good and successful," said Vidya.

"As I don't belong to a film family, I don't have many options. I have to be content with what I get," said the model- turned actress who debuted in 2003 with Inteha.

"Chak De gave me recognition and I am happy that people know me now. Now I want to be a complete actress playing diverse roles. I don't want to stick to a particular image. I want to move on," she quipped.

The actress currently has three films in her kitty. In Tum Milo To Sahi, she plays Suniel Shetty's wife. Directed by Kabir Sadanand, the film also stars Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia.

"I also have an interesting part in Striker, which revolves around a family and I am part of that family," said Vidya, not wanting to reveal anything more.

Striker is being directed by Chandan Arora and also stars Siddharth of Rang De Basanti fame.

The third film she is doing is a comedy titled "King Con". "It's a fun film where I play the part of a car racer."

Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, King Con will also feature Govinda, Rimii Sen and Celina Jaitley.
