Actor Shraddha Kapoor, who is half Maharashtrian and half Punjabi, hopes Marathi cinema gets more power with more films like Lai Bhaari.

"It's great that a film like Lai Bhaari is doing so well. So more power to Marathi cinema. I have not got any offers for Marathi films. But I never say never. I am greedy for a great opportunity," said Shraddha.

Shraddha, whose father Shakti Kapoor is a Punjabi and mother Shivangi Kolhapure, a Maharashtrian, can't speak Punjabi. But she is fluent in Marathi.

She is keen to watch Lai Bhaari, which marked Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh's foray in to Marathi cinema. It was lauded upon its release.

"I really want to see Lai Bhaari. Riteish showed me the promo and I went completely nuts looking at it. I told him, 'This is one of the best promos I have ever seen and I dying to want to watch the film'."
