Actor Aman Verma, who returned to the small screen with negative roles with shows like Naa Aana Is Des Laado and Chhoti Bahu, says he prefers playing the bad man, as he is not ready to play a father or a grandfather on TV. “In today’s shows, 18-year-old girls are seen doing roles of married women with children. Then, there are women in the age group of 35 to 40 portraying grandmothers and women in their 50s playing great grandmothers,” says Verma.
“The same case is with guys as well. I keep myself really fit, so I just look a few years older to them (hero). I don’t think I am mentally ready to play their father yet,” adds the 40-year-old.
Hence, he has no problems playing a negative part. “For me, if I need to get into a story line, I would rather get into a negative role and change the story with my performance than play a father or a grandfather. This is really welcome to me,” he says.
