Actor Supriya Pilgaonkar, who is most remembered for her TV show Tu Tu Main Main, has always done positive roles on-screen. But the actor now feels that she needs to break through her image and experiment.
The 45-year-old, who has been in the industry for a decade, has been seen in mature roles of a mother and mother-in-law.
“I grew up watching I love Lucy and Here’s Lucy and I was in awe of that character and wanted to play that... And I am at such age where I can play that but they are not being made. Like, I would love to play a negative role but nobody offers me one because of my image. It is very difficult to break through that,” Supriya said.
“I feel that a change is very much needed. It will be really welcomed. I feel that if I don’t do it whatever is offered to me with conviction, I will not be able to sustain. So, whatever change I am going to bring out can happen slowly,” she added.
Besides TV serials, Supriya is also a well known face in Marathi cinema and Bollywood. Though she hasn’t been on the big-screen for quite some time, she says she will soon make a comeback.
“They (films) are taking a back seat as of now unfortunately. I couldn’t do films in the last couple of years because of my show Sasural Genda Phool. But very soon I am going to take time out for movies because I miss doing different roles.”
