Actor Sandhya Mridul says female actors have started demanding good roles in films.

Actor Sandhya Mridul has been part of television and films from over a decade and she is very happy that female actors have now started demanding good roles and are getting it.

“There are more women who are demanding good roles and opportunities are being given to them. They are given space and people look forward to their acting.. Today there are more and more such women and we are hearing about them, because we are giving them a chance and they are giving impeccable performance. There are important characters being created in cinema, there is a parallel wave which is going on and actresses are playing a big role in that,” says Mridul, who has been part of films such as Saathiya(2002), Force (201!) and Angry Indian Goddesses(2015).

However, the actor says there are many actors who just want to pose pretty.

“There are actresses who just want to look beautiful but I can’t judge them on it. Then there are people who come only to act and some want best of both worlds. It is not right to sit at one place and comment on anyone,” says the actor.

The actor started her acting career with television shows such as Swaabhimaan and Koshish before moving on to films. However, she never had any inhibitions about returning to the small screen.

“Television made me everything that I am. There is no way I would have any inhibitions about going back to television. If you give me content that is interesting, I will be back, you give me a part which challenges, I will come back. I see no reason why I should not be back on the small screen but I don’t want to be back for the sake of it,” she says.
