Kirron envies hubby Anupam

NEW DELHI: SHE laments the lack of women-centric roles in Indian cinema these days and actor Kirron Kher says she envies her husband, actor Anupam Kher who gets the chance to play pivotal roles in many a serious film. The 55-year-old actor, who has acted in Bollywood films like Devdas and Dostana, is more than willing to be a part of serious cinema made by the new crop of directors like Neeraj Pandey, who made A Wednesday with Anupam.

"I want to work with the new directors, but the films being made are not centered around women. Serious cinema these days is testosterone-driven and men-oriented. I envy Anupam and other actors who get a chance to do such films with people like Neeraj Pandey," Kirron told PTI.

Kirron's wish list starts with Pathak and goes on to include Omkara director Vishal Bhardwaj and Homi Adajania, who directed Being Cyrus starring Saif Ali Khan. "I wish I could act in films like Dev D and A Wednesday. I want to do a black comedy with Homi Adajania and also want to work with Vishal Bhardwaj, Imtiaz Ali and Anurag Kashyap," Kirron said.

The actor, who has been seen in mainstream Bollywood cinema lately, has done some serious films like Khamosh Paani in Punjabi and Bariwali in Bengali, for which she won the National Film Award for Best Actress in 1999. She has tickled us with her funny dialogues in films like Om Shanti Om and Dostana, but Kirron says that comedy is something which happened to her by chance.

"I was a very dramatic actor, I strayed into comedy accidentally with Hum Tum. It is really tough acting in a comic role. You have to get the timing right. Sometimes I get my lines re-written to make it more effective," said Kirron.
