Roles should be created for me: Om Puri
The 60-year-old actor, who has two National awards to his credit, said that he too wants to play lead roles like the superstars.
"There are hardly any roles written for a veteran actor like me. But roles are written especially for Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan and I have remained a character actor. I should get to play the lead in films," Puri told media.
Puri, who has starred in critically acclaimed films like `Aakrosh`, `Ardh Satya` and `Mirch Masala`, also said that the Hindi film industry lacks variety in filmmaking and makes the same song-and-dance movies, thus actors like him have limited scope.
