Aruna and her ‘itch of act­ing’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

She may not be seen very fre­quently on the sil­ver screen, but Bol­ly­wood ac­tor Aruna Irani (right) says that hasn’t less­ened her thirst for good roles or made her com­pla­cent.

“No artist is ever sat­is­fied. They want to keep work­ing and by the grace of God, I have got a va­ri­ety of roles. That ‘itch of act­ing’ is still there. The need to have a good role re­mains till the last breath,” says Irani, who was last seen in 2010 movie, Khatta Meetha.

The 63-year-old started work­ing in tele­vi­sion shows such as Dekha Ek Khwaab and Main Lak­shmi Tere Aan­gan Ki, and is glad that the film in­dus­try only fo­cuses on tal­ent.

“The best thing about our in­dus­try is that no­body asks you about your aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tion. If you have tal­ent in act­ing or singing, you can jump on board. No­body will de­mand your de­gree and judge you based on how much you have achieved in school or col­lege. Only tal­ent is ap­pre­ci­ated,” says Irani, who re­cently signed a pro­ject with film­maker Sub­hash Singh.
