Actor Sanjay Kapoor, who recently featured in film Mission Mangal opposite Vidya Balan is happy with the fact that he is getting to play the lead role at least in digital space. Recently, in an interview to a leading daily, the 53-year-old actor confessed that he was hoping for things to change post his film Luck By Chance (2009). However, things did not go as expected.
“I don’t know (what happened after Luck..). I was appreciated and everything, but for some reason (things didn’t change). Everyone told me ‘You should do fun roles, you were so good in it’ but it didn’t translate into work. I decided that whatever work I did - it was the reason I got into production too — it has to be something meaningful, I won’t do riff-raff. It’s not a question about the length of the role. Things did change, but you have to be patient and ready,” Sanjay said in a statement.
The actor who will be seen in a web series soon also mentioned that he is fortunate that people don’t have to pay for tickets to see me. He said, “I have got a history, and experience on my side. I did more than 40 films. I am next doing a big web show, which will be out next year, where I play the protagonist. It’s working for me. I am getting to play lead roles in the web space, and being part of ensemble cast in films. I am fortunate, that right now, we have this, where people don’t have to pay for tickets to see me. If the show is good, they watch me.”
Sanjay will be soon seen as his real-life niece Sonam Kapoor’s on-screen father in the upcoming film The Zoya Factor.
