Simi Garewal: I'd love to act in films again; acting is my first love

Simi GarewalCiting reasons for her having stayed away from the big screen all these years, veteran actress Simi Garewal says she wants to act in films but feels she is a difficult person to cast.

Simi, who gave memorable performances in films like Do Badan, Karz, Siddhartha, Mera Naam Joker and others, would love to come back on the silver screen.

"I am a difficult person to cast. I don't know what roles filmmakers will be able to offer me. I would love to act in films again... acting is my first love. I have been getting offers but nothing that would interest me," she said.

Simi says there have been lot of changes in the way things

function today in the film industry.

"There are tremendous changes that have come in the film industry technology-wise, story telling, diverse films are made today, our films match international standards, there are roles and subjects for everyone, change in background score and music. I am enjoying watching films," she said last recently a press conference of Indian Film Festival of Melbourne awards.

Serving as a jury member for the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, Simi is all praise for the festival ambassador Vidya Balan.

"I think she was wonderful in The Dirty Picture... not many actors would have been able to do this film. She can do diverse films like The Dirty Picture, Kahaani etc," she said.
