Bollywood actor Imran Khan says he is not keen on acting in Hollywood films as not many good roles are written for Indian actors there. The actor has dubbed for Hollywood’s animated movie Rio 2.
“I absolutely have no interest in working in Hollywood. I think you (Indian actors) get to be the nurse, someone who repairs computer or hero’s roommate, etc. I think they (Hollywood filmmakers) don’t write good roles for Indians,” he said.
However celebrities like Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and megastar Amitabh Bachchan have no issues about playing small roles in a big industry.
“Every actor will make a choice that is correct for them. The kind of roles that are offered to Indian actors are not very interesting. With no disrespect to anyone I think one gets to do a glorified special appearance. So no interest, I am very happy to work in India,” Khan added.
When asked what he would decide if he was offered a decent role in Hollywood, the actor replied; “As an actor if there is a very exciting role, I would be very happy to do it. But my observation, as I said earlier, is that those roles don’t come to Indians. They come to us when they need to sell their film in Hindi.”
Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha lent their voice for Rio 2, a Hollywood animated film in Hindi version. The film is set to hit theaters on April 11.
“It was a little odd because normally when you are dubbing, you are seeing your own face. You have to match it to the timing. The first day I had to guess when to move my lips and when to speak so it matches correctly,” Imran added.
