Actor Deepak Dobriyal, who is fondly remembered as pappiji
from "Tanu Weds Manu" franchise, says he wants for an image change and is
looking for "serious scripts".
Asked if he wants to change his image by portraying serious characters on screen, Deepak told IANS here: "Yes, because I they (filmmakers) have tied to one image ... Comic roles keep coming. I don't want to do it deliberately. But this is the requirement of the films. I am looking for serious scripts."
Deepak has played supporting roles in films like "Tanu Weds Manu", "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" and "Hindi Medium".
But does he feel like an under-utilised talent in Bollywood ?
"No. I'm getting good and likeable work. I'm happy," he added.
Deepak was here to promote his forthcoming film "Kaalakaandi" starring Saif Ali Khan, which is slated to release on Friday.
