Sharing screen with Amitabh in Aladin didn't satisfy me: Mita Vasisht
Actress Mita Vasisht, who is returning to the big screen after about a year with slice-of-life film Gangoobai, says she looks for quality cinema rather than doing bit roles in big budget projects.
Mita, 45, who was last seen playing Freida Pinto's mother in British-Indian film Trishna, is happy with her role in Gangoobai. Produced by National Film Development Corporation of India (NFDC), the film released yesterday.
"I believe in quality rather than quantity. At this age, I look for good scripts rather than the starcast. Now, you have films apart from the mainstream but five years ago the scene was completely different. In 2009, I did a film called Aladin and I regret doing it. I shared the screen with Mr Bachchan but that didn't give me satisfaction of being an actor," Mita told .
In debutant Priya Krishnaswam's film, Mita essays the character of a former supermodel, who now runs a fashion house in the city.
"It's a very different character and I play one of the leads apart from the titular character in the film. It's a very gentle character but it helps the story to proceed further," she said.
The film revolves around a maid and is a sentimental portrayal of her desire to own a Gara saree. The lead has been played by Sarita Joshi of Ba Bahoo Aur Baby fame.
