Actress-director Revathi has never shied away from playing characters of her age, but she feels there is a dearth of roles revolving around life of an elderly woman and emphasised on a need to break out from the mould of stereotypical presentation.
“The kind of films I get is a little boring because I feel its okay to play my age and that’s not an issue. But it’s just that playing my age doesn’t mean just being a mother, lawyer or a doctor. There is no characterisation. A very few writers write characters that suits a 35 or 45 plus woman,” Revathi, 48, told.
The ‘Love’ actress has carved a niche for herself in Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam industries by performing varied roles. She also shared that she is looking for a challenging role. “As an actor, I’m a little bored with the roles I’m getting. It doesn’t challenge me.
I’m not interested in numbers. I want to do quality work and feel happy about it. For my age, none of the language writers have much to offer. That’s why I’m being very slow and doing just one film in two years,” said Revathi.
