“There aren’t enough good scripts. Besides, I am lazy! There you finally got the honest truth out of me! I did ‘Tum Milo Toh Sahi’ with Nana Patekar because I loved the script. I honestly need good scripts and directors. I just hope it happens soon,” Dimple, 52, told IANS.
She perks up while talking about her new release “Tum Milo Toh Sahi” in which she plays a Parsi woman who falls in love at the fag end of her life.
“‘Bahut pyar se Kabir Sadanand ne film banaaya hai’. It was very interesting, and was done with a lot of love. Every scene is a labour of love. This is a film I’m very proud of. I loved my role. And so what if the director Kabir Sadanand made me look older on screen than I look in real? That’s how I saw my character.”
Dimple says she enjoyed working with Nana Patekar in “Tum Milo Toh Sahi”.
“The last time we worked together was ‘Krantiveer’. It was wonderful meeting up with him again. It’s great working with Nana. When he’s around on camera, I don’t have to think about anything. He does all the thinking.
“We met after so many years. The reason I haven’t kept in touch with colleagues is because I don’t like imposing my attention on anyone,” she said.
Asked the secret behind her good looks, she said: “If you insist on knowing why I look younger than my age, then I’ll tell you. It’s poker.
“Let me think of the formula. I sleep at 4 p.m. and get up at 2 a.m. No, I’m just kidding. I’ve no clue as to why I look the way I am.”
“People feel I look younger than my age. I don’t feel that way. I think all my contemporaries are glowing these days. If you still insist I look younger than my contemporaries, then it could be because I play poker, the others don’t. That’s the secret.
“I don’t know how you expect me to talk about myself. It’s so vain and self-obsessed. I can’t be like that. And you should really respect me for that. For being the person that I am,” she said.
