New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) After five years in the industry, Bollywood actor Ranvir Shorey feels like a kid in a toy store, spoilt by the sheer variety of roles offered to him.

'Comedy comes easily to me. However, I enjoy doing different kinds of roles and by god's grace I am getting an opportunity to do so. Believe me, it feels great!' Shorey told IANS on phone from Mumbai.

'It feels as if I am a kid in a toy store, who has loads of preferences. What could be more satisfying for an actor than having the liberty to select and do the work of his choice,' he said.

Ranvir started his career as an assistant director on the small screen and later worked as a director and VJ for music channel V.

Ranbir's stint in Bollywood started with 'Ek Chotisi Love Story'. His acting was largely appreciated in films like 'Mixed Doubles', 'Pyaar Ke Side Effects' and 'Khosla Ka Ghosla!' to name a few.

Commenting on how having been behind the camera helps him as an actor, he said: 'I think, in about one-third of my career so far, I have been involved in direction for Channel V.'

'Although, more than being a director, the work I did as an assistant director helps me more as an actor. It makes it easier for me to understand the director's vision and then approach the character.'

Last year, low budget films like 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.' and 'Bheja Fry', which starred him, rang the box office collections while the biggie 'Aaja Nachle' couldn't earn him much acclaim.

And he is all praise for low budget films.

'I am glad that I have been associated with small budget movies. I hope to continue doing more of them in the future because all the groundbreaking work happens there.'

Asked about his plans of going global, he quipped: 'I have no Hollywood aspirations. I just want to finish my work and reach home as soon as possible. I am a homesick person.'

Apart from his forthcoming film 'Mithya' where Ranbir is playing the role of a struggling actor, he will wow the audiences in 'I am 24', 'Singh Is King', 'Ugly Aur Pagli' and 'Chandni Chowk To China'.
