Mumbai, Dec 9 Actor Manoj Bajpai, known for his versatility, has portrayed a character inspired by myhtological demon king Raavan in his next film 'Lanka'. But he says he does not believe in the word 'villain'.

'I don't do villainous or positive roles. I do human being roles. They are positive and negative both. If you say that I do only villain roles then your research is wrong,' Manoj told reporters here.

Manoj has played negative roles in films like 'Aks', 'Road', 'Raajneeti' and 'Aarakshan', but maintains that his characters can't be called villains.

'Shool' was not villain's role, 'Zubeidaa' was not villain's role, and 'Lanka' has me in role with grey shades. The character is like any human being in the society, like you or like me. We all have positive and negative aspects. So they can't be called villains,' added the actor, whose best remembered role is that of underworld don Bhiku Mhatre in 'Satya'.

The 42-year-old admits he has a few negative aspects in his personal life.

'I am very ambitious and I leave a lot of things for my work. Sometimes I lie and sometimes I want to earn a lot of money, sometimes I feel like earning a lot of money without doing much work. So there are many bad things inside me that I don't want to share with you,' said the actor here at a celebration party held for 'Lanka'.

Directed by Maqbool Khan, 'Lanka' also stars Arjan Bajwa and Twinkle Bajpai. The film released Friday.

His next films include 'Chittagong', 'Gangs Of Wasseypur', and 'The Whisperers'.
