Bollywood actress Dolly Ahluwalia who has been appreciated for her roles in films like "Vicky Donor" and "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana", says that there are fewer roles for senior female artists nowadays.

The actress said that earlier roles for women used to be much stronger, but not anymore.

"There are not many roles for senior artists (currently) and the significance of mother in present films is lost. The mothers of the 1960s used to play central characters but now we are losing that," she told IANS.

However Dolly calls this as a phase that will change with time.

"I will not count this change as wrong thing but it is a phase which one is travelling through. It will keep changing," she added.

The actress will be next seen in "Bajatey Raho". Directed by Shashant A. Shah, the film also features Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Tusshar Kapoor, Vishakha Singh and Ravi Kissen.

"I am playing one of the leads in the film and it was very enjoyable, refreshing and creative. It was entirely a different kind of film from what I have done earlier," she said.

The actress has so far been seen in comic roles only. However she said that this has not been a conscious decision.

"Being an actor I enjoy everything. Surprisingly the kind of roles I did are of comedy. But this film is very different zone. I would love to do a serious film role as well," she said.

The actress is also a costume designer and said that she likes balancing this with acting.

"I have balanced it till date. Initially I was given chances to be in films, but due to technical reasons, I could not shoot. I was little switched off as my insights said that I had limited years. There was no point waiting so I took up costume designing," she said.
