Gul Panag, mostly seen in off-beat films, feels that the scripts of Hindi movies lack story and structure.

The former Miss India started her acting journey with critically acclaimed off-beat film "Dhoop", based on a true story, and was appreciated for her work in films like "Dor", "Manorama Six Feet Under", and "Turning 30".

The actress, not seen in Hindi movies for a while, launched Atulya Mahajan's book "Amreeka Desi".

When asked whether the book could provide a good plot for a movie, she said: "I don't know because Hindi movies don't normally have good plots."

"I do hope there are people out there who understand that films need to have a beginning, an end and a story, which doesn't seem to be the case, unfortunately," added the 34-year-old.

Having said that, Gul feels content-wise "Amreeka Desi" is apt for film adaptation.

"So, if there were any takers who really want to make a film that was tight, that had an interesting structure, which was telling a compelling story, I think they would buy the rights to this book. I think it has the potential to make a good film," Gul said.

She will soon be seen in Punjabi film "Sarsa".

    Gul, I liked your work especially in Dor, but it is unfair to say that hindi movies lack plot in general. These days we have had many tightly scripted films backed by strong plots.
