Kiran Sippy says she is the biggest fan of her husband Ramesh Sippy who gave "Sholay" to Bollywood and "Buniyaad" to television. She tries to support him as much as she can.

"I have been with him through everything which he has done," Kiran told IANS in an interview.

"He made 'Sholay', which was the biggest in films and 'Buniyaad', which was the biggest in TV. It is a proud feeling. I am totally proud of him. I am his biggest fan," added the actress who played an important role in "Buniyaad".

Sippy directed close to a dozen films starting from his 1971 debut venture "Andaz" to "Seeta Aur Geeta", "Shaan", "Shakti" and "Saagar". The actress said that it is tough for her to decide which of them is her favourite.

"It is tough for me to say. When I see 'Shakti', I love it. I love 'Shaan' for its techno-savvy look. It still looks modern. Every film of his has been different. It has never been the same genre. There is no comparison," she said.

Kiran has not been seen on screen for a while now.

"I am not looking for a particular role. But people do approach me from time to time. If I like the role, which means in substance and not the length, I will take it up," she said.

"All the roles that I have done so far, have done well and my role has been noticed. I think I am a little choosy about what I do," added the actress who has been a part of films like "Jab We Met", "Khosla Ka Ghosla" and "Fashion".

She feels there are hardly any roles for actresses her age.

"In our film industry, we don't have roles for people my age. We have to play that typical 'ma' and 'bhabhi' characters. But sometimes within those roles you get something good," she said.

Her husband's production "Buniyaad" is currently being telecast on Doordarshan. Kiran doesn't feel that a serial like "Buniyaad" can ever lose its relevance.

"Buniyaad is a period drama. It has no time relevance as it is that period which you are portraying. It was set in 1947. The look will never change. It will be what it was," she said.

Now serials do not have longevity. Many serials start and end within a few months.

Kiran said: "There are too many channels. People have too many options. If they don't like even one episode (in a show) they switch the channel," she said.

Also, a similarity in subjects reflects in the audience getting bored with the shows.

"All the serials are similar with same subjects. The ones that were different did well as long as they were different. Even serials today, if they come up with something fresh and different, people will like it," she said.
