Actor Aman Verma, who returned to the small screen with negative roles with shows like "Na Aana Is Desh Laado" and "Chhoti Bahu", says he prefers playing the bad man as he is not ready to play a father or a grandfather on TV.

"In today's shows, 18-year-old girls are seen doing roles of married women with children. Then there are women in age group of 35 to 40 portraying grandmothers and women in their 50s playing great grandmothers," said Aman.

"The same case is with guys as well. I keep myself really fit, so I just look a few years older to them (hero). I don't think I am mentally ready to play their father yet," added the 40-year-old.

Hence, he has no problems playing a negative part.

"For me, if I need to get into a story line, I would rather get into a negative role and change the story with my performance than play a father or a grandfather. This is really welcome to me," he said.

Aman will soon host a new season of reality show "Khullja Sim Sim", to be aired on BIG Magic.

    He must be wanting to Play Arnav Singh Raizada (Barun Sobti)... lol
    At 40, does he expect to play the 20s something hero?
    A true actor should look at how convincing he can be (or he can become) to look like the part, irrespective of the age\length of the character.

    That is not right for an actor to say. Take a cue from actors like Ronit Roy and Ram Kapoor who dont have ant reservations if the role is interesting.Even Gurmeet,who is not even 29 and one of the top actors,is playing the role of father so convincingly. That should be the spirit if you are a true actor.

    erm... wasn't a dudes father in NAIDL?! is KSBKBT also he played a father :p

    I think what he really means is he doesn't want to take up a full fledged father of the lead sort of role... he is happy with negative cameos

    then he is not an Actor and as amazing as I had tought him to be cos every good, amazing and fantastic Actor should be ready and willing to play any type of roles.


    sorry Aman Verma I think u need to learn a thing or two from Ronit Bose Roy and every other Actors out there who don't care abt what roles they play nor give a damn abt who's Father they get to be on TV.
