Mumbai, March 3 (IANS) Television actor Rohit Roy, currently seen as a Pakistani army officer in "Hitler Didi", prefers roles that push him as an actor, but says finding such appropriate roles is not easy.

"It's very important for me to do parts which push me as an actor. It is tough to find roles that can do justice to me and I can do justice to them," Rohit told IANS.

"Hitler Didi" is a departure from what he has played on the small screen so far.

"It is fantastic. It is different from the other works that I have done. On TV I have played happy roles. Here I am playing a Pakistani Major. There are several layers to him," said the actor who was last seen in "Sajda Tere Pyaar Mein".

Though the show, in which he played an antagonist, went off the air in June last year, Rohit said: "To me, it seems like two-three years. But I did 'Sajda Tere Pyaar Mein', which ended in June last year. I was not getting anything that I liked. Hopefully, I will not take another break," he said.

He found his footing in showbiz with Mahesh Bhatt-directed popular television show "Swabhimaan". Aired in 1995, it was co-scripted by Shobha De and Vinod Ranganath.

One thing that the 44-year-old really wants to do is hosting.

"One thing which I have been looking for is hosting. Now the whole pattern of hosting has changed. Now it's all about reading from the teleprompter. I would love to get back to doing that. I have always enjoyed hosting shows," he said.

Also seen in films such as "Dus Kahaniyaan", "Shootout At Lokhandwala" and "Delhii Heights", Rohit has no plans to quit one for the other -- he would like to be part of both films and television.

"A lot of actors say that they will quit TV for films. I feel the medium decides if you are required or not. For the last 15 years, I have been doing work in both the mediums," he said.
