Sharib Hashmi: Good roles certainly matter, but money also matters | Bollywood

For actor Sharib Hashmi, playing a good role in a small film is better than a boring small role in a big movie anytime. It’s not the screen time but the role that matters to him.

“Main zaroor woh little karunga movie, lekin woh character karne ki meri ichha bhi honi chahiye. I don’t have to be visible in every picture, I don’t care. The role is very important. Nor is it necessary that just because the role is meaty I do it, it should be a complete package,” he says.

The actor, who has appeared on popular web shows such as The man of the family franchise, Scam 1992, Asur among others, is now ready to share the screen with Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan in Vikram Veda. It makes one wonder, does he sometimes make big movies for the money he makes, so he can make smaller but meaningful movies where the money isn’t a lot? Actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui have admitted to us in the past that they do.

Hashmi laughs and says, “I can’t divide things like that. Nawaz sir is in a different league, I haven’t reached that position yet where I can watch such things. Mine is based on how badly I want to play a role, whether it’s mainstream or indie. In fact, there’s less money in big movies…every movie has its own budget, so compensation is high in some places, low in others, you have to decide which one you want to do. If it’s a very good character but the money paid is less, I do it. Small or big movie doesn’t matter.

Still, the 46-year-old says, “paisa bahaut important hai”. The actor, although happy to be able to choose what he wants to do now, also realizes that he will make mistakes, “Galti toh har kisi se hoti hai, aisa nahi ki main nahi karunga. But he is also important that the films I make also get a proper release, I understand that now.
