Veteran actor-director Satish Kaushik said with films becoming more story-oriented, character actors are finally getting the chance to play lead parts.
The actor, who turned 63 on Saturday, believes every artist goes through a low phase in their career but one should never give up.
“Today filmmakers are giving lead role to character actors. Like in Badhaai Ho Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao are in the lead. In everybody’s career there comes a moment when there is slowdown but one has to have that conviction and belief in themselves,” Kaushik.
“Cinema is going through a great phase. Actors like us are getting lead and meaty roles to play. Today audiences are not just watching films for stars but are rather looking at stories,” he added.
