Panaji: Actor Vindu Dara Singh says he is happy doing small roles in movies because he feels they do have an impact on the audience and are not useless.
The 48-year-old son of wrestler-turned-actor Dara Singh has worked in movies like 'Kambakkht Ishq', 'Housefull' series and 'Son of Sardar'. He also won the third season of reality show 'Bigg Boss'.
"I get TV roles also, I am doing a TV show called 'Laila Majnu Aur Woh'. But movies is something what the whole world watches. 'Bigg Boss' gave me a lot of publicity but that does not happen often. So doing movies, even if it is a supporting role, is important. And the roles I do are substantial," Vindu told PTI on the sidelines of 43rd International Film Festival of India.
The actor said he would do a reality show again if offered.
"I am doing a Punjabi singing show and am being offered a lot of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' type shows. But I can't do such shows so I am being careful before picking up a any," he added.
Vindu will be seen in Sajid Khan's "Himmatwala", which stars Ajay Devgn and actress Tamannaah in lead roles. The movie is a remake of the 1983 blockbuster starring Jeetendra.
"I have a small role. Sajid is a 100 crore club director, we trust him and he has already declared the movie a hit. He is a very confident guy. Sajid and me have a pact that he will never make a movie without me so that is how I was offered the role."
The actor was here to pay homage to his late father Dara Singh, whose movie "Sikandar-E-Azam" was being screened at the festival.
"I am happy to be here. It is an honour that the movie is being showed here after all these years. My father was a very handsome man, he had worked to make his place in the industry and it gives me great pleasure to represent his work here."
