MUMBAI: Actor Jimmy Sheirgill, who has been experimenting with different roles, says he doesn't want to do the same roles again and again.

"As an actor, I don't want to be repetitive. Why would you do something which you have done before? Sometimes the story is such that you want to be part of it, but you feel 'I have done this role, but the challenge is how can I make it different'," Jimmy told IANS.

"That's the only time when it's slightly different. Otherwise with me, the idea is experimenting and portraying different kinds of characters and try to do something that I have not done before. I don't want to repeat myself as an actor," he added.

The actor also shared that he doesn't do films for awards.

He said: "It's not that I do films for awards. I have got awards for 'A Wednesday', 'Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster' feel great when you get awards. It's an icing on the cake."

The actor is currently busy promoting his film "Madaari", directed by Nishikant Kamat. Miraj Entertainment and Bharat Shah in association with are presenting "Madaari", a Paramhans Creations production.
