Titi Kamal misses playing
in movies

JAKARTA: Having played in a number of TV soap opera, actress Titi Kamal, who soared to fame after costarring in popular teen flick Ada Apa Dengan Cinta, said she missed playing in movies.

Her role as Maura, a friend of Cinta played by famous Dian Sastrowardoyo, has now made her one of the most sought-after young actresses amid the boom in Indonesian movies.

""I've received lots of interesting offers, but I still have a binding contract for being on TV until March next year. That's why now I'm in a quandary,"" Titi, 23, said.

""I really miss playing in movies,"" Titi was quoted as saying by Kompas Cyber Media on Tuesday.

She is now shooting scenes for soap opera Hantu Jatuh Cinta broadcast on Indosiar.

Previously, Titi, who has pouting, sexy lips, starred in Pura-pura Buta, a TV drama that did not demand great acting skill.

She did not specify why she missed playing in movies. However, many in the industry feel movies are more prestigious for their careers.

A number of veteran movie stars like Deddy Mizwar turned to less challenging but more commercially successful TV dramas after the movie industry suffered a hiatus. --JP
