ACTRESS Diana Danielle (pic) said she would not be picky with the roles offered to her despite her recent accolades, Sinar Harian reported.

Having been crowned as the Best Female Film Actor for the Screen Awards 2019, Diana said she would not be increasing her acting fees or be choosy with her roles.

“I will not be putting such strict criteria when assessing any future offers. As long as the script is good and is worth my sacrifice of leaving my children at home while I work, I am okay.

“For me, it is not solely about the question of money or about choosing a certain type of character. I will not use my award as an excuse to be demanding this or that, ” said the mother of two.

Md Kamil Abdullah, 61, said that he maintained such low prices to cater to the villagers, most of whom were rubber tappers.

He said his low prices had made other traders in Jalan Jeram in Pasir Puteh uneasy, but he told them that it was part of his charity to the community.

He added that he was able to sell about 800 to 1,000 pieces of roti canai a day at his stall, which is open at 3am every day except Tuesday.

“Besides plain roti canai, I also sell roti canai telur and murtabak at RM1 and RM2 respectively, ” he said.
