Madhuri says she does not want to restrict herself to any one role
After winning hearts of millions
of fans with her emotion-filled acting and dancing skills,
Madhuri Dixit now wants to show her funny side on screen.
The popular Bollywood actor, who currently has two
films in her kitty, says she is open to doing all kinds of
roles and does not want to restrict herself to certain
Considering that Madhuri has heavy duty roles in her
upcoming movies Gulab Gang and Dedh Ishqiya, she now wants
to try something light - a comedy, fun film.
"I am open to anything (in films). I would love to do
something that is fun... I would love to do comedy. I would
like to do a lot of things. It depends on what I am offered,
it depends what I like and what excites me," Madhuri told PTI
in an exclusive interview here.
"It is not that I have restricted myself (to certain
roles and films). Right now I am busy with two films. I have
Jhalak Dikhla Jaa (a dance reality show on TV) coming up and
have this online dance academy," the Dhak Dhak girl said
about her projects and life in the film industry.
She would be seen next in Gulab Gang, produced by
Anubhav Sinha, alongside Juhi Chawla, Mahie Gill and Shilpa
Shukla among others. The film, directed by Soumik Sen, is a
story of a gang of women fighting against social injustice.
"Gulab Gang is shaping up really well. I am enjoying
doing it. I have a very strong role in the film," the 45-year-
old star said.
Her next project is Vishal Bharadwaj's Dedh Ishqiya,
a sequel to 2010 movie Ishqiya, where she will be seen
alongside veteran Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi.
"For Dedh Ishqiya we haven't started shooting yet.
We will start in a couple of days. I am sure it will be fun
working with Naseerji and Arshad as both are fabulous actors.
It is an honour to work with him (Naseeruddin).
Madhuri, who will be back on silver screen after a gap
of six years - she was last seen in Yash Raj's Aaja Nachle
in 2007, insisted that she always tries to give her best.
"If films are good they will do well," she said when
asked about judging a movie's success on the basis of it doing
a Rs 100-crore business.
