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 characters.

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.
