Juhi Chawla, known for playing bubbly, vivacious and lovable characters on screen, had her reservations about playing a villainous politician in her forthcoming film Gulaab Gang.
But she is glad that she finally took up the role in the movie, which also stars her contemporary Madhuri Dixit.
"When I read the script, it was great, but by the end of it, I said 'Why will I do this role? People will not believe me if I do this role'. But Finally, when I took it on, I thought it will be fun to do something different," Juhi told reporters here during a promotional event for the movie.
"I am really glad I am being accepted as a villain today. I was scared whether people will accept me this way or start laughing on my dialogues," she added.
The movie on women empowerment is directed by Soumik Sen.
Gulaab Gang, slated to release on March 7, talks about pink sari-clad women activists who protest against the social injustice against women in the Bundelkhand region of central India.
