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.

Juhi has enjoyed the experience of filming "Gulaab Gang" and says Madhuri has turned out to be her "best co-star".

"Madhuri has been my best co-star, that says it all. It was wonderful. Just before we both started shooting, Soumik called both of us to his office and he left the room and it was just both of us.

"Really, we had not interacted with each other earlier, so we got (a chance) to know each other and that exercise helped us a lot," she said.

Madhuri also conceded: "We enjoyed working with each other. Unless you don't have warmth for each other, you can't work together. I enjoyed working with Juhi and it's great finally we worked together."

The movie, slated to release March 7, talks about pink sari-clad women activists who protest against the social injustice against women in the Bundelkhand region of central India.

    Really hope the script does justice two these two amazing actresses!
    Juhi in a negative role is refreshing.
    She was typecast as the bubbly girl or as a supportive wife or bhabi as she got older. She will do great justice to the role of an antagonist

    Looking forward to watching this film I don't know the story, but I'm sure starring such big name actresses it will be as gripping as No one killed Jessica something like the roles Rani and Vidya played in that film, but with a political background.
