New Delhi, June 23 -- Actor Juhi Chawla, who was last seen essaying a negative role on the big screen, says that she likes to experiment with roles, but prefers not to play dark characters.
"I can experiment with anything now. Like I was pushed into Gulaab Gang, and later I loved it too, but I don't like playing dark characters, I personally don't. I am very careful about the kind of roles I choose to play," says Juhi.
The 47-year-old wants to work on scripts that she would enjoy not just as an actor but as a viewer, too.
"Today when I go to see a movie, I want to see something that entertains me, makes me laugh, cry and think a little ... I like that kind of cinema to watch as an audience. So, when something dark and grey and strange is narrated, I may not go and watch the movie. So how can I expect people to watch it?" she says.
With successful hits such as Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988), Bol Radha Bol (1992) and Yes Boss (1997) to her credit, Juhi feels she can never ask her fans to watch her film if she is not convinced about her role. "It's important to love what you do onscreen. If you are not kicked about the film then how can you tell people with conviction 'hey watch this film'," says Juhi.
The actor will soon be seen playing the role of a teacher in director Jayant Gilatar's movie.
