Kolkata, Feb 21 (IANS) Branding herself a "baby of commercial cinema", actress Madhuri Dixit, who will be seen playing a crusading activist in the forthcoming "Gulaab Gang", Friday said she would "love" to do an out and out comedy film, if the script is to her liking.

"I am a baby of commercial cinema, I did films like 'Raja', which was a mad, funny comedy and I am not averse to that and if I am offered a film like that and if I like the script, then I am open to do that... I would love to do a completely off-the-roof kind of comedy, " she told the media here while promoting "Gulaab Gang".

"Gulaab Gang" is directed by Soumik Sen and produced by Anubhav Sinha. The film also features Huma Qureshi and Juhi Chawla. It releases March 7.

The actress who has given power-packed performances in films like "Lajja" and "Mrityudand" believes in the feminism that stems from within.

"I do believe women should have their own voice, they should be independent, they should stand on their own. I do believe in feminism but I don't believe in the naare-baazi (slogan-shouting) and all.... it should come from within and it should be there for everyone," she said.
