Vancouver: Actress Neha Dhupia is excited to return to her roots by starring in her first Punjabi film `Rangeelay` with Jimmy Shergill, who has also produced the movie.

The 32-year-old actress, who hosted the musical extravaganza for the debut Times of India Film awards here, said she would not mind taking up regional projects with interesting scripts.

"`Rangeelay` is really interesting. I had a month off and Jimmy came up with a really interesting script so I thought why not. Jimmy is coming tomorrow. He has a huge fan following here among the Punjabi audience. I did not do it for the reach, I did it for the experience," Neha said on the sidelines of TOIFA.

"When I have time, I would like to do films in my language but I would also like to star in Bengali and Marathi films too. I have already done two movies in Telugu. I like to work in cinema everywhere," she said.

Neha will next begin shooting for a comedy with Viacom besides Karan Johar`s `Unglee`.

"`Unglee` has a big heart and it is in the right place. It is very different script. It is not all candy floss. It is nice to see Karan encouraging such a film," she said.
