"I am searching for different roles always and I refuse to repeat myself. Maybe that is why my career graph has been slightly strange," Tulip told PTI.
The 29-year-old actress debuted with a big banner film like 'Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai' in 2002 and went on to deliver a powerhouse performance in 'Matrubhoomi', a film highlighting the position of women in society.

"Matrubhoomi is a rare film for an actress. After that film, I was offered many scripts with similar kind of role, which I refused. I don't want to be typecast," said the actress.
The Mumbai-based actress's short career has seen her playing a terrorist in 'Dhokha' in 2007 and a casino dancer in the 2009 film 'Runway'. Even though these film have not done well at the box office, Joshi refuses to go back to playing a girl-next-door character.
"There is no challenge in performing the same kind of story. I am not in any rat race and I am happy to try out different things," said the actress, who is trying her hand at comedy for the first time with her latest film 'Daddy Cool'.

Joshi plays the character of Maria, Aftab Shivdasani's love interest in the movie which centers around a funeral.
"This is my first comic role, something which I wanted to do for a long time. Maria's job in the film is to cover up for all the weird things her boyfriend does at the funeral ceremony," said Joshi.

"It is a humorous film, with a lot of emotions too. I had a blast while shooting for it and also got an opportunity to work with a lot of senior people like Prem Chopra and Suniel Shetty," said the actress.
"Aftab is the centre of attraction in the film, and he has outdone himself to portray the character," she adds.

'Daddy Cool' also stars Chunky Pandey, Ashish Chowdhury, Rajpal Yadav, Aarti Chhabria and Javed Jaffrey.
Joshi is not perturbed by the fact that a multi-star cast film takes away the limelight from a single actor who has to share the platform with so many other stars.
"Films are different nowadays, it does not matter whether it is a multi-star cast or not. I am happy with the way my character has turned out to be," said Joshi.
The former model also said that she is not compelled to act, and does it only by choice.

" I was offered film when I was a model. Back then, I didn't realise acting is a different ball game. I am enjoying it. I do not act because I have to. I do it by choice," said the actress.
