"'Rowdy Rathore' is my first film. People will get to see me in a very different role and look in 'Rowdy Rathore'. I play a lady cop," Gurdeep said.
The movie, releasing Friday, is directed by Prabhu Deva and features Sonakshi Sinha in the female lead. It is being touted as Akshay's return to his master genre - action, and Gurdeep is excited as it gave her an opportunity to try her hand at some stunts as well.
"I haven't done very heavy duty stunts in the movie, but yes, I have got to do some action. I have a sword-fight sequence," she said.
Gurdeep, who became popular with shows like 'Sanjivani' and 'Sinndoor Tere Naam Ka', is currently working on the second season of 'Best Of Luck Nikki'.
