Madhuri Dixit: I am enjoying this phase of my life!

The dancing diva, who will be seen in Dedh Ishqiya very soon talks about her second innings and much more…

Madhuri Dixit-Nene is all set to return to the silver screen after seven years, in a never-seen-before avatar in the soon-to-release Dedh Ishqiya, a hinterland based thriller-drama. The gorgeous lady has been flooded with offers of movies, endorsements and TV shows and is enjoying all the attention. “I am enjoying this phase of my life. And I am having fun with it. Whether it’s TV or movies or ads, I enjoy it all and that’s the reason I do it”, she said in a recent interview.

After ruling Bollywood for years, Madhuri shifted base to Denver when she married US-based doctor Sriram Nene in 1999. Then she attempted a comeback with Aaja Nachle in 2007, but unfortunately the film failed at the box-office, and she went back to the US. Four years later, she came back to India, this time for good. Since then, Madhuri has been busy as a judge in the fourth and fifth seasons of the celebrity dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. In between, she made a special appearance in the Ghagra song in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Ask about her character in Dedh Ishqiya and she says, “Begum Para is a beautiful character written by Abhishek Chaubey (director of Dedh Ishqiya). She is a poetic woman. She is a widow and her late husband’s wish was that if she ever marries again, she should marry a poet. Every year she organises a swayamvar for herself. She has been completely unimpressed for two years, but in the third year Babban (Arshad Warsi) and Khalujaan (Naseeruddin Shah) arrive and things change,” she explains.

It’s been quite a long time since we saw Madhuri playing a lead role in a film. Is she nervous? Hell, no! “I am not at all nervous. In fact, I am really excited. Not only because my role is good in the film, but the script is also really good. I think Dedh Ishqiya is completely entertaining,” she smiles.

We can’t wait to see Madhuri back on the silver screen. What about you, peeps?
