Madhuri Dixit-Nene: Age is just a number according to me

The dhak dhak girl believes that age is just a number and nothing else

Madhuri Dixit-Nene does not buy into the myth that Bollywood actresses have a short shelf-life or they can’t get work post marriage. “Age is just a number according to me, talent is the same whether you are 10, 20 or 100. I think it gets better with age. I also don’t believe in the myth about married actresses. I think it is crazy. Sharmila Tagore worked after marriage, Rakhiji worked after marriage… Yes, some of them quit but that was their own decision. There were so many who did work. There are no hard and fast rules,” Madhuri told in a recent interview.

Madhuri ruled Bollywood in the ’80s and ’90s as one of the top stars but she shifted to the US post her marriage to Sriram Nene only to return in 2011. Her US stay did not lessen her sway over her audiences as she kept travelling back to star in movies like Devdas and Aaja Nachle. Post her return, Madhuri is busy juggling between various TV shows, advertisement deals and films. She is ready to release her second film of 2014 Gulaab Gang following the success of Dedh Ishqiya.

Madhuri, however, feels women now have a bigger say in the industry compared to earlier times. “There was a time in films when I never saw a female assistant director, camera person or make-up person. There were very few women directors who you could count on your fingers. Now there are so many women working in different aspects of filmmaking. There are talented women directors like Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti. The sensibilities are changing,” the actor said.
