Madhuri Dixit signs two films – a dance musical and a women-oriented drama

At last, the ’90s star’s acting career is gaining momentum

Just when we were about to give up hope of seeing Madhuri Dixit-Nene on the big screen anytime soon, we heard that she’s finally signed two movies. The first is the remake of Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge, which will be directed by Remo D’Souza who was also Madhuri’s ex-colleague on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. And other one is a hard-hitting women centric plot to be directed and produced by Nikhil Advani (Salaam-E-Ishq). It looks like the ’90s leading lady’s decision to turn down the mother’s role in the remake of Hollywood’s Freaky Friday, to be produced by her dear co-star Anil Kapoor, hasn’t been a mistake after all.

Both the films are currently in the pre-production stage, so we are not yet sure which one will go on floors first. Madhuri’s last come back film, Aaja Nachle tanked at the box office in spite of being a dance flick. But we hope with Remo at the helm of things, the remake of Moulin Rouge uplifts the Dhak dhak babe’s career. We’ve got our fingers crossed, have you?
