Madhuri Dixit – a timeless beauty, a superb dancer and a flawless performer who has played almost every character during her stint in the Indian film industry is now back after a long career break.
Madhuri who was alluded to as one of the best Bollywood actresses, made her debut in the year 1985 with Abodh. However it was not until in 1988 when her movie Tezaab was released which made her taste the success in the film industry. In the 90’s she achieved the super stardom with one after the other hits such as Dil, Saajan, Beta, Khalnayak, Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Raja and Dil Toh Pagal Hai. In early 2000 we saw her in roles which were more critically acclaimed, such as in Mrityudand, Pukar, Lajja and Devdas. She has not only captured the hearts of all her fans, directors but also the famous painter M.F Hussain. In 2002 Madhuri took a career break and headed towards family way.
Her fans were indeed elated to see her comeback in “Aaja Nachle” where she plays a dance instructor. Although the movie did not really create the magic as we hoped it would but nevertheless it was a treat to see gracious Madhuri act even at this age and give all the young actresses a run for their money.
As an actress, she has got couple of movies lined up in her kitty in year 2013. She is currently working on Abhishek Chaubhey’s “Dedh Ishqiya” which is apparently the sequel of famous movie “Ishqiya”. She is the main lead actress and working with Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah. The movie is being shot in Lucknow. As far as the choreographer is concerned, Madhuri will be choreographed by none other than renowned Kathak dancer Birju Maharaj. It is one movie which is keeping her fans eagerly waiting. But only the time will tell if it is able to outshine it’s the Original “Ishqiya”.
Her next upcoming flick would be Meghna Gulzar’s “36-24-36”. That does make one wonder if Madhuri is kicking hard to get that dream figure. The director does claim that the movie revolves around the weight loss regime and is an outright comedy film. With the way Madhuri has maintained herself it would not be very hard for her to fit in the role. Not much has been disclosed about the movie as it is still in its very early stages of conception. However one does look forward to see Madhuri do a comic role and hopefully make us all roll with fun and laughter.
Another much awaited film featuring this actress is Krishna Shah’s “Mother – The Indira Gandhi Story” scheduled to be released in Aug 2013. Madhuri is all set to play the role of ionic Indira Gandhi in this biopic which has a very powerful plot. The most interesting part is the research that has been done on this film, the director has left no stone unturned and has spent 20 years in doing the research.
Till date she has over 66 movies in her bucket, 11 awards along with prestigious Padma Shri. Madhuri Dixit whom we have always known as the enduring “Dhak Dhak” girl who would make every one skip a beat in her “Ek do teen” number will now be making her comeback on silver screen as legendary Indira Gandhi. One can only sum her talent as simply par excellence.
