Mumbai: Dixit made her film debut in Abodh in1984 and received wider public recognition with Tezaab. Now Madhuri Dixit, who has collaborated with Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor after a gap of many years, says it was wonderful to team up with her former co-stars.
Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri, stars of ’90s hits Khalnayak and Saajan, are set to share the screen space again after a gap of 20 years in Karan Johar-produced Kalank while she and Kapoor are collaborating for Indra Kumar’s Total Dhamaal.
Madhuri has been praised by critics for her acting and dancing skills. She has received 6 Filmfare Awards, four for Best Actress, one for Best Supporting Actress and one special award for her contribution to the film industry. She has been nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress a record fourteen times and along with Rakhee is the most nominated actress in the acting categories with 16 nominations. She was awarded the Padma Shri, India’s fourth-highest civilian award, by the Government of India in 2008.
The actor, known as one of the best dancing stars of Hindi cinema, also spoke about the remake of her iconic song Ek do teen, which was recreated for Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 2, featuring Jacqueline Fernandez.
In an interview she said, “(I’m)Very excited. We have given big hits together… Both me and Anil and me and Sanjay. It’s wonderful to be working together again”.
“There is nothing wrong in remaking. I, myself, am doing the remake of Paisa Hee Paisa song. You can’t say it is a bad thing to do. It is cute. It is an iconic song so they want to make it differently but with this song people were very attached so nobody wanted to see, you can’t blame the makers,” she added.
Madhuri will be seen next in a Marathi film called Bucket List whose trailer was launched yesterday. Bucket List marks the debut of the actor in the Marathi film industry. The film also features Renuka Shahane and Sumeet Raghavan in pivotal roles. Bucket List has been directed by Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar. The movie will release on big screen on 25 May, 2018.
