Madhuri Dixit

Bollywood dancing diva Madhuri Dixit Nene made her silver screen debut 28 back with "Abodh" and since then there has no looking back. The "Dhak dhak" girl says she has always enjoyed her work and tried to keep herself away from the politics of the industry.

"Being number one or number two never bothered me. I did not believe in all that. I had this in mind that whenever I go on the sets, I have to give my best. Whenever I gave a good shot, that was a special moment for me.

"I never got into the politics of the industry. I was always kept away from it and enjoyed being being part of it," Madhuri said at the Agenda Aaj Tak held here Friday.

She was the guest speaker at a session during the event.

Madhuri became a name to reckon with after her performance in superhits like "Tezaab", "Ram Lakhan", "Tridev", "Dil", "Saajan", "Khalnayak", "Hum Aapke Hain Koun", "Dil To Pagal Hai" and "Devdas".

With some many good films and commendable performances to her credit, the 45-year-old still looks the same and has always been very down to earth. The actress says its her family that has helped her to be like that.

"My family, their values and education have kept me grounded. I am not a frog in the well. There is a life outside the industry and I have always been very curious about it. I love meeting people and talking to them. For me it is not about 'I, me and myself'," she added.

Madhuri married Shriram Chandra Nene on Oct 17, 1999 and moved to the US. Post-marriage, Madhuri worked in just "Aaja Nachle", which didn't do so well. But her stint as the judge on dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" gave her a chance to reconnect with her fans.

After the success of the show, Madhuri shifted base here with her husband and sons from the US in October last year.

Now she will be seen back on the silver screen in Vishal Bharadwaj's "Dedh Ishqiya" and Anubhav Sinha's "Gulab Gang".

Talking about the kind of films being made nowadays, Madhuri said: "Some years back there was a demarcation of art films and commercial cinema but now it is not like that. Now the lines are quite blurred. Realistic films are made now and there are no over the top characters. Also the audiences have matured."

    Sridevi has ruined her face. Madhuri has carried herself with much more grace by marrying outside of the film fraternity (in other words, not marrying a married man). She has put on weight, but she has given birth to two kids and doesn't need to be skinny. She does come across a bit fake, but it cannot be denied that she seems to get along with pretty much everyone and seems easy-going.

    Sridevi and madhuri both are equally talented and there is no comparison between them. Sridevi has come back with bang in English vinglish. Waiting for madhuri's come back too. Everyone ages and some does it gracefully and some likes to look younger and sridevi is trying that and which doesn't look bad on her.
    Good luck to both of them.

    Oh yeah, Sridevi. An epitome of character and integrity. Getting married to a man who was already married and had kids. Definitely something to be proud of.

    Considering that Madhuri had her secretary doing the needful for her in one controversy after another in her hey dey ('who's No.1, she, Juhi or Sridevi'; Subhash Ghai/ Anil Kapoor/ Sanjay Dutt affairs), ofcourse she didn't speak on stuff herself and remained diplomatic publicly. Madhuri was hot and 'it' girl in 90's. But world has moved on. Look at Sridevi and how she has maintained herself, looks modern, and has a hit 'English Vinglish', unlike Madhuri who has no dress sense, is clearly 'Auntie' material, is fat and just wants to make millions off her 90's fame rather than remaining relevant for today's audience. There's nothing real about Madhuri. She's plastic like Ash. I mean, did anyone believe her when she said her husband had never seen a film of hers before marriage??!!

    MADHURI LOOKS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL NOW THEN WHEN SHE WAS IN HER 20'S!

    MY NEPHEWS WHO ARE IN THEIR TEENS FIND MADHURI MUCH MORE SEXY AND SENSUAL THEN CURRENT TOP HEROINS!

    WE HOPE THAT MADHURI DOES NOT PLAY 'MOTHERLY' ROLES JUST YET, SHE IS STILL YOUNG LOOKING ENOUGH TO PLAY COLLEGE GOING GIRL WHO CAN 'RUN AROUND TREES'!!!
