Madhuri: I want to take dance to every person in the world
http://www.rediff.com/movies/slide-show/slide-show-1-madhuri-dixit-i-had-a-blast-dancing-with-ranbir-tv/20130528.htm

Madhuri Dixit is excited about returning as the judge in the next season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, the popular dance reality TV show.

"I like the show as it brings out the interesting journey of contestants. Anyone can dance but it is important to put your heart and soul into a performance," Madhuri says. The show will premiere on June 1 on Colors.

Madhuri chats about the show, her upcoming movies, and how she still looks so gorgeous.

For the opening episode of Jhalak..., you will perform the item number Ghagra from the film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with Ranbir Kapoor. What was it like working with him in the film and on TV?

Ranbir is a talented actor and a very good dancer. The kind of energy he gets on the floor is wonderful. I had a blast dancing with him.

What was it like being teamed with noted classical dancer Birju Maharaj in a special act on Jhalak? (He choreographed her songs in Devdas, Dil To Pagal Hai and for her upcoming film Dedh Ishqiya)

I am happy and honoured that I will be dancing with him in Jhalak. I am getting butterflies in my stomach. I am nervous about being able to match up to him. I will treasure this moment.

You have recorded a song with your mother Snehlata Dixit in your upcoming movie Gulab Gang...

They wanted a voice for a particular sequence, not a proper song. A couple of instruments play in the background and they wanted an actress -- me -- to break into the song. They wanted to make it realistic, so when the director asked me, I thought about it and agreed.

How did you convince your mother?

Actually, I tricked my mother (laughs). I just told her to come along as I was recording. The artistic talent what I have is because of my mother. She is interested in music. She had four children but still managed to do a Masters degree in Vocal Hindustani Music.

She couldn't learn dance but made her daughters learn it. All those things we have got from her.

I quietly took her along and asked her to sing one line for me. She sang and I was like 'Mom, you have made your debut at 80!' (laughs).

How did your children react when they saw you dance to Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani?

The first time they saw the song on TV, they came running to me and said 'Mom, you are on TV'. They are still innocent and don't understand it fully. But they were happy that their mother is on TV.

We have not seen a dancing actor like you.

That is your thought (smiles) but I don't endorse it completely. Everybody has their own personality on screen

You have lost weight and look fit and gorgeous. Was that for a role in any film?

I have lost weight to keep myself healthy.

Second, I have to be seen on screen, and I have to be slim because the screen adds a lot of weight.

Third, in this profession, you have to look after yourself because I have to dance and be fit.

So how do you keep fit?

What you eat is very important. Eat healthy. A workout is very important. I workout or dance for an hour.

I don't starve but I believe in a good balanced diet. I have five small meals in a day, each meal after every three hours.

What is new in this season of Jhalak?

We have associated Jhalak with my online dance academy, Dance with Madhuri. On Jhalak, they will teach seven steps every week. You can learn and upload the steps from my website.  

If someone is good, s/he gets a reward. The better ones get to come on the show, while the really good ones will get a chance to dance with me.

This season it's not only for the celebrities but also for the aam janta (ordinary folk).

What is that one dance form that you wish to learn?

I want to learn tap dancing. During the Stardust awards, we added a few elements of tap dancing. But when I see Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, I feel I should have learnt this also.

Is there any international reality show that you watch?

I like American Idol. I love the singers who come on the show.

Can you talk a bit about your production house?
Under our banner, we have formed an online dance academy. Right now we are working on it to make it more comprehensive and getting more styles into it with different choreographers and gurus.

I think everybody should be able to dance and be exposed to these gurus who have so much talent.

I want to take dance to every person in the world.

It's a stress buster and keeps you fit and just gives you joy. We try and make it easy for everyone to learn at leisure. We want to bring different dance forms, be it classical, western or Bollywood style, under one roof.

How was it working with Juhi Chawla in Gulaab Gang?

She is a very good actress herself and we have very nice scenes together. I enjoyed working in the film.

Any dance based film that you have liked in recent times?

ABCD is a good attempt by Remo D'Souza (choreographer-director). I loved the dance in the movie and it's innovative.

What kind of movies are you interested in?

I found the two roles in Gulaab Gang and Dedh Ishqiya interesting. If I get something challenging, I would love to do it.

Dharmendra most handsome person, says Madhuri
http://hillpost.in/2013/05/dharmendra-most-handsome-person-says-madhuri/82246/

 In her about three-decade career Bollywood dancing diva Madhuri Dixit has worked with many good looking and talented actors like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Sanjay Dutt, but she finds yesteryear star Dharmendra the most handsome.

"I think he is one of the most handsome persons I have ever seen on screen," Madhuri said while talking about Dharmendra's good looks, and added she is also a huge fan of his trademark dancing step.

"We do so many steps, different steps to win the people's heart, but he did it (won the heart of people) with his one step. So you can understand what kind of reverence he has for us also," said Madhuri Monday at the launch of the sixth season of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa".

Dharmendra made his dance style popular with the song "Main jat yamla pagla deewana" in 1975 movie "Pratigya".

Madhuri is set to judge at the sixth season of the dance reality show along with filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-director Remo D'Souza, which is set to go on-air June 1 with 12 contestants fighting for the crown.

In the first two episodes of the show, Dharmendra will be seen. He is curerntly promoting his home production "Yamla Pagla Deewana 2?, which is coming out June 7.

First Jitesh tweets this:

J ?@Jiteshpilllaai15 May

Madhuri Dixit proves that she can still make people go DHAK DHAK over her. She looks fantabulos with Ranbir Kapoor in GHAGRA song. #YJHD

Then this:
 
J ?@Jiteshpilllaai15 May

Surprisingly the Ghagra song has not turned out too well. Madhuri shd realise she is not young anymore & leave such songs for newbies.

And now this:
 
J ?@Jiteshpilllaai1h

Madhuri Dixit is so plastic & absurd in Jhalak promos. Wat wtong wt her hair stylist & dress designer.Take a tip frm Deepika & Sridevi.
