Working in Bollywood as per my plan: Madhuri
Mumbai: Actress Madhuri Dixit, who will be seen in two upcoming Hindi films, is happy to work with a new crop of talented actors and says she has been working in Bollywood as per her own plan.
Madhuri is set to stage a comeback in Bollywood after a gap of six years with two projects - Vishal Bharadwaj's home production 'Dedh Ishqiya' and Anubhav Sinha-produced 'Gulab Gang'.
She has also done an item song in Karan Johar's home production 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', which released today. The item song, 'Ghagra', features her and new age actor Ranbir Kapoor.
"I don't why people call it a comeback... It is a mystery to me. Everyone works according to their plan. The vibe from industry people is positive... People love me and are waiting to see 'Gulab Gang' and 'Dedh Ishqiya'," Madhuri told PTI in an interview here.
After her marriage in 1999 to a US-based surgeon, she did Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Devdas' in 2002. She then took a break and staged a comeback with Aditya Chopra's home production 'Aaja Nachle' in 2007.
Despite missing from the silver screen, the 46-year-old filmstar was very much present on small screen. She appeared as one of the judges in TV dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' in season four and five. She will be again judging the show in its sixth edition that starts from June 1.
After marriage, Madhuri relocated to US for almost a decade. But in 2011, she shifted her base back to Mumbai along with her family.
'Gulab Gang', directed by newcomer Soumik Sen, also stars Juhi Chawla, Mahie Gill, Shilpa Shukla and others.
"I have done everything in this film - fight scene, dancing and singing. It is an entertaining film. We are saying quite a few things through this film but in an entertaining way. It is not a heavy film which delivers sermons.
"It was good working with a new crop of actors. They were full of energy, have ideas and are confident. It was wonderful working with talented actors," she added.
