Though her recent dancing act in Aaja Nachle may not have been the comeback it was touted to be, Madhuri Dixit was still praised for her grace, charm and of course, inimitable dancing style. For many, the film is considered to be very heart-warming. Lucky for fans, Madhuri is in talks to do another film for Pritish Nandy Communications which will be directed by Meghna Gulzar, daughter of director and lyricist Gulzar.
In the past, Meghna has directed Filhaal, Just Married the fantastic segment titled ‘Pooranmashi’ in Dus Kahaniyaan. As she gears up for her next film, she admits that she has Madhuri in mind for a role and has already approached her. She tells Mumbai Mirror, “Yes, it’s true that we are in talks with Madhuri to play the protagonist in a comedy film. But it’s too early to discuss anything right now.” The role is said to be an out-and-out comedy role and something that Madhuri has never done before.
During a meeting about the script, Madhuri was laughing away and expressed her interest to work in the film. Of course, her only problem is being away from her family. The producers (PNC) have taken this into account and are actually willing to film the movie in the U.S.A. so that Madhuri will be able to stay near her kids and husband. Currently, she is busy with the Unforgettable Tour but once her portion is concluded, Meghna says that dates will be worked out.
The film is titled 36-24-36 and Meghna says, “The film is obviously about measurements and weight loss. Not that I think Madhuri’s out of shape. But she will do complete justice to the character. And she too said that it’s something she’d definitely like to do.”
For many of us, it doesn’t matter what she’s doing, we will flock to the theatres just to see this dancing queen!
