Celebrated as the last of the timeless faces, the complete actress and seen and adored as a living legend, Bollywood’s screen queen Madhuri Dixit may just be back; to the small screen that is. Many, including La Dixit herself have stated that she never really left Bollywood, but it every time she returns it feels like a comeback. Her aura, her talent, her depth, her dancing and her facial expressions are what many actresses in Bollywood lack today. When we as an audience see an opportunity to experience and witness authentic talent at its best amongst the very glam and technical performances we see today — we embrace it! We yearn for an actress of Madhuri’s caliber to return and we may just see an opportunity coming our way!
If things go well, Madhuri Dixit will soon be seen on the dancing reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Ja, in their forthcoming fifth season with a special dancing appearance. Rumors are rife that she will be appearing on the upcoming season as a judge. However, a large section of the media are reporting and are almost certain that she will just be making a small guest appearance with a dance sequence.
Madhuri Dixit is known for her acting and dancing power and Bollywood has shown its keen desire to see Madhuri Dixit return once more. In fact, Madhuri is one of the very few actresses who has been personally complimented and adored by Kathak God Pandit Birju Maharaj. It is with her great dancing repertoire that the producers of the show decided to approach Madhuri. A person close to the producers of the show said, “Our show is very popular. Madhuri is a treat to watch when she dances. Her presence will be an asset and she is quite open to the idea of coming to India and doing this show. She is seriously considering the offer. The modalities are being worked out,” says the source.
Rakeshnath (a.k.a Rikku), Madhuri’s secretary confirmed the offer, but did not comment on Madhuri’s decision. “It’s all at a very nascent stage. There is nothing official as yet. Madhuri gets lots of offers every now and then,” said Rikku.
Let’s all keep our fingers crossed. Big screen or small we want to see Madhuri, period.
