Madhuri Dixit is happy about working with her old friends Inder Kumar and Karan Johar, and also hopes filmmakers will focus on women-centric films.
After her debut in Marathi film ‘Bucket List’ Madhuri Dixit is busy with her upcoming projects with director Inder Kumar’s Total Dhamal and Karan Johar’s Kalank.
The actress is excited for her role in KJo’s Kalank. “I was looking for such a character that I am playing in Kalank and there was no reason to even hesitate to say yes to it,” gushes the actress.
In Bucket List, the actress played a role of a strong and ambitious woman and wishes filmmakers work more on such scripts. “I believe, it’s the best time that filmmakers focus on women oriented subjects,” she says.
After she signed films with her old friends and filmmakers Inder Kumar and Karan Johar, there has been a talk in the film industry that Madhuri works only with people whom she knows well. However, she denies that her friendship plays any part in accepting or rejecting roles and says, “I do not select a film on the basis of friendship. I accepted to be a part of these films only because of the story, plot, my character and good cast.”
The actress is glad with the kind of response her first Marathi film is getting. “I am happy that Marathi film industry has welcomed me whole-heartedly. This has increased myself confidence.”
Though Madhuri has recently met the serving president of BJP Amit Shah, which was part of BJP’s ‘Sampark se Samarthan’ (contact for support) campaign, she dismisses any plans for her joining any party.
“The government needed my support in its initiative and that was all about the meeting.” When probed about possibilities of she joining politics in future, the actress says, “I am not at all a political person. As an artist I can only understand acting and other aspects of filmmaking. I have no interest in joining politics so far.”
