First Look: Madhuri looks ethereal in 'Dedh Ishqiya'
Slated for Januray 31st release, the sequel of ‘Ishqiya’ ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ first still is released. Madhuri Dixit will be making a re-entry in Bollywood with this movie. Though she has earlier appeared in a song ‘Ghagra’ from ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’, ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ will present her in a lead role.
In the still from the movie, seductress Madhuri Dixit is looking ethereal and charismatic. The other leads are being played by Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi. This sequel will show much closer intimacy between Madhuri and Naseerddin. Madhuri is reported to have done a few love making scenes with Naseeruddin Shah. Sources from the set of the movie told that the Dhah Dhak girl shot for the intimate scenes with great comfort.
The director of ‘Dedh Ishqiya’, Abhishek Choubey said, “While Vidya's intimate scenes were earthy and raw, Madhuriji's amorous moments with Naseer saab have been approached with a lot of dignity.”
Arshad Warsi is also reported to have shot a few steaming intimate scenes with his co-star Huma Qureshi.
Madhuri is playing the role of a begum who lives in a palace in Lucknow. The snapshot shows her in a gorgeous red and gold dress. The begum has grey shades in her character. She is enigmatic and dangerous. The director has told that while Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi will continue to play the characters of Khalujan and Babban respectively, Madhuri will be a new addition and will be the apex of sophistication.
Director Abhishek Choubey has created two languages and two worlds in this movie. He said, “One is the world of Naseer saab and Arshad's characters being carried over from the first film. The other is the genteel aristocratic world of Madhuri that we introduce in this film. There is shaayari and mushaaira. But there's also Arshad's crude expressions.”
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is produced by Vishal Bharadwaj and Raman Maroo. The music of the film is given by Vishal Bharadwaj.
Madhuri earlier made a comeback in 2007 with ‘Aaja Nachle’. The movie back fired as it solely banked on Madhri’s dance numbers. But this time, it’s a unique story. But a movie of Madhuri can’t be complete without at least one dance number. So the director has included a mujra number by the begum along with Pandit Birju Maharaj. Is it not cherry on the icing! Be ready in the coming year to watch ‘Dedh Ishqiya’.
