I never got into industry’s politics, Madhuri Dixit


Madhuri Dixit who ruled the silver screen in late 80’s and early 90’s is back to silver screen after ‘Aaja Nachle’ disaster with Vishal Bhardwaj`s ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ and Anubhav Sinha`s ‘Gulab Gang’. The actress said that she always enjoyed her work and never got into the politics of the industry.

"Being number one or number two never bothered me. I did not believe in all that. I had this in mind that whenever I go on the sets, I have to give my best. Whenever I gave a good shot, that was a special moment for me.

"I never got into the politics of the industry. I was always kept away from it and enjoyed being being part of it," Madhuri said at an event held here Friday.

Madhuri firmed her foot in Bollywood with movies like ‘Tezaab’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, ‘Dil’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Khalnayak’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’, ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’ and ‘Devdas’.  

Despite being a successful actress, the 45-year-old still looks gorgeous and her attitude is always down to earth. Madhuri gives credit to her family to be like that.

"My family, their values and education have kept me grounded. I am not a frog in the well. There is a life outside the industry and I have always been very curious about it. I love meeting people and talking to them. For me it is not about `I, me and myself`," she added.

Madhuri moved to the US after getting married to Shriram Chandra Nene on Oct 17, 1999. Post the success of reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’, she with her family moved back to India.

She has signed two films and will start shooting soon, Talking about the kind of films being made today, Madhuri said: "Some years back there was a demarcation of art films and commercial cinema but now it is not like that. Now the lines are quite blurred. Realistic films are made now and there are no over the top characters. Also the audiences have matured."
