Madhuri Dixit asked to leave VIP lounge at Bhopal airport
Madhuri Dixit Nene, the Bollywood actress and producer Anubhav Sinha, were in Bhopal for the promotion of their next movie ‘Gulaab-Gang’, when the glamour girl was asked to leave the VIP lounge at the Bhopal airport.
The two were waiting for their return flight to Mumbai, after the promotion, when an airport official took them to the VIP lounge and wanted to click a photograph with the Bollywood diva.
But the ‘dhak dhak girl refused to pose since she was very tried with the day’s programme.
This made official upset and the actress was asked to leave the lounge.
Sinha was quoted by a newspaper saying, “How can someone do such a thing to a woman? It is completely unfair to her.”
“An official walked up to us and escorted us to the VIP lounge. We weren’t even going there. He then asked Madhuri for a photograph. Madhuri’s manager, Minaxi, refused, saying that Madhuri was very tired. The man then got angry and asked us to leave the lounge immediately,” he said.
“Fortunately, it was time for our flight, but what happened was completely uncalled for. People don’t understand that stars are humans too, and you can’t expect them to behave the way you want. She was tired after the hectic day we had,” Sinha said, adding, “I asked him to give us his name but he refused to speak to us after that.”
The actress, who has won six Filmfare Awards and has also honoured with the Padma Shri Award by the Government of India in 2008, is seen performing martial art in ‘Gulaab-Gang’. She will be seen opposite Juhi Chawla, who features in a negative role for the first time in her acting career.
Madhuri has been seen it such hit films as, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Tridev’, ‘Parinda’, ‘Hum Apke Hain Kaun’, ‘Raja’ , ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, ‘Lajja’, ‘Devdas’, ‘Aaja Nachle’ to name a few.
‘Gulab-Gan’ is directed by Soumik Sen and is scheduled to be hit theatres across India on March 7, the eve of International Women’s Day.
The film tells the story of a group of Indian women dressed in pink saris, fighting against social injustice, operating in the country’s Hindi heartland. Initially, it was reported that the movie was based on Sampat Pal Devi’s life, but the director said, although he respected her work, the movie was not based on her life.
