Madhuri Dixit’s new role as a theater actress in her comeback film
The Mumbai mulgi, Madhuri is back in town and enjoying every bit of her stay in her homeland, the actress arrived from the States a week back along with her husband Dr. Sriram Nene and her two kids in tow. Madhuri is all set to make her comeback in bollywood with a Yash Raj Film and will be seen working alongside cinematographer Anil Mehta who will be making his directorial debut. Although the film’s storyline is being kept under wraps by Yash Raj Films, according to sources Madhuri will play the role of a theater actress in her forthcoming film.
Madhuri will play the lead role in the film and the film centers around her character, sources claim “Madhuri has a dream role in the film. It’s her story all the way. The other actors are important but supportive. Madhuri plays a theater actress. It’s her character’s ten-year old journey that forms the crux of the film.” The film will have the theater world as its background and will be quite interesting as very few films have actually dealt with this subject which has a lot to explore. The supporting cast is likely to have Konkana Sen Sharma and Ranvir Shorey who will be seen playing members of the theater group. Anupam Kher will in all probability play the theater mentor in the film. The lead actor has not yet been revealed but actor Kunal Kapoor is also being considered for a role in the film.
Earlier there were rumours that Madhuri’s comeback film was based on the Hollywood film ‘Stepmom’, however the buzz now is that the film has not been inspired from this Hollywood flick and instead is a fresh new script. Madhuri meanwhile is enjoying her little vacation with her family in Mumbai city before she starts work on her film in January. The actress claims that she is enjoying her stay here; but her kids are still a bit jet lagged and are still adjusting to the different time zone here.
Madhuri was recently seen visiting the Sddhivinayak temple in Mumbai city and paid her respect at the shrine along with her husband. Hundreds of fans were waiting to greet the actress when she arrived at the temple and she was definitely surprised to see that so many people still remembered her despite staying away from the arc lights for a while. Well, that smile which has won many hearts and her performances too in so many films which won her appreciation will keep her in the memory of her fans for a longtime to come. Let’s hope that her next film will make her fans as excited as before.
