Madhuri praises Konkana, Vidya and Kangana
Madhuri Dixit finds new Bollywood actresses like Konkona Sen Sharma, Vidya Balan and Kangana Ranaut extremely talented and says she sees a part of her in them.
"The young breed of actors like Konkona, Vidya and Kangana are extremely talented, chilled out and eager to learn. I see a part of me in them," said Madhuri, who was here to promote her comeback film "Aaja Nachle".
Directed by Anil Mehta, the film was released last week. The "Dhak Dhak" girl, as she is fondly called, shifted base to the US after marriage and is back in the industry after five long years. She was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Devdas".
"A lot has changed in all these years, right from the discipline to the techniques of shooting a film. Now there is sync sound and a fixed time frame to complete the film."
"There is emergence of a different kind of cinema meant for niche audience and multiplexes are proving a boon to them," she added.
Busy with her home chores otherwise, the actress said her life in the US is a part of her dream but nothing can duplicate the love she finds in India.
"The life I am leading in America is a part of my dream that I had seen. And, believe me, I enjoy every minute of it. I didn't even get time to miss dance, as I am a mother of two kids and they make me dance around them," she said.
"However, the love, warmth and friends that I have in this country, can never by duplicated," Madhuri told IANS.
The versatile actress started her stint in Bollywood with "Abodh" and gave hits like "Tezaab", "Dil", "Beta", "Khalnayak", "Hum Aapke Hain Kaun" and "Dil To Pagal Hai", to name some.
Madhuri spares no chance to introduce Indian culture to her two sons - Arin and Ryan.
"When they were in India they had a great time. When we are at home we speak in Hindi or Marathi. My elder son Arin speaks a little bit of Hindi and I do everything possible to keep them up on our culture," she said.
The actress, with a million-dollar smile, also stated that her comeback wouldn't have been possible without the support extended by her family.
"There were many practical problems before me; for instance, to make sure my kids are happy while I am shooting. All this became possible because of the support of my family," she said.
