Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit is one of most loved actresses we have in the industry. The Devdas actress who has given us many memorable films is now all set to venture into Marathi cinema.
Interestingly, the Dhak Dhak girl will make her Marathi film debut with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions’ Bucket List. The Kal Ho Na Ho filmmaker, who had earlier produced Bahubali ,will also foray into Marathi cinema with the film.
Karan Johar is also producing the Hindi remake of the Marathi blockbuster Sairat. The upcoming film which features Ishan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor in lead roles has been titled Dhadak.
Talking about Bucket List, the slice-of-life drama is slated to hit the silver screens on May 25. KJo took to Twitter to reveal the first look of the film, where the Tezab actress can be seen riding a bike.

The Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar directorial is said to centre around the self-realisation journey of a woman. The flick will also have a dash of humour attached to its narrative style, suggest reports.
The film will also feature Renuka Shahane, Shubha Khote and Sumeet Raghavan in key roles.
Madhuri Dixit and Karan Johar had a fun-filled discussion on Twitter, where the former asked the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai director the one thing he wanted to tick off his bucket list. Check out the tweets right here.
Hey @karanjohar what is that one thing you'd want to tick off your bucket list this year?— Madhuri Dixit-Nene (@MadhuriDixit) April 3, 2018
To present you in a Marathi film!— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) April 3, 2018
Oh that's exciting. Then what are we waiting for?— Madhuri Dixit-Nene (@MadhuriDixit) April 3, 2018
Madhuri and Karan judged the popular dance-based reality show Jhalak Dikh Laja for three consecutive seasons. The two Bollywood stars who share a close bond will also collaborate for Abhishek Varman’s upcoming film.
“Karan and Madhuri share a warm equation. They are even doing a film together (Abhishek Varman’s next). When Karan saw the teaser of Bucket List, which was released a week ago, he loved it and spoke to the team. He came on board as a presenter and along with Madhuri, this will be his debut in the Marathi film space’’, a source told DNA.
The first look of Bucket List has increased anticipation among the fans who just can’t wait for Madhuri Dixit to return to the silver screen.
