For all the fans of Madhuri Dixit out there, there's some good news. The Dhak Dhak girl is all set to make her acting debut in the Marathi Film Industry.
The Devdas actress has a remarkable career in Bollywood which spans over three decades. The dancing diva will be part of a slice-of-life Marathi film which centres around the self-realisation journey of a woman. The upcoming movie will also have humour attached to its narrative style.
The 50-year-old actor told PTI that the movie will have a story that is present in every household but there is a silver lining to it. She added that the movie encourages the people to live and enjoy life in true sense.
The untitled movie will be helmed by Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar. Tejas has also co-written the script of the film along with Devashree Shivadekar.
When asked why it took her a long time to do a Marathi film, the beautiful actress said that she was waiting for the right script.
The 'Dil To Pagal Hai' star told PTI, "Marathi cinema is evolving so beautifully and seeing such incredible stories being told makes me beam with pride. I have received a number of scripts over the years since doing a Marathi film was always something I was open to''.
Madhuri added "But the scripts didn't excite me as this one did. When I read this script, it stood out and with the amazing team behind it, I knew that this is what I wanted to be a part of".
The upcoming movie is being co-produced by Aarti and Subhedar and Subhedar of Blue Mustang Creations, and Arun Rangachari & Vivek Rangachari of Dar Motion Pictures. It is currently in pre-production stage and is expected to go on floors by the year-end.
The Bollywood diva was last seen in the movie Gulaab Gang, which also starred Juhi Chawla. She has also made a name for herself on the small screen with shows like So You Think You Can Dance and Jhalak Dikh Laja.
