Recently, Madhuri Dixit turned down an offer to be a brand ambassador for Maharashtra Tourism, since she did not get the fee she wanted.
When Nitesh Rane, Swabhimaan Sanghatana Chief and son of Industries MinisterNarayan Rane, came to know about this, he tweeted, "Madhuri charging high for being the brand ambassador of Maharashtra is such a disgrace! When it comes to your own soil... one should be selfless! Shame!"
Deputy Chief Minister, Ajit Pawar also miffed with Madhuri Dixit as she attended a Shiv Sena event hosted by Bal Thackeray and received the Dinanath Mangeshkar Award but skipped the state awards. He said, "This is a state honour, a token of the love of 11 crore citizens. Some stars were free to receive other awards two days ago, but are tied for time to receive a government honour."
The story does not end here. Even Gulabi Gang’s founder president Sampat Pal is very angry with the Dhak Dhak girl for doing a film based on his life. In a recent interview to a website, she said, “I am unhappy with Madhuri Dixit. She is going ahead with the film without even checking with me. Without our permission, Madhuri shouldn’t work in such a film. Do filmmakers ever make a film based on real life? They come up with movies merely based on newspaper reports and Internet stories. Madhuri Dixitkya hai hamare aage? (Who is Madhuri Dixit in front of me?) People like her are just making money while we help the poor for free.”
We wonder, what Madhuri Dixit has to say about this?
