Excerpts from the interview:
Karan: How does it feel ... you know you are back after such a long time... do you feel things have changed in the industry ... the work ethic... things like that?
Madhuri: Yes... simple things
Karan: Like what
Madhuri: Like... you know you have a whole bound script and that's not a very simple ...
Karan: And that didn't happen during your time?
Madhuri: Oh No, it didn't ... sometimes we used to go on the sets, we didn't even know what we were going to say in the scene... we used to get the dialogues right then...
Karan: Last minute
Madhuri: Ya... last minute... learn them and just say them and the whole economics was different at that time of film making... and I think because of the corporate kind of culture that has come in now, its great, because everything is so organized now
Karan: Everything is streamlined...
Madhuri: Everything is disciplined ... you know it is worked out before hand... what the scene is going to be and what you are going to wear... what you're look is going to be ... everything is set for you ... it is so easy for the actors
Karan: What else has happened is, this whole emergence of the paparazzi and the media... do you think...
Madhuri: That has shocked me
Karan: Like what
Madhuri: I was invited for this opening and I saw this barrage of cameramen and the press was like falling all over each other... and I was like what is happening ...
Karan: And that wasn't the case earlier
Madhuri: No, it wasn't... I mean there were a few photographers... same familiar faces who used to be there everywhere to cover... but now it's like you know new people, new faces and I went to this Siddhivinayak temple ...
Karan: Oh ya... they have the tendency to follow people at that particular temple
Madhuri: Ya, you know... I came out and it was like... oh my God, and I thought my kids are going to be scared and I was holding on to them... but you should have seen my little one...
Karan: What did he do?
Madhuri: He was fluttering his eyes and smiling and my other kid was also enjoying all that attention...
Karan: But darling, he is an actresses' son, he has got it in his genes
Madhuri: That's what my husband says... "bachche kiske hai"
Karan: Actresses like Rani and all are huge fans of yours...
Madhuri: Ya, she has told me that
Karan: Have you seen her work?
Madhuri: Yes, I have, and I think she is a very good actress... I have always liked her... and I envy her in a way ... because my dad is a big fan of hers ...
Madhuri: Ya, really
Karan: You must see her in Black... she is fantastic
Madhuri: Ya, I should
Karan: What about your male co-stars, have you met them all, after you are back?
Madhuri: No, not all of them, because everybody is busy... but, I have met Shah Rukh and I think he is only co-star I have met.
