Is Madhuri Dixit staging a comeback to movies? Has Yash Chopra offered her a film? Is Bobby Bedi contemplating signing the actress to enact the role of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi? All sorts of stories are floating in the industry. So what's the truth?
Every few months one keeps hearing that Madhuri, who is settled in the U.S. after her marriage, is contemplating returning to movies. Sometime back, Somnath Sen [LEELA] had teamed Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri in his new project, but the film couldn't materialize since the actress was pregnant with her second child.
In the recent past, there were murmurs that at least two prominent producers, Yash Chopra and Bobby Bedi, had approached the actress with film projects. "True, both Yash-ji and Bobby have offered her films," Madhuri's business manager Rikku confirms the development, "But the truth is that she hasn't officially signed any of the projects. There have been discussions... In fact, Yash-ji had offered her two projects, but it all depends on whether she feels excited about those roles."
Rikku continues with the topic, "Right now, Madhuri is busy with her family. Looking after her husband, home and raising two kids is a full-time responsibility. But, at the same time, she hasn't closed the doors on movies. Sure, she's taking time, but the wait will be worth it."
