After staying away from the spotlight for nearly a decade, Madhuri Dixit-Nene embraces multiple mediums to stay in touch with the audience
A decade after her return to showbiz, actor Madhuri Dixit-Nene seems more visible than ever before. With television shows, events, channels and films — all wanting to associate themselves with Dixit-Nene in some way or the other, a few may call it an overdose of the actor.
But she says, "It's my way of keeping up with my fans". In order to interact more with her fans, she has launched her official website. She also shares tips, anecdotes and pictures on Twitter. "In today's world, there is so much scope to keep in touch with your fans, and I like doing that," she says.
In a male-dominated industry, Dixit-Nene was the heartthrob of millions. The actor, along with her contemporary Sridevi, dominated the popular consciousness of the nation. Her versatile style of acting, dance moves and smile are still considered her USPs and the best in the film business.
Tell Dixit-Nene of her impact, and she gives her trademark smile. "I have worked hard, but I have been fortunate too," she says.
Dixit-Nene has been married for almost 10 years, and has two sons — Arin and Ryan. She returned to India in November 2011, after spending a decade in Denver. The TV industry has embraced her in an almost desperate bid to boost their TRPs. She has taken on the mantle of being the judge on Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, brand ambassador of the Food Food Channel and sutradhar of Life OK. "I liked the content of these shows and channels. That's the reason I am doing this," she says. She is also seen doing a number of endorsements, walking the ramp and attending social dos.
