Madhuri Dixit-Nene is an actress who still has as much appeal today as she had in the 90s and noughties. However, when asked if she missed that era of song and dance, she’s quick to say that she does.
“Yes. When we had films that were larger-than-life, people expected specially choreographed and elaborate dance sequences. But when you go into a different genre like Andhadhun, where would you add a song there? So, ultimately a script decides that. Besides, when there is dance in movies, there are people saying why are there dances? And if there are no dances, people are still going to say why no dances! They would work in a dance-themed film or a film where you can incorporate dance. But if you are making Uri, where would you add a dance?” says Dixit-Nene, in a recent interview with CineBlitz.
Talking about her songs like Ek Do Teen and Tamma Tamma being re-worked for today’s audiences, she adds, “I think it’s wonderful to see them being inspired and wanting to recreate something that they are nostalgic about. I think they perceive it in a certain way which is great too.”
Dixit-Nene will be seen next in ‘Kalank’, which is scheduled for release on 17th April.
