The ever-smiling and elegant Madhuri Dixit is not only returning to the big screen. The actress is also returning as a judge on popular dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. BizAsia has learnt that, as part of her appearance, she recently paid tribute to the beautiful Meena Kumari in a special performance that is sure to wow the audiences when it is finally shown on the small screen.
Dixit handpicked the song ‘Thade Rahiyo’ from the classic ‘Pakeezah’ (1972) which was, of course, the last film of Kumari’s before her untimely death. According to the Hindustan Times, a source who witnessed Dixit’s tribute said, “Madhuri chose this very song to pay tribute to the 60s star in the first promo of upcoming dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, which she is judging”.
It is thought that the 44-year-old stunned the viewers with her graceful moves, dressed in a pink Anarkali outfit. “It was a dream-come-true for Madhuri as she always dreamt of doing something like that… She was completely engrossed in it,” the source went on to reveal.
It definitely seems that viewers are in for a treat with the forthcoming season of ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. We’ll have to sit tight until the colourful show begins.
