Madhuri Dixit and Renuka Shahane won hearts in their role of sisters in Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’ (1994). Now, 23 years later, Dixit and Shahane are reuniting in a Marathi film, where Dixit is debuting.
Mumbai Mirror reports director Tejas Vijay Deoskar saying, “It’s a slice-of-life story with a dash of humor which a lot of people will be able to identify with. Unlike HAHK, Madhuri and Renuka are not related in our film but are connected through the narrative.”
An excited Shahane also said, “Tejas used to make documentary films and had approached me years ago. Things didn’t work out then but we kept in touch. One day, he came to me with this film. After I came on board, I was told that Madhuri is playing the lead. I was thrilled to know that, because I had hoped for the longest time that she’d do a Marathi film. This is the perfect subject for her. We come from a similar background. Her mom would be on the sets and I would chat with her in Marathi. Back then, working with huge stars was unnerving for me, but we shared a warm relationship and all credit goes to Madhuri. She is down-to-earth and professional. I always say that if you get a chance to work with Madhuri, you should offer money to the producer for the opportunity. We have so many things in common still. Both of us are married, have two boys in the same age group….We spoke about everything, from quantum physics to motherhood.”
Dixit was last seen in ‘Gulaab Gang’ (2014).
