Ever since Madhuri Dixit took the decision to return to India bag and baggage, her husband Dr Shriram Nene has firmly stood by her side. Quite literally, too. The big shift across continents had uprooted her US-bred husband and children.
But the cardiothoracic surgeon from the hospital Rocky Mountain in Denver apparently had no qualms in giving up his medical practice of years and moving to India.
It’s been two years since his arrival in India but surprisingly Dr Nene refrained from taking up a job in Mumbai. While it set off several tongues tattling about his ‘unemployed’ status, Mads’ has maintained that her husband helps her manage her work.
Insiders from the medical industry however say that Dr Nene recently applied and received a license to work in the country from the Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC)
Says a source, “It was a surprise for many as to why Dr Nene was not taking up a job offer from any of the five-star hospitals in town. There were even rumours that he would take up a job at a government hospital. But he recently applied for a license at MMC and the Medical Council of India (MCI) and things could change now.”
