Madhuri Dixit: It's good that dance-based films are being made
Actress Madhuri Dixit is happy to see that dance-based films are being made in India and is looking forward to choreographer-director Remo D'Souza's sequel of "ABCD" movie.
Madhuri, 47, has been judging dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" with Remo.
"It is good that such (dance) films are made. Remo is doing good work... he is fantastic. I am looking forward to his next film - 'ABCD' sequel... it's in 3D so I am quite excited," she told reporters here at an event.
The dancing diva, who loves Kathak, says she dances in her free time.
Her all-time favourite dancers from Bollywood are noted actresses Waheeda Rehman, Helen, Vyjayanthimala, and actors Hrithik Roshan and Shahid Kapoor.
Madhuri was speaking at the launch of 'Dance with Madhuri' Version 2.0, a dancing tutorial website. Her husband Dr Sriram Nene was also present at the event alongwith director Subhash Ghai, ace choreographers Saroj Khan and Terence Lewis, actor Jackie Shroff and others.
"I have worked with Sarojji, Terence... Maharaj (Pandit Birju Maharaj), the art that they have comes once in a millennium. I wish to take dance at every doorstep. I am very excited about 'Dance with Madhuri'," she said.
'Dance with Madhuri' is an e-learning platform that allows people to easily learn dance, move to stay fit and seamlessly unite and connect with the world to create a marketplace for their skills. There are lessons crafted to detail by gurus like Pt Birju Maharaj, Saroj Khan, Terence Lewis, Remo and others.
On the occasion, Nene said they intend to reach more number of people through 'Dance with Madhuri'.
"Through this we are making people learn dance in their own comfort zone. We want to encourage users to dance to stay fit. I am a fan of art...culture I can dance, but I am not a professional," he added.
