52-year-old Madhuri Dixit says age should not come in the way of one's talent. "I believe that age cannot and should not restrict someone to dance. Earlier in other dance shows, usually children would participate and the parents would watch the performance as a part of the audience.

"With this show, we are breaking that norm and the whole family gets to participate... from three generations -- the kids, their parents as well as grandparents. This year, we have got so much active participation from the elder generation because they have got encouragement from our first season," Madhuri told IANS.

Asked if she has any interest in exploring her talent as a choreographer, Madhuri told IANS: "Recently, I went to a music reality TV show called 'Rising Star', where I did an impromptu performance…Shankar Mahadevan, one of the judges of the show, was singing a beautiful 'tarana' and I was dancing on that.

Madhuri, who entered the film industry in 1984 and achieved mass popularity with her acting, dancing skills, and eternal beauty. Some of the most memorable films of the actress include Tezaab, Ram Lakhan, Parinda, Dil, Saajan, Beta, Khalnayak, Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Dil To Pagal Hai, Mrityudand, Pukar and Devdas among others.  Madhuri has been associated with reality TV shows in the past. She also ventured into production with the Netflix film 15 August.
