Madhuri Dixit is all set to return to the silver screen after four years with Total Dhamaal in which she will be seen opposite Anil Kapoor after a gap of 18 years. Her last appearances were in the movies Dedh Ishqiya and Gulaab Gang, both of which released in 2014.
Though Madhuri is a popular actress and there is a demand for her, reports claim that the actress has been turning down many offers which came her way.
Talking about it, a source stated, “Though she is being approached by filmmakers with interesting roles, the minute she hears that she has to play a mother, Madhuri turns them down. She feels that her fans want to see her paired with the Khans: Shah Rukh, Aamir and Salman. A few years ago, when Anil offered her the part of Sonam’s mom in a film based on Freaky Friday, she had refused saying it didn’t appeal to her, and she also didn’t want to play a mother. She probably thinks that she should be getting the kind of roles younger actresses are doing.”
Another source also added, “Madhuri is also struck by the Juhi, Karisma and other 90’s actresses syndrome who break into cold sweat at the thought of having to play screen moms, but she is not going to get the same roles that Alia is being offered just because their manager is the same!”
The timeless beauty is looking younger than ever but she’s past the stage of playing the doe-eyed heroine.
