“My husband and I go dancing on date nights,” says Madhuri Dixit

Filed under: What's new — Rajeev @ 12:49 pm


Bollywood’s original Dancing Queen Madhuri Dixit may have given up movies for marriage and motherhood, but she still finds ways to remain connected with her greatest passion, dancing. Currently in India to judge a dance reality show on television, Madhuri remains the final word on anything related to the art form. In this interview she talks about dancing dates with her husband Dr Nene, and whether her sons have inherited her dancing genes. She also reveals what she thinks of the current crop of dancing stars, and settles the debate once and for all on which one’s better – Sheila ki jawani or Munni badnaam hui.

(This interview first aired on CNN-IBN)


  1. Just love Madhuri’s interview, always so diplomatic and down to earth. And that smile.

  2. Awesome interview and wonderful answers. Even I believe that no matter how much the gap between nation decreases still somewhere you’ll always find your own nation closer to your heart. Love the fact that Madhuri is still attached to her route values & culture, afterall they form a vital part of your identity. Thanks for the amazing chit-chat. Love Madhuri <3

  3. This interview was wonderful! I am a Indian Cinema newbie and I actually watched Aaja Nachle last night. Madhuri’s dancing leaves me breathless! I haven’t felt that way in a long time! The first time I saw her dance was in the movie “Devdas” (I think this is the first movie EVERYONE is introduced to when seeing Indian Cinema for the first time), and I watched Marr Dala and Dola Re Dola over and over. In Aaja Nachle, the little nuances that she puts into her moves in “Show Me Your Jalwa” just floor me! And the emphasizes the beats, what grace! I have already started my collection of her movies and I want to say Thank You, Madhuri for sharing with this simple Westerner the beauty and art form of Indian dance!

  5. Good One. She remains the most talented amongst the Indian Actresses till date. Also its good to see how she keeps her priorities in life, in today’s world when people do anything for 5 minutes of fame…

  6. The only reason one would want to invent a time machine is to get Madhuri Dixit back to movies.
