Mumbai: Ever since ‘dhak dhak’ girl Madhuri Dixit landed in India, Bollywood fell an instant prey to her charms, who flew in from the US to judge ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’.

Apparently, the Khans and Kapoors are dying to work with the lady and the latest entrant to the list of Madhuri lovers in none other than Tamil megastar Rajinikanth.

Buzz has it that Rajinikanth recently called up Madhuri to be a part of his upcoming project ‘Rana’, which the actress politely turned down.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “Besides casting Deepika Padukone and Sonu Sood from Mumbai, Rajni Sir was also keen to have Madhuri Dixit in ‘Rana’. However she turned down the offer. She excused herself saying that she was missing her sons Arin and Raayan too much and wanted to fly back to the United States.”

In ‘Rana’, Rajinikanth will be seen in a triple role. Madhuri was about to be cast opposite one of the older characters that Rajinikanth is playing; while Deepika will be romancing a much younger character.

Madhuri Dixit and Rajinikanth were last seen in ‘Uttar Dakshin’ (1987).

Well, looks like Madhuri still has starry eyed dreams!
