Madhuri Dixit has the best of both worlds!
Mumbai: The dhak dhak girl might have embraced matrimony and settled down in foreign shores, but Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit makes a flutter every time she makes a dash in B-Town.
Madhuri, who quit films after two decades of superstardom is married Dr Sriram Nene and has two lovely kids. Last seen in Delhi Couture Week, Madhuri said that she is happy with her two lives – one as a celebrity and other as a homemaker.
Talking to a daily, the actress with a million dollar smile said, “It`s something I have gotten used to, this coming in and going out. After the show-sha of this place, I like going back to the peace and quiet of my family. Don`t get me wrong – I like both worlds. I enjoy being anonymous and I enjoy being centre-stage too. When I go there, the mom takes over. But when I am here, I am just the actress.”
Apparently, Madhuri knows how to shift gears between her two worlds as she revealed, “Nothing changes. Once I reach there, it`s all about my children and family. It`s everyday. I become a complete mom. My kids have to go to school at eight, so I have to wake up early. I don`t have time to think about anything else. The only thought is getting the kids up on time, picking them from school at three, getting their homework done and then having dinner. Then it`s the same cycle again the next day. Except the weekends, when it`s different. On school days, they don`t want to wake up on time and on a holiday, they wake up at six and say, `Mom, I`m hungry!`”
Actually, Madhuri maintains that her family life is absolutely normal, but there are times when star-struck neighbours remind her past glory: “Yes, the neighbours do ask me about my work. Sometimes I show them clippings if they are interested. They see the clips on the internet too. And the American guys are very kicked about it – that they know a celebrity. And then there`s a flurry of people who knock on the door or come and meet me for a while.”
When enquired whether she is a part of Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Dedh Ishqiya,’ the actress quipped, “I have done a movie in the past too, but if I do that again, I have to make sure that everyone in my family is comfortable and I have to manage that.”
