Mumbai: The super hit actress of 90’s Madhuri Dixit recently announced she is moving back to India for good. This sparked all sorts of rumours and speculations. The rumour mills speculated reasons from, her marriage being on the rocks to the recession.
In a recent interview with a daily she cleared the air and put an end to all the rubbish rumours doing the rounds. On being asked if her decision was due to the recession, she cleared, “Not at all. We have been fortunate enough not to be affected by it at all. Ram, is a doctor and he`s in a profession that`s always going to be much in demand. There have been so many unfortunate families who have been affected by recession and are going through hard times but we are fine.
Truth is, Ram has always been fascinated by India and his heart always remained there whenever he`s come to Mumbai. He wants to see the Howrah Bridge in Kolkata, Shimla in Himachal Pradesh, the Charminar in Hyderabad and the Ajmer Shariff dargah in Rajasthan as he`s heard so much about them.”
But she has been based in Denver, USA for almost 10 years since her marriage now. When asked why she decided to take this sudden step she said, “It was not a sudden decision nor was it brewing for a long time. I think it was our destiny. When we thought about it we felt maybe it`s a good move and everything in life happens in its own time. I have a house in Juhu and we will be staying there.”
She does not plan to sell their beautiful house in Denver and feels world has become a small place so moving to and forth between places is not much of an ordeal anymore. But she admits moving back will be an emotional and psychological transition for her kids and for them family as a whole.
“Shifting from one country to another is physically and emotionally taxing. Right now, I am packing our stuff so we can come back in October. There`s a whole gamut of emotions I am going through and there is a lot of packing to do... I have been here for 10 years and have friends here. We had two cats but both passed away last year. The kids are having mixed emotions - they are sad about leaving their best friends behind in the US but are excited as India is a different environment,” she added.
As of the plans for her career she feels kids are her priority but she would surely consider working, so her fans probably wish to see her in the films once again.
She chuckled conclusively by saying, “I will do something that makes me happy and excites me. Kids will always be my priority. I will never be so busy that I don`t have time to look after them.”
