Veteran actress Madhuri Dixit, who got a lot of fame and popularity in Bollywood, hasn’t cast the shadow of her popularity on her sons. Arin and Raayan (sons) aren’t yet affected by their mother’s stardom.
Madhuri is raising both her children in Mumbai with her doctor husband Shriram Madhav Nene. However, children get excited to see her mother on TV.
“I have no idea if they understand it and I like it that way. I want them to be as innocent as possible. Even today they come running to me and say that mom you are on TV. My little one comes to me and says, ‘really are you that famous’. But they are untouched by it and that’s the way I like it,” she said.
Madhuri is judging the current season of a dance reality show on TV along with the choreographer-director Remo D’Souza and filmmaker Karan Johar.
The prolific dancer herself wants youngsters to take up classical dancing as it is close to the Indian culture. “There is more of western dancing coming in because I think today youth wants everything fast and it is easier to learn. Our classical is where the whole treasure lies. Once you learn classical you can learn any form of dance. So I think it is very important to have that base. I would urge people to learn more classical,” she added.
Madhuri has two projects in hand currently, Dedh Ishqiya and Gulaab Gang.
