Madhuri Dixit: 'I'm still relevant'

By
Madhuri Dixit
Madhuri Dixit has said that she is still relevant in today's Bollywood.

The veteran star is currently shooting Gulab Gang, her first film in six years.

She told The Times of India: "We are relevant even today. Talent is always alive, it doesn't die. Look at English Vinglish. It was a wonderful film and Sridevi did it after a gap of 15 years. But that hardly mattered."

Dixit added: "In the '90s, we either made commercial cinema or art cinema. There was a clear demarcation. Today, those lines are blurred. Even now, there is over-the-top commercial cinema that does well.

"But there is also an equal amount of cinema with the right sensibilities and that is truly interesting to watch and be a part of. As for us actresses, this is liberating, because a woman in our films is no more a caricature.

"She is not taking revenge or getting bullied or crying. Today, she is an astronaut, a surgeon, a mother, daughter, a business head and is so much more believable. Our cinema has evolved. Women have different characters on the screen. Roles of substance are being written especially for us."

The 45-year-old actor performed on stage earlier in the month with Ram Lakhan co-star Anil Kapoor.

She moved back to Mumbai last year in a bid to show her US-born children her Indian "roots".
