Madhuri urges women to be 'all in one'

Mumbai, July 9 (IANS) Between film shoots, TV shows, red carpet appearances, and her duty as a wife and mother, actress Madhuri Dixit believes she is managing her personal and professional life quite well. She motivates others to be "all in one" too.

She says this balancing act is a key trait of "modern Indian women".

"Dancer, actor, mother, wife all these roles, I have lived in one life. All in one is the mantra of the modern Indian women," the 46-year-old tweeted.

Madhuri, who is known as the dancing queen of silver screen, is credited for her moves in songs like "Humko aaj kal hai", "Dhak dhak", "Ek do teen", "Que sera sera", "Kaahe chhed mohe" and "Aaja nachle".

She took a break from showbiz when she married US-based surgeon Sriram Nene and shifted to Denver from Mumbai to start a family. Now she is back in tinsel town and judges celebrity participants on dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6".

She is also ready for her new innings in Bollywood with two films - Anubhav Sinha's "Gulaab Gang" and Vishal Bhardwaj's "Dedh Ishqiya". On the big screen, she was last seen dancing to "Ghagra" alongside Ranbir Kapoor in "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".

'Vicky Donor' saas-bahu team back in 'Bajatey Raho'

Veteran actresses Kamlesh Gill and Dolly Ahluwalia, whose fun and quirky chemistry as the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law respectively worked well for "Vicky Donor", will be seen together again in "Bajatey Raho".

Dolly says she was "very excited" when "Bajatey Raho" director Shashant Shah told her of Kamlesh's presence in the film.

"The roles that both Kamlesh ji and Dolly ji are executing in this film are specifically cut out for them. They both are superbly talented and super fun to work with," he said.
