Mumabi, Dec 23 (IANS) Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit is back in the thick of things shooting not only for the dance reality show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ that brought her back to India this time, but also an endorsement for which she has apparently been paid an unheard-of price.
According to reliable sources, Madhuri and her old business manager Rakesh Nath (Rikku) have finalised at least three other endorsements that would keep the actress busy for a good part of January.
When contacted Rikku, who has looked after Madhuri’s career from the start, admits Madhuri’s endorsement plans.
‘She is at this very moment shooting for an endorsement campaign for Hindustan Lever product. Other endorsements are being finalised. Meetings are on,’ he said.
The buzz in the film industry is that Madhuri is determined to make a comeback in movies.
Apparently Yash Raj Films, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Karan Johar and UTV have come up with tempting offers. Madhuri is on the verge of signing one of these.
‘You’re right. She has got four-five very good offers. She will definitely do another film soon. But this time we have to be very careful. I’ve worked with other actresses, but Madhuriji is Madhuriji,’ said Nath.
The diva seems more than happy keeping busy at home away from her adopted home.
‘I’m having a ball. I am so glad people have liked me on ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. I am enjoying this busy phase before the camera,’ said Madhuri who is married to US-based doctor Sriram Nene and has two sons with him.
Her children are expected to join her this week for Christmas holidays.
‘I can’t wait to see them,’ said Madhuri happily before rushing for her next shot.
