Madhuri Dixit getting too expensive for producers
Ever since Madhuri Dixit has moved back to India, she has been approached by a lot of people to star in their films, but she is taking it easy. She is reportedly signed for Vishal Bhradwaj’s film Dedh Ishqiya, but an official confirmation is yet to come. But besides that Madhuri Dixit still hasn’t signed a single film.
But the latest is that Madhuri shocks many by demanding 5 crore as a deal for a movie, which is an amount quoted by the latest Bollywood stars like Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan who are ruling the box office.
Though she has been refusing roles to act in movies citing reason that she might have to miss her family and her sons, this salary quote makes people wonder. The sources say, it’s clear that the dhak dhak girl wants to let people know that she is no less than any of the top actress, and signing her on will be “expensive”.
Madhuri Dixit's comeback in 2007 Aaja Nachle was a big bomb at the box office. Though she has given major hits before, during the time she ruled box office, demanding such a money at the age of 40 plus comes as surprise to many.
Madhuri Dixit is looking for women-oriented roles, and that any one could say is a huge monetary risk. In Bollywood female-centric films are a rarity. An added problem is that Madhuri also wants central roles in films. She is not looking for maa, bhabhi or behen kinda roles. This probably could be the reason why she has refused films like Anil Kapoor’s remake of Freaky Friday, in which he wanted Madhuri to play the role of Sonam Kapoor’s mom, and the remake of Satte Pe Satta that ultimately went to Karisma Kapoor.
Right now,Madhuri is busy with endorsing beauty and food brands as she has signed on several endorsement deals over the past few months.
