I kept away from industry's politics: Madhuri Dixit

New Delhi, December 07:

Bollywood dancing diva Madhuri Dixit made her silver screen debut 28 back with "Abodh" and since then there has no looking back. The "Dhak dhak" girl says she has always enjoyed her work and tried to keep herself away from the politics of the industry.

"Being number one or number two never bothered me. I did not believe in all that. I had this in mind that whenever I go on the sets, I have to give my best. Whenever I gave a good shot, that was a special moment for me.

"I never got into the politics of the industry. I was always kept away from it and enjoyed being being part of it," Madhuri said at the Agenda Aaj Tak held here Friday.

She was the guest speaker at a session during the event.

Madhuri became a name to reckon with after her performance in superhits like "Tezaab", "Ram Lakhan", "Tridev", "Dil", "Saajan", "Khalnayak", "Hum Aapke Hain Koun", "Dil To Pagal Hai" and "Devdas".

With some many good films and commendable performances to her credit, the 45-year-old still looks the same and has always been very down to earth. The actress says its her family that has helped her to be like that.

"My family, their values and education have kept me grounded. I am not a frog in the well. There is a life outside the industry and I have always been very curious about it. I love meeting people and talking to them. For me it is not about 'I, me and myself'," she added.

Madhuri married Shriram Chandra Nene on Oct 17, 1999 and moved to the US. Post-marriage, Madhuri worked in just "Aaja Nachle", which didn't do so well. But her stint as the judge on dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" gave her a chance to reconnect with her fans.

After the success of the show, Madhuri shifted base here with her husband and sons from the US in October last year.

Now she will be seen back on the silver screen in Vishal Bhardwaj's "Dedh Ishqiya" and Anubhav Sinha's "Gulab Gang".

Talking about the kind of films being made nowadays, Madhuri said: "Some years back there was a demarcation of art films and commercial cinema but now it is not like that. Now the lines are quite blurred. Realistic films are made now and there are no over the top characters. Also the audiences have matured."
