Madhuri Dixit: I don't have friends in Bollywood

By Rachana Sheth, Glamsham Editorial

Being in the industry for around 30 years, it is well expected that Bollywood's dancing diva Madhuri Dixit, who is gearing up for GULAAB GANG, must be having a bunch of friends from the industry to hang out with. But the dainty actress quite surprisingly, and rather shockingly admitted that she doesn't have any close pals from the industry to fall back upon!


Elaborating further, she said, "Well, I don't have friends in Bollywood, 'the 4.am friends' so to say...nothing like that, because everybody is so busy in their own lives. Everybody is busy doing movies either outdoors or in the interiors. But I am sure other actors must be having their own set of friends."

"I remember when I started out, I never went to parties and all. Where partying is a norm in Bollywood, I used to feel uncomfortable and out of place. I used to enter from one door saying 'hello' to everyone and leave from the next door. So, I don't have enough friends within the industry, but I definitely have pals outside of it, who I am comfortable with and enjoy their company, "she added in the same breath.

But isn't networking and having friends important in today's scenario?

"I wasn't networking when I was offered GULAAB GANG or DEDH ISHQIYA. That came to me on the strength of my abilities, because I have talent to play these roles. And filmmakers know that when I do a film, I am very committed to the role. I am well-disciplined. So my reputation precedes me and that's why makers come to me with the scripts. And not because they are my friends," said Madhuri with a puckered brow.

Also starring Juhi Chawla, GULAAB GANG is all set to hit the screens on March 7, 2014.
