After Deepika-Ranbir-Sonam, it's time for Madhuri

MUMBAI: The Deepika-Ranbir-Sonam dust is just settling down. Come 30 November and the original Bollywood diva is all set to storm her way back.

After a 5-year hiatus, Madhuri Dixit will woo audiences in her comeback vehicle, the Yash Raj Film (YRF) Aaja Nachle.


A lot is at stake both for the actress and the production house, Barring the successful Chak De, YRF has not done too well in 2007.


As for Madhuri, her last release Devdas did well at the box office but the 5-year gap is a long one and to re-claim lost ground she will have to walk the extra mile.


For Aaja Nachle, she has worked hard at knocking off weight that she had accumulated post motherhood. And the hard work shows. She looks like a million bucks in the hoardings and in the trailers.


The theatrical trailers of the film were launched with Laaga Chunari Mein Daag and the teaser was released as early as with Chak de. Her star power is enormous and this is what the banner will be banking on.


The blogging community is gung-ho about her comeback. Eagerly awaiting the film‘s release most of them write they are positively going to catch the film in a theatre.


Talking about her charisma is her Aaja Nachle co-star Divya Dutta. "Looking at her one never felt she had ever gone away. She is the most talented actor in the industry and when one sees her perform she is just super. I was just watching the promos and she looks fantastic. She may have aged biologically but she looks as gorgeous as ever. We had a great time together - cracking jokes, playing dumb charades. When I watched her perform I didn‘t feel she had been away for 5 years. She is as exuberant as ever."


Roping in current favourite Vaibhavi Merchant to design the choreography will add a touch of novelty as Madhuri has more than often jived to Saroj Khan‘s dance moves.

Trade pundits predict that the masses will flock to theatres to have a dekko at their one-time-favourite actress. And this is good news for the film.


YRF spokesperson Monika Bhattacharya says, "The response to the promos has been very good right from the teaser stage."


As her fans await her return, this time around Madhuri may be as anxious as she was with her maiden film. After all she does not want Aaja Nachle to be her swan song.
