Madhuri Dixit Nene recently returned to the small screen with So You Think You Can Dance on &TV. The dancing diva was a judge on the reality show and she says that she was very excited when she was approached because “I had seen it when I was living in the US… I was more than delighted to do it.”
However, she had one condition. “I was clear we are not going to do any drama, plan who is going to say what; everything is spontaneous, unscripted.”As the show was a weekly, it also gave her time to “do other things, be with my kids.”
While you may remember her judging Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa earlier, that was not her first reality show. That honour goes to Kahin Na Kahin Koi Hai, a matchmaking show on Sony. The show aired in 2002, way before reality TV was a thing in India, she points out. “I have always followed my heart, done what I want to do when I want to do,” she said. Way to go, Mads!
