According to Madhuri Dixit, there used to be “few” excellent parts for women in Bollywood.

With the upcoming family comedy Maja Ma, Madhuri Dixit is making a comeback to the big screen. Gajraj Rao, Ritwik Bhowmik, Barkha Singh, and Srishti Shrivastava are also featured in the upcoming movie. The cast of the movie, which includes Madhuri, came together for a conversation with Hindustan Times to discuss the experience of making it, Madhuri’s dance, and why there are so few films with strong female roles.

Pallavi Patel, a middle-class woman whose life is flipped upside down as a result of a secret she kept hidden, is played by Madhuri in Maja Ma. In her Netlfix show The Fame Game, the actor most recently took on the role of another mysterious persona. Speaking of the prominence of rich, multifaceted female characters in contemporary movies,

These kinds of roles are currently being written, according to Madhuri. And it just makes me happy when folks offer me these. There is a lot to do because their characters have so many layers. I like these jobs because they are demanding, and the more intricate the character, the more difficult it is. Since that’s what every artist wants, I don’t think I’ll ever stop performing them. That’s what you truly want to get your teeth into when your dream is presented to you. It’s amazing for me to say I’m filming for this movie every day when I get out of bed.

“There were so many outstanding women, but there weren’t enough roles,” she claims. Since they are currently being written, everyone of these performers have the opportunity to showcase their talents in each of these roles. Right now, women in film are experiencing a fantastic era.

The movie, which is set over the holiday season, has a lot of singing and dancing, especially in a garba song where Madhuri shakes a leg with her co-stars. They all acknowledge that it was quite difficult to do so. When asked to explain his experience dancing with Madhuri, Ritwik Bhowmik, Madhuri’s on-screen son, describes it as “nerve-wracking.” I’m dancing for a section of the song based on the poem, says Barkha Singh, who plays Ritwik’s love interest in the movie.

I recall being really anxious even for that section, though, as I am not a trained dancer. I didn’t want ma’am and the others to have to undo anything because of me. I had to practise in costume so I arrived an hour and a half before my call time. I was instructed to get ready and refrain from dancing in the sun. But I insisted that I had to do this correctly. Even the choreographer agreed to collaborate with me for a while. That much of a deal meant a lot to me.

Madhuri is among the most talented dancers Bollywood has ever produced. Nevertheless, Maja Ma provided her the chance to try something new—first-time garba dancing. She acknowledges feeling anxious about it. She continues, “There are still nerves because there are lots of expectations, and expectations come with obligations. You must ensure that you give it your all, add as much pzazz as possible to the style, and learn how to do it correctly. People who do garba every season put a lot of effort into their performances. In India, every style is incredibly unique. I must therefore take great care to possess the necessary lachak (flexibility) and flair.

Tara, played by Srishti Shrivastava, is Madhuri’s daughter. The actor, a well-known figure on YouTube and in online series, is currently establishing herself in mainstream Hindi movies. “I think people get where I am coming from, which is theatre and a lot of auditions and work,” the performer says while reflecting on her path thus far. From a relatively little role, it progressed to better, meatier roles. Fortunately, I’ve worked with incredible directors who have given me the freedom to express myself and find the role that seems right to me. I therefore never felt uncomfortable anywhere.

Ritwik claims that the role and, of course, the performers were what ultimately led him to accept the picture. It’s a classic hero position with more subtlety, in my opinion. Since I genuinely wanted to be a part of this movie, I had no choice but to say. I’m really appreciative. Better things couldn’t have been provided for me.

On October 7, Anand Tiwari’s Maja Ma will be available on Prime Video. It marks Madhuri’s first return to the big screen since Gulaab Gang in 2014 and her first leading part on a major motion picture since Kalank three years ago.
