Return of the diva
The wait is over! Here is the first official poster of Dedh Ishqiya starring the one and only Madhuri Dixit. The actress strikes the pose of a dancer, hiding her face with a flimsy dupatta in the first look.
Talking about Madhuri Dixit's character, director Abhishek Chaubey says, “It was a role written exclusively for Madhuri. She plays the Begum. Vidya's character had nothing left in it to take the story forward. So there was no way that I could've included her in 'Dedh Ishqiya'”.
Madhuri Dixit plays Begum Para in the film, and has a very strong character with many layers. She will also get to show her dancing skills as is evident from the first look. The famous Kathak exponent Pandit Birju Maharaj has choreographed some of the dance sequences for the film. Dedh Ishqiya also has a distinct Lucknowi feel to it. It also features some steamy scenes between Naseeruddin Shah and Madhuri.
One of the new posters of the film also introduces Naseeruddin Shah as Madhuri's adorer. The actor looks lovestruck, carrying a rose in his hand.
The response to Madhuri's look is overwhelming. The actress indeed looks ethereal!
Produced by Vishal Bharadwaj, Dedh Ishqiya will release early next year. Can't wait to watch the trailer now.
