Former numero uno Bollywood actress, Denver homemaker and mother of two sons Madhuri Dixit is back after a five-year break with a film centered on her forte - dancing.

``It makes me a little nervous whether people will accept me again,'' Madhuri said ahead of the worldwide release of her new movie Aaja Nachle on November 30. ``It makes me nervous, but I'm excited.''

Madhuri plays a choreographer who after a decade in New York returns to India to save her dance teacher's school from being razed for a more lucrative development.

Madhuri was last seen on the big screen in 2002, when she played a courtesan in Devdaas . After that, she took a break from acting to raise her two sons with husband Shriram Nene, a surgeon, in Denver, Colorado.

Madhuri, 42, said that moving to the United States was a refreshing change from her fishbowl existence in India, where she could never walk down a street or shop at a corner store.

Her brown eyes sparkled when she laughed and said that her anonymity was short-lived due to a large presence of Indians in the United States.

South Asian parents at her son's preschool soon began to recognize her, and curious American neighbors sought DVDs of her old movies.

``It's a novelty for them to know someone famous in India because they meet other Indians who tell them, ``Oh, we are great fans, could you please get us an autograph,''' Madhuri said in an interview in Mumbai on Thursday. ``The curiosity is very positive.''

Madhuri said she missed her acting career at times, but not the celebrity that went with it.

``Well, I missed my craft, Madhuri said. ``I've never been part of the other paraphernalia that comes with it.''

Madhuri, now slimmer, fitter and more radiant than in her younger days, said she is open to more movies as long as she can juggle her children's schedules with work.

``Another movie depends on a lot of factors - on my kids, how I manage it, where they are going to shoot,'' Madhuri said.

``I don't want to compromise my kids in any way. I have to make sure they are comfortable before I take up any assignment."
