For Madhuri Dixit dance is more than just an art. It is a device to tap into one's deeper core.

She began dancing at the tender age of two and hasn't stopped till day when she is forty years old and a proud mother of two kids. Madhuri Dixit has shown her nimbleness at dance in many a Bollywood movie. And now she returns to film industry after a hiatus of five years with another dance-based film Aaja Nachle .




What made her accept the film, Madhuri says, was the uncanny resemblance of the movie's story to her real life.

"When Aditya Chopra approached me he told me he had written the script keeping me in mind. And when I read the script, I found many parallels in it to my own life," says Madhuri.

'Aaja Nachle' tells the story of a woman who returns to her small town in India after living many years in the US and finds her dance school in ruins and her guru on a deathbed. Thereafter, she takes it upon herself to revive the culture of dance in the town of her birth.

Not just for her role in the movie, Madhuri in reality believes that dance is a very good way to "tackle stress" and "re-energize oneself" in today's hectic times. And more than that Madhuri believes "dancing awakens spirituality".

So strong is Madhuri's dedication to dance that it has a special place in her future, even though her plan for movies in Bollywood is still tentative.

Yes, the diva says she plans to return to Kathak seriously.

"Getting back to kathak...And when I say that, I mean getting back very seriously. For me, kathak is not a hobby, it's not like I've learnt it for a couple of years or so. For me, it's a part of life," Madhuri is quoted as saying in a media report.

Madhuri also reveals that she has plans to set up a Kathak school someday.

However, for the time being it is 'Aaja Nachle' that is occupying her thoughts.

The film, directed by Anil Mehta, hits the theatres on Friday.
