Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit , who makes a comeback to the silver screen after five years with Aaja Nachle , says that marriage doesn't end anyone's career.

''I never thought that marriage ends anyone's career. I got married, I never thought I was going to leave films or I am going to give up anything. I got married and had kids and so I had to take that break.

''And when I found a good script and the time to do it, then I said yes, went ahead and I did it. But I don't think marriage should end anybody's career,'' Madhuri told NDTV in an interview.

During the interview, given to Pranab Roy, a glowing Madhuri spoke about her life in America, her kids, her take on Bollywood and her favourite actors.

The interview is to be telecast tonight at 2200 hrs and repeat telecast on December 2 at 1000 hrs.

Looking fit, young and vibrant, Madhuri was all praise for the Khan trio -- Shah Rukh Khan , Aamir Khan and Salman Khan -- the reigning superstars, with whom she paired while she was the indubitable empress of Bollywood.

''Shah Rukh Khan is full of energy and he is someone you can talk to on any topic in the world as he has a lot to say and he knows about a lot of stuff. He is not just a one-sided kind of personality, he is very rounded. He knows about everything; from computers to anything you have. He is very intelligent and has a lot of ideas, and I like the way he comes up with all these ideas and that he is never sitting still.''

About Aamir, Madhuri said she had done just two films with him and enjoyed working with the actor. ''He is a very good actor and is always energetic. Aamir is slightly different from others; he takes his time and wants to make everything sure. He is very methodic and likes to do things in his own way. So that makes him very different.''

Madhuri was also full of praises for Salman. ''I have worked with Salman and he is also a good actor. You never know with him, when he is on the sets, whether he is paying attention to what you are doing, but he just carries the roles so well. When it comes to the work, he knows what he is doing.''

Asked whether she wanted to act in Hollywood, Madhuri said: ''Not really, not yet. Though, I was asked for a few projects. There was a serial called 'West Wing' and they had something in there. But I could not do it, because I was pregnant with my second son at that time and so I said, sorry.''

Asked about kissing on screen, Madhuri quipped: ''No, No, No. And that's a personal choice. I don't know, if it's an Indian thing or not. I won't be comfortable you know. No, I don't have anything against it. It's ok, you know. But not now...no.''

About her family and life in America, Madhuri said it was just wonderful. ''Everybody has dreams about what they are going to do and their ambitions and so on. For me, because we come from a big family, where we are four siblings and grew up together, family has been very important to me. Family was a big part of my dream that I dreamt for myself. Having my own family, having kids, and stuff like that.''

Madhuri said she was living in a place where the mountains were just 90 minutes away. ''We go to the mountains and get my son to ski. My husband skies very well. So, this winter, I am thinking that I am going to learn skiing.''

To a query whether she would allow her sons to become actors, Madhuri said she would not mind.

''I wouldn't mind if my kids want to be actors, they can be actors; if they want to be doctors, they can be doctors and even if they want to do a 9 to 5 job and say I am happy doing this.''

Madhuri said her husband is ''very relaxed and very chilled out''.

''He loves sport and the outdoors and there is lot of mountain biking that we do together and we go snorkeling and we do all that kind of stuff. We don't get to party a lot because he is on call every other day, but we still have fun with our kids when we go out.''
