Her career took a backseat after her wedding, but Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit is seriously thinking about fulfilling her dream of opening a chain of dance schools across the world.
“I don’t have an immediate, ready plan to open my dance school, but I really want to do something like that and hopefully, god willing, I will do it,” Madhuri told IANS.
“The plans are in my head right now. It will be multi-genre school where various dance forms will be taught. I am speaking as if everything is ready… but it is my dream. If I do it, it will be everywhere,” she added.
After shifting base to Denver following her wedding in 1999 to Shriram Nene, the 43-year-old kept in touch with her dance through practice sessions at home.
“I started practising my kathak there and that’s something that gave me a lot of joy,” said the trained Kathak dancer.
Now the actress has two children – Arin, 7 and Ryan, 5, and she wants to wait for some more time to put her plans for the dance school in place.
“My children are really young right now. When I get some more time… I will focus on the dance school,” she said.
As of now, she is enjoying her stint on Sony TV’s “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4″ as a judge along with actress Malaika Arora Khan and choreographer Remo D’Souza, and maintains that she doesn’t miss the glitzy cinema life when she is back home.
“I miss Mumbai for the energy of the city and because there are a lot of friends in the city. I miss my craft sometimes but I don’t miss the other stuff that goes with Bollywood because I was never part of it.
“I have enjoyed every moment of my life – have never had any regrets. I am glad I took a break for my children because I wanted to be with them in their formative years,” said Madhuri.
