Madhuri Dixit discussed her forthcoming movie Maja Ma, which will be available on Prime Video on October 6. On Thursday, the family film’s trailer was released. Madhuri discussed how “90s heroines” are playing more complex parts in movies than their male costars during the launch event.
Madhuri claimed that she enjoys playing characters that promote female emancipation. She has a preference for roles with an essence, the actor stated, using examples from her flicks like Raja, Mrityudand, and Anjaam. She thinks that OTT platforms have made it easier for female actresses to work well into their forties.
“I’ve previously played a mother. But after that, I believe they were unsure of how to treat ladies in this age range. There are no restrictions on how successful the movie can be commercially because of OTT and the types of storylines that are being portrayed. Of course, commercial movies are also evolving. Look at movies with female protagonists, like Badhaai Ho. She was not like a rambunctious 16-year-old girl. Narrative, as well as the audience and storytelling, are all developing. Better content is being consumed by people. Women are the subject of so many stories today. the abundance of excellent opportunities for female actors,” Madhuri Dixit was cited by Indian Express.
Madhuri went on to discuss how female performers from the 1990s are now playing roles that are considerably more sophisticated than those played by male actors. “Na, that’s always the case. Women develop faster than men (laughs). You must consider it using your greater intelligence. I can’t hold the heroes responsible either because they have to sing, dance, and act in commercial movies. Therefore, people are constantly seeking out ways to stay young, which is okay, she said.
“As a woman, I think what I am doing — or what Juhi (Chawla), or what Raveena (Tandon), or anyone of us — is amazing because we are moving forward in life and being true to ourselves on screen as well,” Madhuri further stated.
Anand Tiwari is the director of Maja Ma. Along with Barkha Singh, Srishti Shrivastava, Rajit Kapur, Simone Singh, Sheeba Chaddha, Malhar Thakar, and Ninad Kamat serving as supporting players, it stars Gajraj Rao as Madhuri’s husband. The last time we saw Madhuri was in The Fame Game on Netflix.
