Wait, what? Madhuri Dixit plans to step into Nicole Kidman’s shoes?
Yes indeedy! If all goes well, (apparently despite what her spokespeople earlier claimed) Madhuri will be seen in the Indian adaptation of Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge. Choreographer turned director Remo D’souza (who made his debut with F.A.L.T.U.) is working on the script which he’s written keeping Madhuri in mind! If the Dhak Dhak girl does agree then she will be seen in Nicole Kidman’s role romancing her lover at scenic locales.
Just like Nicole, Remo even plans to make her actually sing in the film! She’s already sung a few lines in Devdas, but this time it’ll be a full fledged song. Since Remo is close to the dancing superstar Prabhu Deva, my spy reveals that he might just manage to get the two together!
The last time Madhuri and Prabhu were seen together was in the iconic Que Sera Sera sizzler from Pukar. Man I LOVE that song!
Considering the original had everything from an elephant to a Maharaja in the plot I’m guessing the adaptation won’t really be that big of a stretch! Slap on Madhuri’s 10,000 watt smile and you’re bound to have a winner! (I’m thinking the whole, theatre within a theatre will have a very Dil To Pagal Hai Feel too, hai na?) xoxo
