Madhuri Dixit Says The Glamour And Glitz Of The Film Industry Never Interested Or Bothered Her
Speaking about her unequivocal love for her work, the actress said, “What mattered is being in front of the camera, being able to emote and play various characters. Everything else that comes with it is baggage. I mean the glitz and glamour part of it. These things never interested or bothered me. I was just someone in a profession which happens to be acting. My mom encouraged me and gave the right feedback and said when you’re in the limelight people will both praise and criticise you, so don’t let the praise go into your head and the criticism ever disappoint you. Just be true to yourself and your work. That has been the principle of my life.”
Madhuri Dixit is presently shooting for her digital debut with Netflix’s upcoming series which is backed by Karan Johar.
