Madhuri Dixit opens up on dancing and age restriction


New Delhi, Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit Nene, a judge on reality TV show “Dance Deewane” — which will have talent from three different age groups competing for a title — says age should not come in the way of one’s talent.

The show, in its second season, has ‘Yahan deewangi nahi kisi ki kam… Dekhenge kis generation mein hai Dum’ as its core philosophy.

It’s a family show by all means, said Madhuri.

“I believe that age cannot and should not restrict someone to dance. Earlier in other dance shows, usually children would participate and the parents would watch the performance as a part of the audience.

“With this show, we are breaking that norm and the whole family gets to participate… from three generations — the kids, their parents as well as grandparents. This year, we have got so much active participation from the elder generation because they have got encouragement from our first season,” Madhuri told.

She will be one of the judges alongside filmmaker Shashank Khaitan and dancer choreographer Tushar Kalia, on the show which will go on air on Colors starting June 15
