Madhuri Dixit gets candid about ‘Kalank’ and friendship with late actress Sridevi

Its been four months since the untimely demise of Sridevi, but the actress is very much alive in the hearts of her fans and close ones. For the one last time, we will be able to catch a glimpse of her in Shah Rukh Khan‘s ‘Zero’. Besides this film, the late actress was also roped in for Karan Johar‘s ‘Kalank’, but owing to her demise, actress Madhuri Dixit later stepped into her shoes.

In a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, when Madhuri was asked if her decision for taking up the film was an emotional one, the actress broke down remembering Sridevi and said, “Well, you know I have known Karan for so long and it was (Sridevi’s death) just such an unfortunate thing. We lost such a lovely legend. And I heard the script and I thought, I mean it was all… It was also emotional.” (sic) (Also ReadMadhuri Dixit’s post on her dog’s demise will leave you teary-eyed!)

Further, when the senior journalist asked the actress about her friendship with the late legend, Madhuri added, “Not friends, we didn’t know each other that well. Our lives were running parallel. There were always comparisons, I don’t know why (we were pitted to be rivals). It was just that we were so busy, we used to do three-three shifts at that time, forget us being friends even my mom I rarely saw. It was very hard at that time, all the actors and actresses were busy all the time. But somehow because of that, there’s always a presence in each other’s lives. We made Pukaar, which was Boneyji’s film. ” (sic)
