Madhuri Dixit to return to India by Diwali
Revealing her return plans, the actress, whose thousand watt smile is still a craze among her fans, posted on Twitter, "Excited! Should be back in Mumbai by middle of October.”
Post marriage to Dr. Shriram Nene, the B-town queen had left the country to settle down with her husband in the States.
After being happily married for all these years, the actress, who is a mother of two now, has given her fans and well wishers the best of surprises by announcing her plans of settling down in India with her hubby and kids.
Kids need to discover their roots – Madhuri
When grilled with questions about what made her take such a decision, Madhuri stated that she and her spouse want to bring up their kids in India so that they can know more about their motherland and learn the celebrated Indian culture.
Citing the reason behind returning to India, the actress said, “We had been toying with the idea for quite some time. We think maybe this is the right time. The kids need to discover their roots.
“India is growing into a formidable power. It's become the new land of opportunities. My husband and I felt there's so much we can do back home. Whether it's in our profession or on a humanitarian level, we feel there's a lot that we can contribute to our own lives and to society.”
Madhuri: Sriram loves India and Indian food
Madhuri’s decision to return to Mumbai may be beneficial for her acting career, but her better half, Dr. Nene might find it a little difficult to start afresh and adjust to the Indian work culture.
However, when Madhuri was asked if her husband was happy with the return plans, the actress stated that Mr. Nene loved India and Indian cuisine, so though he may face some issues initially, gradually all will be fine for him too.
“For him (her husband), it's going to be a little more difficult. Sriram loves India and Indian food. He had it in the back of his mind that one day we'd return. But so far we didn't act on it.
“….The change is far more drastic for him. The work ethics, the environment, everything would be different for him. But he is very Indian at heart. He makes friends very easily. And he's very skilled at his profession. I don't think there should be a problem,” Madhuri told reporters.
