Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit, who replaced actress Vidya Balan in ‘Ishqiya’ sequel ‘Dedh Ishqiya’, said that she not only admires Vidya Balan’s work but said that she was also the first to talk about Vidya Balan and her tremendous talent.
Vidya Balan won accolades for her sensuous and convincing performance as a scheming and sensual woman in ‘Ishqiya’.
“Vidya is wonderful. She is a lovely actress and I not only liked her in 'Ishqiya'. I also liked her in her first movie (Parineeta),” said Madhuri Dixit to IANS.
“I was the first one who talked about her in an interview, saying she is a good actress. I loved her in ‘Dirty Picture’ and ‘Kahaani’. She is very talented,” added Madhuri Dixit.
Madhuri Dixit is making a comeback on big screen with ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ after 7 long years.
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is a sequel to 2010 super hit movie ‘Ishqiya’, which starred Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah.
‘Dedh Ishqiya’ is a romantic saga of individuals who are caught amidst love, compassion and deceit. The movie will see Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah move from Gorakhpur (where ‘Ishqiya’ was set) to Lucknow and meet a highly cultured Muslim family that includes Madhuri Dixit and Huma Qureshi.
The movie will release on January 10.
