Madhuri Dixit does not believe in competition

All set to stage a come back in Bollywood with 'Dedh Ishqiya' and 'Gulab Gang', Madhuri Dixit does not believe she has competition on hand with actresses like Karisma Kapoor and Sridevi returning to films after taking long breaks.

Almost after a gap of 15 years, Sridevi made a comeback with 'English Vinglish', which won her accolades while Karisma returned with Vikram Bhatt's 'Dangerous Ishq' last year.

Ask Madhuri if she considers anyone as her competitor in the industry, she says, "I don't know... I have never believed in that. I do what I like and I enjoy doing what I do. All I can say is I do have strong roles in the films that I am doing - 'Gulab Gang' and 'Dedh Ishqiya'. Both the films have nice characters."

'Gulab Gang' is a story of a gang of women fighting against social injustice. The film, directed by Soumik Sen, also stars Juhi Chawla, Mahie Gill, Shilpa Shukla and others.
"I have met Juhi. She is a very sweet person. It has been wonderful experience to work with her," Madhuri said. Madhuri has also signed the sequel of Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Ishqiya', titled 'Dedh Ishqiya'.


Abhishek Chaubey had directed 'Ishqiya', which got great reviews and box office collections. The film was produced by Bharawaj. Even for the sequel the director, producer and lead actors Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi have been retained. "It is an honour to work with him (Naseeruddin), he is a great actor. 'Dedh Ishqiya' will begin from mid-February," Madhuri said.

Post her marriage, Madhuri had relocated to the US for almost a decade. It was in October 2011 that she shifted her base back to Mumbai, alongwith her family. Now that she is back in the film world, Madhuri not only has movies but endorsements also, and she handles it all perfectly. "I think I am a multi-tasker. I can do two-three things at a time. I am strict to myself and even my kids. I take responsibility of my health," she said.

Madhuri was present at the Government dental college in south Mumbai today for an event. "Dental hygiene is very important; people don't take it seriously. Everyone can have a smile like me. And everyone can smile confidently. Your personality looks different," she said, adding that she liked Madhubala's smile the most.
