Madhuri Dixit wants to make Sridevi proud.
Madhuri’s character Bahaar Begum in the movie ‘Kalank’ was originally going to be played by the late Sridevi.
Last year though, after Sridevi passed away, Karan Johar offered the role to Madhuri.
Madhuri talked about stepping into the shoes of the character, and admitted in an interview with Mid-Day: “I don’t want to let her down.”
‘Kalank’ is set in pre-independent India and focuses on an elite family and many of its hidden truths that begin to unfold as tensions rise and partition nears.
The movie is Madhuri’s second project this year.
She is currently basking in the success of ‘Total Dhamaal’ which also stars Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, and Riteish Deshmukh.
