It was not easy for me: Madhuri Dixit on doing Sridevi’s role

Karan Johar’s magnum opus Kalank teaser got unveiled today, March 12. The film stars Madhuri Dixit among other artistes. Not many know that Madhuri got into the shoes of Sridevi after the latter’s demise.  Recalling it how tough it was, Madhuri says, “Firstly, her demise was sad news for us and when I was approached for the role, it was not easy for me. I have immense respect for her. She was a good artist and a good human being too. To step into the role, when you look into it as an actress, it’s a different scenario as you add your own inputs to the character, but we used to remember her on sets as she was a part of the film”

“Once you start working, you have to move on and do your job… I did that, but missed her too,” adds Madhuri. Helmed by Abhishek Verman, it has Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt and Sonakshi Sinha, scheduled for release on April 17.
