Despite nasty rains and a tiresome two-hour wait at Goregaon’s Filmistan Studio, Mirror reader Anushi Chaturvedi was all sunshine. “This is an opportunity of a lifetime; wouldn’t miss it for the world,” she says, minutes before Madhuri Dixit- Nene is to arrive in the dressing room of the studio, where she is shooting for a dance reality show.

Chaturvedi’s favourite is the Salman Khan-Madhuri starrer Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, and admits she had lost count of the number of times she has watched it. “I even stitched the famous white and green lehenga for a wedding in the family,” she giggles. When the actor walks in, wearing a red anarkali and donning kundan jewellery, her 25-year-old fan confesses she is nervous.

“I think I am going to start crying.” “I don’t know how to react,” Dixit-Nene smiles calmly. “I am like any other human being. Come on, why don’t you tell me something about yourself,” she asks Chaturvedi. The mass media lecturer at Wilson College smiles shyly when Dixit-Nene says, “Wow, you look rather young to be a lecturer. I thought you were a student.”

The reason Chaturvedi is starry-eyed about the actor is her dancing prowess — baffling for someone with two left feet. “I lack coordination,” she admits sheepishly. “My sister, who’s also a fan, gets upset with me because I imitate your steps so poorly.” “Everybody has a sense of rhythm, but few know how to let go of their inhibitions,” Dixit-Nene reasons.

Do her sons Arin and Rayaan dance as freely as her? “Yes, they love music, and ask me to teach them steps sometimes,” she laughs. “Speaking of ‘teaching dance’,” Chaturvedi says, “I often log on to your website. How did the idea for it come about?” “I love dance; it keeps the soul happy,” says the actor, whose portrayal of a danseuse in Tezaab, Dil to Pagal Hai and Aaja Nachle, showcased her skill. “I’ve been practising kathak since I was eight.

But teaching dance online was actually Shriram’s idea (husband Dr Shriram Nene). I only wanted to take dance to every household. He encouraged me to take it up seriously,” she shares. “Why not launch a dance institute, instead?” asks a curious Chaturvedi. “But that would limit it to a few people,” the actor reasons, flashing her famous smile.

This is the actor’s second innings in the Hindi film industry after she quit to live a life of anonymity with her husband in the US. The reasons to return are many, she says, “But I really wanted my kids to grow up here; life in the US can be insular. It’ll make them well-rounded people. I think I did the right thing,” she says.

In the years she wasn’t around, she says, lots has changed. “Things are professional now. There was no concept of a bound script when I started out; we used to learn our lines on the sets. Neither did we have stylists.

We’d put together our own wardrobe for photo shoots.” For Chaturvedi, the half hour meeting has served another function. It has given her an idea for the next assignment for her students: A profile of Madhuri.
