MUMBAI: This weekend on The Kapil Sharma Show, Bollywood’s romantic and evergreen Jodi-Madhuri Dixit and Anil Kapoor will be gracing the show. Madhuri has a fan-following across age-groups and not just commoners but legends like MF Hussain, Pandit Birju Maharaj have also expressed openly about their admiration for Madhuri. So, on the show Kapil asks Madhuri how it feels when such legends call themselves your fans. Madhuri was a little overwhelmed on hearing this and said, “Both of them-Hussain Saab and Maharaj ji are legends and when they compliment me, I feel humbled and genuinely don’t know how to react because I’m their fan.”
Adding to this, Anil Kapoor who has been friends with Madhuri off-screen as well, shared a very interesting story, “Back in the days, my wife Sunita once mentioned that we have everyone’s painting in our house except for MF Hussain’s. Back then, we couldn’t afford a Hussain Saab’s painting so when I got to know that he has been trying to meet Madhuri, I met him and kind of struck a deal with him told him that I can get you to meet Madhuri but for that you will have to give me one of your paintings. He agreed and gifted me a painting which is a prized possession in my house till date and I give all the credit to Madhuri for it. So, now you know, how I have taken advantage of knowing Madhuri Dixit.”
Their chemistry and comfort was quite evident during the shoot of The Kapil Sharma Show. Even though they will be seen together on-screen after a very long time, their charisma remains intact.
