Geeta 'filmy' Basra, a self proclaimed Bollywood buff and the biggest Madhuri Dixit fan ever continues to be awestruck by Madhuri Dixit even after the no-show of her Aaja Nachle at the box office.
"Whatever be the fate of the film, I don't really care", says Geeta who seduced audience with her act in The Train earlier this year. "For me, it was a dream come true to watch a Madhuri Dixit film in Mumbai, especially after seeing all her films in UK, my home country."
"Moreover, the film worked for me. Yes, there is bound to be bias at my end since I have been her fan since my childhood but then that's obvious, isn't it", she questions. "Each and every dance step of hers made the film so special for me. I was thrilled to see her carry herself so gracefully while playing her part in such an elegant manner."
Reflecting on the fact that the film was unable to connect with the audience, Geeta says, "Maybe majority of the audiences still have that romantic image of hers in mind. If there was a bona fide male lead alongside her with her comeback vehicle being centered on a love story, acceptance of that film may have been much higher."
"However, these are just ifs and buts. For me, Aaja Nachle would remain special regardless of it's fate. I have been a Madhuri fan and would continue to do so. I was awed when I saw her on the big screen. Now I am eagerly waiting to see what her next film would be all about."
On the professional front, Geeta is keeping the cards close to her chest. After two good back to back performances (The Train, Dil Diya Hai), she is making her moves carefully without signing multiple projects in a rush. In fact, she does have a biggie in her kitty already but is waiting for the producers to make a formal announcement.
Stay tuned as the petite girl makes much more than just her presence felt in 2008 which promises to be an eventful year for the upcoming actress.
