Mumbai, May 25 -- Pandit Birju Maharaj and Madhuri Dixit have had a long standing professional relationship. The classical dancer choreographed her songs in Devdas (2002) and Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), and he recently directed a mujra for her upcoming film Dedh Ishqiya.
The dancing legend is also happy that in spite of living in the US for so many years, Madhuri has ensured that her kids have a deep connect with their country and enrolled them for tabla lessons.
"I have met both her sons (Arin and Ryan) and am happy that the kids are learning to play the tabla, which is a big deal," says Birju Maharaj. Talking about their personal rapport, the veteran dancer says, "We share a lovely relationship; it's like family. Whenever she cooks anything, she gives it to me with a lot of love ki guruji ye khaiye woh khaiye (Guruji eat this and that)."
