Ace Kathak dancer Birju Maharaj would be choreographing film actress Madhuri Dixit in her forthcoming flick Dedh Ishqiya, currently being shot at Sitapur, near Lucknow.

The film, directed by Abhishek Chaubey, is a sequel to the commercially successful Ishqiya starring Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Varsi and Vidya Balan and is currently being shot at Mahmoodabad.

The stars have been camping at a five-star hotel in the state capital for the past few days.

Joining them at the hotel, Birju Maharaj confirmed that he would be directing the dance steps of Madhuri Dixit after a gap of several years.

He had earlier choreographed Madhuri Dixit in Devdaas and Dil to Pagal Hai.
