I always attempt to do relevant work: Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri has been Bollywood`s top actress for 30 years.

In a career of more than three decades, Madhuri Dixit Nene has managed to rule many hearts. The actress says she is trying to do work that is relevant to the times.

Whether it was her work in "Tezaab", "Ram Lakhan", "Saajan", "Beta", "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!" and "Devdas" or films like "Dedh Ishqiya", "Gulaab Gang" and "Total Dhamaal" -- Madhuri has followed her own path.

Talking about her changing image with time, Madhuri told IANS here: "I think I always got opportunities to do some cool stuff even in the 1990s when I was young. When my son watches my dance on 'Que sera sera' with Prabhudheva, he says 'You are my cool mom'. I understand where it comes from... It is the relatability, it is the relevance of those works... I am always trying to do work that holds relevance "

Madhuri features in the multi-starrer "Kalank", alongside Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. The film, directed by Abhishek Verman, is releasing on Wednesday.

"Kalank" brings together some of the stars of different generations.

Sharing her experience, the 51-year-old actress said: "I think we were cool in our time, they are happening in the present time, but hey, I am catching up. We had more face-to-face interaction with our co-stars and these fellows are more on social media. The good thing is, I am finding that world (virtual world) quite fascinating... Updating what we are shooting, posting quirky pictures on social media... I enjoy these too!"

Does she believe that senior actresses are getting much better characters to play currently than earlier?

"I strongly believe that people like us have to break the stereotype because with popularity and experience, if we are carving a path that shows how women of our age can flourish with substantial characters in films that go beyond the cliched, our next generation will continue it. We have to open up doors for the next generation... Again, it is (I am speaking) not like an activist, but like an artiste," Madhuri said.
