Think of Madhuri Dixit and a carousel of images from her various hit films and songs flip through your mind. ‘Ek do teen’ from Tezaab, ‘Dhak dhak karne laga’ from Beta, ‘Choli ke peeche kya hai’ from Khalnayak, ‘Didi tera devar deewana’ from Hum Aapke Hain Koun? and ‘Dola re’ from Devdas, among others.

The 54-year-old actress and dancer, who was introduced in the Hindi film Abodh (1984) when she was just 17, is all set for her OTT debut.

In the Netflix series The Fame Game, Dixit plays superstar Anamika Anand, whose sudden disappearance sends the country and her family into a frenzy. The bespoke series is a showcase for Dixit’s talents including dance, music and acting. Created by Sri Rao, the drama also stars Manav Kaul, Sanjay Kapoor, Muskkaan Jaferi, Lakshvir Saran and Rajshri Deshpande.

In this interview, Dixit speaks about the show, the other side of celebrity and how much of Madhuri Dixit is Anamika Anand and vice versa.
