Mumbai — Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit revisited her long-distance relationship days with husband Sriram Madhav Nene on the sets of “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7” while watching the performance of contestant Mouni Roy.
Roy and her choreographer Punit’s mirror-image act, about two lovers forced to be apart due to distance, reminded Dixit about the early days of her marriage.
Dixit, 47, who moved to the U.S. after her marriage to Nene, said the act took her to those days when she had to come to India to shoot “Devdas” just after her wedding.
"I was smiling throughout the act and kept thinking of those days when my husband and I stayed apart. Right after my wedding, I came to India for four-five months to complete ‘Devdas.’ We kept saying 'I miss you' to one another, just like they showed in their act," Dixit said in a statement.
The emotional act, which will go on air this weekend, will also earn Roy and Punit the coveted dancing shoes from judges Dixit, Remo D'Souza and Karan Johar.
