"I loved Salman in his earlier films like "Saajan", "Andaz Apna Apna", "Hum Apke Hai Koun!" I see a completely different Salman now. Earlier, he was very mischievous but today he is more relaxed and wants to do good work. I find he is a lot more committed," Madhuri said. "When you see him doing a character of Chulbul Pandey, there is a different maturity that he brings into it. I love his dancing too. Earlier, he would just dance but now he has got his own style and a swagger, which is really wonderful," she said, adding that she wants to do a masala entertainer film with Salman, provided she is offered one.
Surprisingly, Madhuri has no friends in Bollywood. "Everybody is so busy with his or her work. I am sure other actors must be having friends. Back in the 90s when I was completely into films, I hardly went for any parties. I would feel uncomfortable and completely out of place," she said. Besides her acting abilities, Madhuri, who is known as a great dancer, likes the dancing skills of Deepika Padukone. "I enjoyed watching Deepika Padukone's dance in 'Nagada Sang Dhol Baje' from 'Ram-Leela'. She is very graceful. I like Katrina Kaif too. She works really hard. I also like Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma," she said.
Madhuri is quite happy the way her online dance academy is shaping up. "It is coming along really very well. We have more than 88,000 students and we are planning to expand it. We want to introduce different dance forms. There are some minor problems as everything is on the internet, but otherwise we have got a very good response," she added. (PTI)
