Versatile Madhuri Dixit who plays the central character Pallavi Patel explains why she took up this role. “ It’s a pivotal resilient woman-centric story character who has the strength of her conviction .

In fact, for the first time I played Garba ‘( dance song Boom Padi ) in my acting career . The movie is so much like a Hindi blockbuster movie with a spectrum of emotions, drama, domestic family conflicts, romance, festivities wedding, laughter , gravitas lovely lively songs relatable, relevant characters and lots of take-aways,” assures Madhuri

Must share that during my school and college I had lots of Gujarati friends and I do understand and speak quite a few Gujarati words and phrases   Frankly, I really love Gujarati culture, their food and snacks . Once on a 16 hour overseas flight to the US,  where the  in-flight food was not good, I carried with me Gujarati ‘thepplas’ ( spicy dry snack similar to soft parathas or rotis) and relished them all thru the flight,” laughs madame Dixit

What also impressed me, was that despite being such an iconic star, she was so friendly-playful-courteous with absolutely no star-tantrums during the shoot, during lunch-break or after her pack-up.”
