New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The eternally beautiful 'Dhak Dhak' girl of Bollywood, Madhuri Dixit turned 53 on Friday. Very recently, the actress was seen in two big-ticket releases, Kalanak and Total Dhamal, but where she has been all these years? 

Madhuri Dixit was at the peak of her career when she decided to quit Bollywood in 1999 and settle down with her husband Dr Sriram Madhav Nene. Though in an interview in 2011, Madhuri confessed that she sometimes feels like coming back. “Mumbai was always home. Of course, that’s (Denver) home too. But sometimes, I feel maybe I should come back…,” she had said.

When Madhuri met Dr Nene, he was unaware of her fan base in India and it was only on their reception day when he realised that what sort of celebrity Madhuri was in India. After seeing such stardom in life this was what Madhuri fell for, said Madhuri while speaking with Simi Garewal in an interview.  

“It was like meeting someone who didn’t know me. There was no preconceived notion in his mind. The first time we met he said let’s go mountain biking. I had not sat on a bicycle for the past 20 years and I was like ‘ok let’s go’,” she had said. 

Dixit also revealed about her husbands reaction and said that he realised only Amitabh Bachchan at their reception. "Oh my God, there are so many people. The only star he recognised at our reception was Mr Amitabh Bachchan. He had seen his film when he was in school and there was Amar Akbar Anthony," she said.

Further in the interview, Madhuri Dixit was asked if she was happily playing the part of a housewife? To which the ‘Dhak Dhak girl’ replied, “I used to make breakfast for my husband when he was in cardiovascular surgery. I used to wake up at 5:30, make breakfast for him, of course, he used to leave for work and I used to go back to sleep for some time. I savoured every minute of it.”

Sharing a secret of her marriage, Madhuri said, "what is wonderful about both of us is we don't want to change each other and that’s what everybody does the moment you get married. I love the way he is and the same is with him".

The 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun' actress has now shifted back to Mumbai where she stays with her husband and son.
