Mumbai, June 21 (IANS) Recalling her struggling days in showbiz, Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit-Nene said that earlier she used to feel that she doesn’t fit in the “perfect” size of heroines. But the actress now believes that she has “accomplished” the goals she had set for herself.
The actress got nostalgic during an episode of the popular dance reality show “So You Think You Can Dance ‘Ab India ki Baari'”, which she is co-judging with choreographers Bosco Martis and Terence Lewis.
Co-hosted by Rithvik Dhanjani and Mouni Roy, “So You Think You Can Dance ‘Ab India ki Baari'” is an Indian adaptation of the popular international format “So You Think You Can Dance”.
When Mouni quizzed Madhuri about one of her statements where she said that she does not consider herself to be pretty, Madhuri said: “Those were my early struggling days and I used to feel I don’t actually fit into the ‘perfect’ size of heroines back then in Bollywood.
“And I used to think that way majorly because of the continuous criticisms I used to face from outsiders. But that didn’t deter my path to success and I worked hard and I think I have accomplished what I had set out for.”
Madhuri, who made her acting debut in 1984 with “Abodh” has remained a prominent part of the entertainment industry for over three decades now.
