Twitter outrage over Madhuri playing Sonam’s mom

The news that Madhuri Dixit would be playing mom to Sonam Kapoor in Anil Kapoor‘s production of Freaky Friday has not gone down too well with her fans and supporters.

Laughs Madhuri, “My followers on Twitter are asking, why mom why mom, no mom! Let’s see. I haven’t said yes to Anil yet. I’m yet to see Freaky Friday. I’m watching the film this week. After that I’ll take a call.”

Madhuri is very clear that she won’t accept a role unless she’s absolutely sure of it. “It isn’t as if I’ve any problems playing a mother on screen. I am a mother in real life. And I love being one.”

In fact her two sons are in India right now for their Christmas holidays. “And we’re having a ball. I’ve never been away from them for so long. God, it was good to see them.”

Madhuri is in Mumbai until March 2011. “That’s when my stint on ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ will end. I’m having such a good time doing the show. I’m no stranger to the camera. But I had never judged a reality show before. So I had my apprehensions. But the show is a breeze. The contestants are all so good. And I get along really well with the other judges Malaika Arora and Remo. Yeah, all in all I’m very comfortable doing the show.”

As for signing a film Madhuri is not getting into anything she’d regret later. Not after her last film Aaja Nachle.

Says a source very close to Madhuri, “Aaja Nachle had everything going for it. But it didn’t have a sense of purpose. The fight was for something really trivial. Now Freaky Friday is no great shakes. If they are remaking a bad film, how much can they improve on it? At this stage of her career Madhuri doesn’t want to get into anything she’d regret later.”
