Here are some excerpts taken from a recent Madhuri interview taken from Page 7 Magazine.
Don't you feel that there has been a great void in Bollywood after the exit of actresses like Karishma, Kajol and Sridevi and of course yourself?
Well I have never thought about it in that way. There comes a time when I decided I had done all that I could have in films and I should get married and raise a family now. But yes, maybe people felt bad. But now with powerhouse actresses like Rani, Priyanka, Vidya and others I don't feel that there is a void. I have admired Rani for her work, she is my favourite actress. And after watching 'Ishqiya' I must say I was floored with Vidya Balans performance. Priyanka is young and has a long way to go
From amongst all the co-stars, who was/is your favourite?
You want me to say it, and then everyone will start saying "Madhuri has said his name, she doesn't like the others". I will tell you one thing, I got along with everybody, and there was never a problem with any of my co-stars. I would take a name of the person with whom I have worked in a lot of films and who has always been a very dear friend of mine - Shahrukh Khan. We share a great liking for each other which is completley mutual and there is a lot of respect in our relationship.
Have you signed any new film?
Right now I haven't signed anything. But it is so sweet to know that my fans would still like to see me in a film
And, what about Ishqiya 2 with Sanjya Dutt?
These are just speculations. Nothing of that sort has been finalised.
