By now, all of us know that after Sridevi’s untimely demise, Madhuri Dixit was roped in Abhishek Varman’s period drama Kalank to replace Sridevi and just like all of Sridevi fans, we too are sure that Madhuri Dixit is going to do full justice to the role. But come to think of it, it must have very emotional for the Dhak Dhak girl while shooting for the film and in an interview to DNA, the Dil Toh Pagal Hai actress confessed to being very emotional while shooting for Kalank. “When I was on the sets, I looked at it as just another role. But, yes, I was extremely emotional when Karan (Johar) asked me to take up her role. I hope I make her proud.”

Just a few days back, it was late actress Sridevi’s first death anniversary and as much as her family and daughters- Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi, miss her, Madhuri Dixit too expressed a sense of grief as she said, "We had known each other for many years and shared a warm equation. It was difficult for everyone in the industry to wrap their heads around her sudden loss. It is still hard to accept the truth. I don’t think anyone of us has still come to terms with her absence. We will always feel the void.” After Madhuri Dixit was roped in to fill in the shoes of Sridevi in Kalank, Janhvi Kapoor took to Instagram and posted a picture of Madhuri Dixit with her mother and thanked Madhuri for taking up Sridevi’s role as she wrote, “Abhishek Varman’s next film was very close to mom’s heart ...Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuriji for now being a part of this beautiful film.”

Abhishek Varman’s Kalank features Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sonakshi Sinha in lead roles and according to reports, Madhuri Dixit will be seen in the role of a dancer in the film and talking about her role, Madhuri said, “When people watch the movie, they will realize how different it is from what I have done in my other films like Devdas where I played Chandramukhi. The role that I have here is poles apart from that.”

Sridevi died on February 24, 2018, by accidentally drowning in the bathtub of a hotel room while she was in Dubai to attend a family wedding. Later, the actress was brought to Mumbai three days and cremated in Mumbai with state honours. On the work front, Madhuri Dixit was last seen in Indra Kumar’s Total Dhamaal co-starring Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, and Esha Gupta.
