When MF Hussain celebrated Madhuri Dixit’s motherhood
Kapil Sharma Show, Indian television’s most popular comedy show, will be hosting Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit along with co-star Anil Kapoor in the show this weekend. The star cast of Total Dhamaal is scheduled to appear on The Kapil Sharma Show to evoke peels of laughter among the audience.
Total Dhamaal aka Dhamaal 3 is an adventure comedy Hindi film directed and co-produced by Indra Kumar. This is the third film in the Dhamaal franchise. The film stars Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey, Madhuri Dixit, Esha Gupta, and Anil Kapoor. The film will open at the theatres on 22 February 2019.
Incidentally, in late December 2017, Ajay Devgn FFilms collaborated with Fox Star Studios to produce the film while Pen India Limited and Mangal Murti Films came on board as co-producers.
Coming back to The Kapil Sharma Show, a conversation with Madhuri Dixit remains incomplete if a mention of the great painter, MF Hussain, is not made. During her conversation with Kapil, Madhuri speaks about the large-heartedness of MF Hussain and what a great person he was. She said Hussain was miles away from material comforts. She shared an interesting anecdote from the time when she was in Denver.
“I was in Denver and Aryan was just born. So, one day, Hussain Saab called me to tell me how keen he was to paint me in the role of a mother as he had already seen me acting in the role of a heroine. And now he wanted to see me in the role of a mother and how I take care of the house, the child, etc.
“He came to Denver carrying a small roll-away bag, seeing which I asked him if I need to get his baggage collected. He mentioned that he isn’t carrying any baggage and the roll-away bag is all he has got. He didn’t waste any time and started planning on going out to get a canvas and start off with the painting to which I asked him to relax and rest during his stay. To which Hussain Sahab said ‘aap Mujhe punishment de Rahi hai, relax Karne ko bol kar, jab mai paint Karta hoon to mai relaxed rehta hoon (you are punishing me by asking me to relax, I feel relaxed when I paint).’ I gave in and told him that we need to get a canvas as well as paints, but he pointed towards his bag and said that paints were already there. I was a little surprised to see that the only bag he was carrying was full of paints, so I asked him about his clothes to which he said ‘yeh shirt pehna hai aur pyjama’ He was like a Saint who had absolutely no interest in materialistic things, he was content with his passion for art.”
Madhuri went on to say that one should learn from MF Hussain and Pandit Birju Maharaj Ji on how to preserve their art forms and not get carried away by stardom.
