Madhuri Dixit actorBollywood queen Madhuri Dixit looks as charismatic and stunning as she did during her superstardom days in the first-look snapshot of her upcoming film Dedh Ishqiya. The snapshot introduces Madhuri’s character Begum Para as royalty personified in a gorgeous red and gold dress.

With grey shades in her character, Begum Para is an enigmatic woman from a nawabi gharana who is irresistible yet dangerous.Dedh Ishqiya marks Madhuri’s second shot at a comeback after marriage following her 2007 debacle, Aaja Nachle. The film is slated to release on January 31. A black comedy, Dedh Ishqiya is produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and directed by Abhishek Chaubey and is billed as the sequel of the duo’s 2010 crossover hit, Ishqiya.

Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi return as the male protagonists of the film, while Huma Qureshi is also part of the cast.In the snapshot, Madhuri Dixit is seen smiling at Naseeruddin with mesmerising eyes. She is clearly the seductress with a ‘nawaabi adaa’ and the duo have already shot some steamy intimate scenes. Bhardwaj was reportedly keen on casting Madhuri even before the actress decided to make a Bollywood comeback.

After the more mainstream Aaja Nachle, which relied solely on her dancing skills, tanked, Madhuri seems to have gone for a calculated re-launch this time by choosing film-makers known for solid scripts and characters.Of course, one cannot imagine a Madhuri-starrer without a sizzling dance. So what if she plays a begum – given her dancing skills the makers of Dedh Ishqiya have accommodated a special mujra choreographed by Pandit Birju Maharaj.

The song is titled Apke karar mein. Dedh Ishqiya, like Ishqiya, revolves around the theme of love, passion and deceit. Unlike the prequel, though, the setting of the film is not rustic. Rather, this film is set against the backdrop of Lucknow and will try to capture the nawaabi milieu.Currently, the film unit is shooting for another song in Mumbai. It is an elaborate sequence that requires the depth of the darkness, and hence Madhuri has been working nights. The makers plan to release a first glimpse of the film on November 8, right after Diwali. -Dailymail
