Former Indian superstar Madhuri Dixit to make a comeback in Bollywood

Former leading lady Madhuri Dixit is planning a Bollywood comeback, the actress said in a newspaper interview, but she gave no details of her plans.

Dixit told the Times of India newspaper in an interview published Tuesday that she would play a role in a new film to be produced by her business manager, Rikku Rakeshnath.

One of Bollywood's most sought-after stars in the 1990s, Dixit gradually stopped taking on roles after marrying a U.S.-based Indian surgeon in 1999. Her last hit movie, released in 2002, was "Devdas," in which she played a courtesan in a saga of doomed love.

"If I'm going to be away from my family for my film, it better be worthwhile," said Dixit, 39, who has two young sons, reports AP.

Rakeshnath said he would start work on the film soon. "It was on Madhuri's insistence that I decided to start my own production house," he said. "Madhuri will be acting in one of the films I plan to start shortly."
