After the successful launch of her website a few months ago, Madhuri Dixit Nene now will introduce on it a special workout, which is a mix of dance and exercise. The veteran actor has incorporated her signature steps in this regimen to make the exercise sessions fun. A series of videos of the
actor demonstrating the routine will be available on the site soon.
Madhuri says, “In the gym, one gets bored of the regular exercises. But this routine combines dance and exercise to get the best of both. I have merged popular dance steps from my songs to give people a special cardio workout. It is easy to follow as most people remember the songs and moves. The bottom line is to make working out fun.”
The dance diva feels that this is an attempt to reach out to people who don't necessarily want to learn dance. “Not everyone is passionate about dance. There are others who love working out. This workout will help everyone,” she says. Talking about her fitness routine, she says, “Dance has been the mainstay of my fitness regimen. Exercise and eating healthy is what works for me. I have made it into a lifestyle.”
Ask her if she is looking to monetise the project soon and she says, “We would like to keep it free for as long as possible. Right now, we aren’t thinking of that but at some point when we may have to monetise it, let’s see how we do that.”
The actor admits that she has received offers from people willing to put in their money. But she clarifies, “We haven’t zeroed in on anyone yet.”
Madhuri is currently awaiting the release of her upcoming film, Gulaab Gang, which also stars Juhi Chawla.
