Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit, who is based in the United States after marriage, has said she was open to film offers.
"I have been offered scripts and will sign if something very interesting comes up. Logistics can be worked out whether the film can be shot in the US or India," she told PTI over phone from New York.
The Dhak Dhak girl was the guest star of Amitabh Bachchan-led 'Unforgettable' tour in the United States and performed in six cities, including the last one in New York.
About interaction with Big B, Madhuri said it was good fun to be part of the US leg of the tour that started last month and consists of Bollywood style song and dance shows.
"Though I have not worked with him in any films, I have always admired Bachchan and this tour was a good opportunity to interact with him. There is so much to learn from Amitabh Bachchan," she said.
The actress, who dominated the silver screen in most parts of 1990s after making her debut in 1984, said the tour was a thrilling and unforgettable experience.
She said her husband, surgeon Sriram Nene, accompanied her to some of the shows. "Amitabh Bachchan is the only Indian film star my husband recognises and he remembers watching only Amar Akbar Anthony."
"He told me that Bachchan was excellent on stage. My kids are too small to travel with me. They came only to Los Angeles. Otherwise they stay with my mother-in-law," the actress said. Madhuri said her two sons would start going to school from this month.
She said a team from Wizcraft, the organisers of the show, had come to her home in Denver to explain about the concept and helped in rehearsal.
Madhuri said she last went on a world tour in 1995, and quality of production of such shows was getting better with time just like Bollywood films.
"There is a huge improvement in the manner in which the stage is lit up with high-tech equipment. Besides, a lot of Indians living here are very interested in such shows."
Speaking about filmmakers of Indian origin in the US, which has a vast Indian population, Madhuri said she had an opportunity once but the meeting could not materialise since her kid was unwell. "But, I am surely interested in what they are doing and would like to interact with them."
On whether she will be doing any Yashraj or Meghna Gulzar's film in near future, Madhuri said there were many offers during her last visit to India to collect the Padma Shri award.
"Meghna's film was one of the many offers that came. But, nothing has been decided as yet. I have lot of respect for Yash Chopra and visit him when I am in Mumbai. People might have construed my visit to him wrongly, but, I would surely do a film for that banner if a good script came up."
About her comeback vehicle Aaja Nachle, a Yashraj movie that failed to recreate her old magic and proved a dud at the box office last year, Madhuri said she still thinks the film's subject was good enough.
"What I know is that we made the film from the heart. But one cannot always win," she added.
