One of the favorite parts of my job, is to be able to tell stories across genres, languages and to a varied audience. Today I’m happy to share with you another step I’ve taken on that creative journey, in my role as a producer. This particular story is one of a few Hollywood projects that I am currently developing. The incredible Madhuri Dixit's real life has been the inspiration behind Sri Rao’s amazing story, and I can't wait to work with the both of them to see how this will pan out. Again, it’s unchartered territory for me, producing a show for American television but I’m blessed to have a great set of partners in Mark Gordon Company's Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper, along with ABC Studios to develop and produce this very fun idea. After having an incredible experience with them on Quantico, this seemed like a perfect extension of our partnership. I’ve only just begun and there is little I can share at this point about any of the projects but I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work. Stay tuned. @abcnetwork #NickPepper #MarkGordon @madhuridixitnene @newyorksri @purplepebblepictures
The actress accepted that production is a completely new foray for her but she is grateful to her team which includes the producers of ‘Quantico’ as well. Also on the board of producers will be the “Dhak-dhak girl” herself, along with her husband Dr. Nene.
The plot of the show will be penned by Sri Rao, a Bollywood writer, who has written for ‘General Hospital: Night Shift’, ‘What Goes On’, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’, ‘Badmash Company’ and ‘New York’. The writer also recently tweeted a picture with Madhuri Dixit and Priyanka Chopra, announcing his new assignment.

Currently untitled, the show will be about the life of Madhuri Dixit as she got married to Sriram Nene, a Los Angeles based surgeon, in 1990 and settled in Denver. The couple has two sons Arin, 14 and Rayaan, 12. A few years ago, the family left America and returned to Mumbai. It was then that Madhuri made a comeback in Bollywood with her film ‘Aaja Nachle’ in 2007.
Believed to be one of the most beautiful and favorite actresses of Bollywood, Madhuri was last seen in movies ‘Gulaab Gang’ and ‘Dedh Isqiya’, both of which released in 2014. Since then, she has had her presence on the silver screen as a judge on reality shows.
Both the beauties of Bollywood have millions of fans the world over and we’re sure they would be desperately waiting for the show to get started!
