Madhuri Dixit refuses to use cuss words in Dedh Ishqiya
While Abhishek Chaubey’s 2010 film ‘Ishqiya’ was generously peppered with expletives, the sequel ‘Dedh Ishqiya’ steers clear of the use of profanity. Reason being Madhuri Dixit, who plays the lead role in the film, wasn’t comfortable using foul language unlike Vidya Balan, who had no qualms spouting the choicest of cuss words in the original.
Apparently, Madhuri expressed her reservations to Chaubey, who agreed, also because he thought the actress’ character (a Begum) didn’t quite demand the use of offensive language as opposed to that played by Vidya in Ishqiya.
Dedh Ishqiya sees the return of Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi as the crooks they played in the original. The film has been shot against the backdrop of Lucknow city and Chaubey is busy working on its post-production. It now remains to be seen whether the makers’ decision to do away with the gaalis ensures a U/A rating for the film.
