Madhuri Dixit will play the female lead in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Dedh Ishqiya.
Since Madhuri returned to India, there were reports that she will replace Vidya Balan in the sequel to the 2010 hit Ishqiya.
But the Bollywood diva kept denying it.
Now that she has signed the film, the 44-year-old confirmed it on Twitter.
She would also be judging the fifth season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Ja for the second time.
Madhuri’s last release was Aditya Chopra’s Aaja Nachle which did not fare well at the box office.
