Bollywood beauty Madhuri Dixit Nene, who has donned the producer's hat for the first time with the movie "15 August", says she found the process daunting but exciting. Asked about her experience of being a producer, Madhuri told IANS: "I have been in the industry for over 30 years. So, it was not very daunting but a little daunting because I was wearing the producer's hat."
"I was behind the camera. I had to make sure that everything went on time and everything was within budget. So, you had to take care of a lot of things... It was not daunting but more exciting. I enjoyed the process," added the actress, who lent her voice for the character Nisha in Netflix's "Mowgli: Legend Of The Jungle".
"15 August" is a Marathi film starring Rahul Pethe and Mrunmayee Deshpande. The film is produced by Madhuri's production banner RNM, which is co-owned by her husband Sriram Nene. The film is set in a Mumbai chawl, and follows the course of a single day as its residents prepare for the flag-hoisting ceremony. "15 August" is expected to release later this year.
Talking about her next Bollywood film, Madhuri Dixit will be seen in the multi-starrer project Total Dhamaal which also stars Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Jackie Shroff, Boman Irani, Johnny Lever and Sanjay Mishra. The trailer of the film will hit the internet today and the film will release on February 22.
