It's been almost a year to Sridevi's demise and fans are still missing her a lot. After Sridevi's demise, director of Kalank, Abhishek Varman, roped in Madhuri Dixit to replace Sridevi in the film. 

As we all know, Varman's period drama has wrapped up and Madhuri Dixit has shot her role in the film but recently, while promoting her latest outing Total Dhamaal, this 51-year-old actress got talking about how difficult it was to digest that Sridevi is not anymore.

"What took time was to digest the whole thing that had happened. It was so shocking, I was like 'you want me to do this role?' because even they (filmmakers) were stuck. They had to go on," 

Madhuri informed PTI, adding, "As a person, it was hard to deal. As an actor, you know the role, the script. It's a different matter altogether. But to accept the truth was very difficult." 


After Sridevi's demise, daughter and Dhadak actress Janhvi Kapoor took to Instagram and posted a picture of Madhuri Dixit with her mother and thanked Madhuri for taking up Sridevi's role as she wrote, "Abhishek Varman's next film was very close to mom's heart ...Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuriji for now being a part of this beautiful film."

Sridevi died on February 24, 2018, by accidentally drowning in the bathtub of a hotel room while she was in Dubai to attend a family wedding. 

 On the work front, Madhuri Dixit was last seen in the 2014-film Gulaab Gang directed by Soumik Sen and next, this diva is gearing up for her latest film Total Dhamaal co-starring Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, and Esha Gupta.

Stay tuned for more updates.
