Madhuri Dixit set to pay tribute to Bollywood diva Late Sridevi
MUMBAI - Bollywood's dancing diva Madhuri Dixit Nene will take Bollywood fans on a nostalgic trip as she pays tribute to her contemporary of the 1980s, the late Sridevi, at the third edition of Lux Golden Rose Awards.

This year's event, to be held on Sunday, has extended its support to the UN's HeForShe cause and will see Bollywood's stalwarts lend their support for the initiative, where the men pledge to stand in solidarity with women and face gender inequality together.

Madhuri will dance on superhit tracks of veterans Hema Malini and Rekha, but the highlight of the performance is scheduled to be a heartfelt tribute to Sridevi, a statement said.

Expressing her views on her first-ever award show performance, Janhvi stated,  “Since this is my first performance, I am working extra hard on perfecting my moves and I hope the audiences will shower us with lots love again.”

"When I was approached to do this performance, it left me both overwhelmed and excited. Given that the Awards are supporting the HeforShe movement, I thought it was also time for the women, especially in Bollywood, to celebrate each other and express solidarity with each other.

SRK mentioned he is looking forward to celebrating cinema’s beautiful ladies. “Hosting for this very special audience has always thrilled me and continues to fill my heart with lots of love for these superwomen.”

Varun continued, “It is humbling and delightful to be chosen to host for the ladies. This year’s theme HeForShe is something I want to take a stand for.

I have coveted his title of the ‘King of Romance’ and ‘Ladies Man’ for a long time, and if I am able to live up even to half of his legacy, I will call myself fortunate.”
