On February 25, 2022, Madhuri Dixit's latest web series, The Fame Game, got released on the OTT platform, Netflix. She is playing the role of a Bollywood star, 'Anamika', who shows both sides of a coin of a star's life, like on one side playing with stardom on the other dealing with family. In an interview with the Harper Bazaar, she opened up about her highly protected childhood due to her parents and how she started making decisions only after her marriage. She revealed:

"I grew up in a very protected environment… My parents used to always accompany me, even when I was working. But once I got married, I began making decisions by myself. I learnt a lot about life because living in the US. When I was in India, there would always be around 20 people fussing over me at all times, but there I was very independent."

Further in the conversation, Madhuri added that those experiences she had gathered while doing her chores and raising her kids had helped her portray the role. She also mentioned that she was helped by her mother and mother-in-law, whenever she needed, but she has become mature and learnt a lot. She explained:

"I had to do things on my own, bring up my kids—of course, my mom and mom-in-law would come and help me out whenever I needed. But as you grow older, you mature and learn a lot, and grow as a person with your experiences. Today, I use those experiences when I'm essaying a role."

In a recent interview with the ETimes, Madhuri was asked specific details about her acting career and also how she manages it with her personal life. She was asked about taking a break in her acting career. Answering this, Madhuri wittily had mentioned that 'getting married and having kids' was also her dream, so she had chosen that. She had said:

"It felt good. Because I chose to go away. I chose to get married. I chose to have kids. I did what I wanted to do. We all have our own dreams and having a family and all that was a big part of me. I love kids. I wanted to have kids. So that was a big part of my dream and I was living my dream. I just met the right person, and I thought this is a person I want to get married to and I got married. I just have lived life on my terms."

In the same interview, she was also asked how stardom had affected her personal life. Answering this, she had explained that she takes acting as a profession, and when she returns home after work, she is a normal person. She had also mentioned her mother, Snehlata Dixit's role in her life and how this had helped her never get affected by stardom. She had revealed:

"I look at it as a profession. When I go in front of the camera, I'm a professional actress. And I know what I'm doing. I've read a script, and I'm reading it and I'm playing that character. I become that character for the camera, but once I go back home, I am a normal person, because that's the way I've been brought up. I mean, even when I was working in films, my mom used to scold me if my room was messed up and things like that. So that's how I was brought up. And that's how I am. When I go home, everything is back in the studio. I see my kids and I see my husband and it's just a different life. I never really lost myself."

We are obsessed with Madhuri Dixit's humble attitude even after getting so much stardom.
