I’m a strict mother, says Madhuri Dixit
Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit, a doting mother to two sons - Arin and Raayan - is strict when it comes to their healthcare. She says she never lets them go to bed without brushing their teeth no matter how tired they are. ‘There is one thing that I am really strict about my kids and that is (making sure that they are) brushing teeth twice a day. No matter how tired they are or how late they are arriving after attending birthday parties, I make sure that they brush their teeth,’ Madhuri said.
‘I think that is very important. Brushing teeth for two minutes every morning and night is very important,’ said the actress, who is the face of oral care brand Oral B.
Madhuri, who married Sriram Nene, a doctor, in 1999, also feels that ‘a family is very important in Indian culture’ and it is necessary to have a healthy family.
‘A healthy smile shows a happy family because they all represent health when they smile healthy. So I think it is very important for a family to establish a good smile,’ said Madhuri, who was recently shooting for a new Oral B toothpaste ad campaign.
After having started her acting career with the 1984 film Abodh, Madhuri went on to cement her space in Hindi movies with entertainers like Tezaab, Ram Lakhan, Tridev, Parinda, Dil, Sailaab, Khalnayak, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Dil To Pagal Hai. If acting came naturally to her, her dancing skills, grace and charming smile made her a favourite among the best of banners, actors and filmmakers.
