- The trailer for the Fame game was released on Thursday
- It will start streaming on Netflix on February 25th
- “I loved the script, loved her journey,” said Madhuri Dixit
That’s what actor Madhuri Dixit Nene said on Thursday The Glory Game delves deep into the “follies” of fame, adding that the movie star character she plays in the upcoming Netflix series has a remarkably different life from hers. The series, supported by Karan Johar, stars Madhuri as Anamika Anand, a Bollywood icon whose “seemingly perfect” life is spotlighted after she one day disappears. During the launch of the show’s virtual trailer, the 54-year-old actress said she was intrigued by the show’s premise and immediately drawn to its world.
“I loved the script, loved her journey. It’s about fame, what follies and complications can happen when there’s fame in your life. It’s a story about this woman whose life seems perfect until one day she disappeared and everyone is wondering what happened to her, where is she?’ Then the ‘Where is she?’ switches to ‘Who is she?’ Do people know who she is? does she know each other Because they’ve all seen her on screen, larger than life, living (a) perfect life with a husband (and) children. She is perfectly positioned in her job. So what happened to her? I found it fascinating. That really intrigued me,” said Madhuri.
Filmmaker Sri Rao is billed as showrunner and writer of The Glory Game while Bejoy Nambiar and Karishma Kohli are attached as directors. The series also stars Sanjay Kapoor, Manav Kaul, Lakshvir Saran, Suhasini Muley and Muskkaan Jaferi.
Madhuri said her life and experiences in showbiz are in stark contrast to what her fictional character, Anamika, faces on the show. The actress, who has worked in the industry for over 35 years, said she feels fortunate to have worked not only with capable filmmakers but also with “good people”.
“Everyone has a different experience. I have to thank God that all my experiences so far have been wonderful, the people I have met, my parents have been a force who have always stood by me. But that’s not the case with Anamika. She has a different life, the way she was raised, her identification with her mother,” she added.
According to Madhuri, the only similarity between her and her character Anamika is that they are both movie stars. “There are many differences. The way she sees fame and the way I see it is very different. That’s why it is The Glory Game for fame is a treacherous path. It depends on your attitude. That’s what you’ll find out on the show, what happens when you fall on the wrong side of fame.
“It’s a mystery, but it’s also about relationships, family, how fame can twist and make the best of things look bad. In that sense it was a challenging script for me because the role is such that there are so many shades to her,” she added.
Produced by Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Somen Mishra and Dharmatic Entertainment, The Glory Game Premiered on Netflix on February 25.
