Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit has confirmed that she will play the lead in Vishal Bhardwaj's "Dedh Ishqiya".
Directed by Abhishek Choubey, "Dedh Ishqiya" is a sequel to 2010 film "Ishqiya", which starred Vidya Balan, Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi.
"Hey guys, back in action. On set for Star's 'Life OK'. Am doing 'Dedh Ishqiya' and 'Jhalak...' is right around the corner. More to come! Thanks for all ur patience and support!," she posted on her Twitter page. The sequel retains Naseer and Arshad in prominent roles.
