Madhuri Dixit Nene says if her 1992 film Hum Aapke Hai Koun released two decades later on the digital giant Netflix, it would have been watched by even more people. The bollywood beauty was recently in Mumbai for Netflix’s See What’s Next: Asia.
The actress is making her debut on Netflix with her Marathi production titled 15th August, which is set in a chawl and is a satire about the struggles of middle class India. Asked what if Hum Aapke Hain Koun…! would have premiered 20 years later on Netflix?
“There are two magical things in the world. One is theatre and the other is internet. Netflix is a great bond between these two.
If we had the infrastructure that we do today, 20 years ago then it would have been great because even though Hum Aapke Hai Koun…! was very well received despite not having Netflix and everything it would have magnified,” Madhuri said.
She said releasing it on a digital platform would have taken the family entertainer, which was very well received at the Indian box office, to another level.
