Srishti Shrivastava, who has previously appeared in films such as Gully Boy, Gulabo Sitabo, and the short movie Dhavak, is playing a pivotal role in Madhuri Dixit's upcoming Maja Ma; she shares a very special memory of working with the Bollywood diva.

The story of the film revolves around a Gujarati family where a middle-aged couple with a son and a daughter live peacefully. When the couple decides to arrange for their son's marriage to an NRI family, a deep, dark secret gets revealed about the woman of the house. The story starts with how the family deals with the scandal, their son's marriage, which is on the verge of breaking up, and society.

Srishti is playing the on-screen daughter of Madhuri in the film.

Asked if she has any similarities with her on-screen character, Srishti said, "Yes, I am playing a sister who usually fights with her brother, exactly what I do in my real life with my two siblings. I am the elder one. She is also a very strong-minded person who believes that she will do no wrong. I also believe in such things in real life."

Sharing one of her best memories of working with Madhuri, Srishti said, "So, there was an outdoor scene in which I and Madhuri ji were sitting together in an autorickshaw. Since there was no one from our makeup team then, we were told that we had to do it ourselves if any touch-up was required. Initially, I nodded as if I knew everything. The fact is, I do not know anything about makeup that well."

However, the greatest surprise came to Srishti afterwards, as she shared, "Before the camera rolls, Anand (Tiwari, director) said to me that I am sweating and my face is looking oily, so I needed to do a little touch-up. Then I was like, "Damn! now what? Madhuri ji was sitting next to me, and she just quickly held my face and did the make-up touch-up, and said, 'Now it is looking fine!'"

Shrishti further added, "I quickly told Anand if he captured that on camera, that Madhuri Dixit did my makeup! Oh My God! My whole family is such huge fans of Madhuri ji, and everyone asked me if she would come to our home for lunch! We can't really express how overjoyed we are. (Smiles)"

The film Maja Ma is directed by Anand Tiwari and produced by Amritpal Singh Bindra. It also features Barkha Singh, Gajaraj Rao, Sheeba Chaddha, Ritwik Bhowmik, and Rajit Kapoor, and releases on Prime Video on October 6.
