Karan Johar Mumbai, June 25 (IANS) If there’s one thing Madhuri Dixit wants as a reward for her dance talent, it is late Hollywood actor-dancer Gene Kelly’s tap dancing shoes.

“I want Gene Kelly’s tap dancing shoes. I know all dancers here in India, but I love his style of dancing. I have never tap danced in my life. So, maybe if I wear his shoes, I’d be able to tap dance,” said Madhuri.

Gene Kelly was a well-known, Academy Award winning multi-faceted personality, who featured in films like “Singin’ in the Rain” and “An American in Paris”.

Madhuri, who is his fan, is currently a judge on dance reality show “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5″, aired on Colors.
