Madhuri Dixit, now known by her married name Madhuri Dixit Nene, has been the Dhak Dhak girl of Bollywood for three and a half decades. Her career started with Rajkumar Barjatiya’s Abodh in 1984 and over the years, she has successfully and enviably established herself as a leading lady. On her birthday, we bring to you five reasons why she will always remain the legend of Hindi cinema that she is!
Madhuri entered the industry at a time when the world was obsessed with handsome heroes. However, she effortlessly managed to turn the tables for heroines. Even when her films flopped, her performance was lauded and reminisced forever. How else do you explain the fate of an easily forgotten film Raja (1995) which mind you was a blockbuster? The movie added no weight to Sanjay Kapoor’s already light-weight career but proved one fact: Madhuri Dixit commands an infallible box-office power.
