Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri Dixit, the Madhubala of the nineties, the Maryln Monroe of Bollywood, has stolen the hearts of the young and the old alike. Madhuri Dixit (born as Madhuri Shankar Dixit to a Marathi family on May 15, 1967) is a five-time Filmfare Awards winning Indian Bollywood actress. She is a native of Mumbai, India. She has quite a range of fans, right from little kids in the railway station dancing to the beat of Ek do teen, college gir ls aping her costumes and dance movements from her Hum Aap Ke Hai Kaun, to M.F. Hussain, the magnificent painter who is completely fida over her charms. Throughout the late 1980s and the 1990s, she dominated Hindi cinema as a leading actress, appearing in many hit films. She is considered to be an icon of the Bollywood film industry. In 2001, Dixit was awarded the National Citizens Award to recognize various activities that effect everyday life.


Dixit attended Parle College and wanted to be a micro-biologist. She is trained as a Kathak dancer, in the Indian classical tradition. She made her acting debut in Abodh (1984). She got a lucky break when Su bhash Ghai spotted her dancing talent during the shooting of Awaara Baap. He told her that if she stopped doing itsy-bitsy roles, he would relaunch her in his films. After a few minor and supporting roles her first major role was in Tezaab (1988) which launched her career. She then went on to star in the hit films Dayavan (1988), Ram Lakhan (1989), Dil (1990), Saajan (1991), Beta (1992), Khalnayak (1993), and the Bollywood blockbuster Hum Aapke Hain Kaun! (1994).
