For years now we have admired her craft of acting and the catchy dance numbers. Madhuri Dixit is Bollywood’s original queen of hearts who ruled the silver screen for decades before putting family first.
Her aura, her stardom, her fame, it all grew manifold in just a span of few years and even while all of that was happening, we knew we were watching history in the making. She has won a million fans over with just a smile and now as the legend turns 51, we have listed down 6 hit numbers of the actress that you should listen to today.
- Didi Tera Dewar Deewana from Hum Apke Hain Kon (1994)
This movie was a classic and Madhuri’s character continues to remain one of Rajshri Productions’ all-time-favourite. This song has won millions of hearts and still remains one of the classic ‘shaadi’ numbers at any desi wedding.
- Ek Do Teen from Tezaab (1988)
Madhuri rose to fame via this film opposite Anil Kapoor. While she made her Bollywood debut in 1984 with ‘Abodh’, it was only her performance in this song that established her as Mohini. Dixit also got her first Filmfare nomination for her performance.
- Maar Dala from Devdas (2002)
Sanjay Leela’s Bhansali’s take on the 1917 Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay novel saw Dixit step into Vyjayanthimala’s shoes as Chandramukhi. Her performance was not only brilliant but the magnificent dance numbers had us swooning. Her solo number in the movie for ‘Maar Dala’ was one of the most memorable one ever.
- Bholi Si Surat from Dil Toh Pagal Hai (1997)
This 1997 movie, where Dixit starred alongside Shah Rukh Khan was one of the all-time favourites for the 90s kids. This romantic number always got us thinking about that ‘someone special’ back in those days and nothing can match the cheesy-yet-catchy numbers from the days.
- Jootay Dey Do, Paisay Ley Lo from Hum Apke Hain Kon (1994)
Another song from Rajshri Productions’ 1994 movie is a song that can get us singing and dancing, no matter where we are. Not only that, Dixit and her on-point facial expressions are never getting old.
- Ghagra from Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani (2013)
This number from the recent Ranbir Kapoor starrer had us all swooning over the beauty. Not only does she look stunning in the ‘Ghagra’ but her dance moves are so energetic, that it makes us wonder. What’s the beauty/energy secret?
