It’s Madhuri Dixit‘s birthday today as she turns 50 today. The ‘Dhak Dhak’ girl still rules our hearts and we love her for what she is, no matter what her age is. To make this birthday even more memorable, let’s take a look at the five most iconic roles of Madhuri Dixit, that made her the queen of our hearts-
1. Tezaab (1988)
How can we ever forget the iconic dance number ‘Ek Do Teen‘ from Tezaab? This movie not only established Madhuri as the ultimate dancing queen, but also as a powerful actress. She was so good in the character of Mohini that people did not even pay much attention to Anil Kapoor, the hero of the movie.
2. Dil (1990)
The rich arrogant girl from Dil earned Madhuri the first ever Filmfare Best Actress Award of her career. The movie also turned out to be the biggest box-office hit of the year 1990. Madhuri’s dance in the promotional song Dum Duma Dum was so loved that the song had to be included in the movie later and then re-released.
3. Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!
Hum Aapke Hain Koun still holds the record of being one of the biggest hits in the history of Indian cinema and the movie is also a classic love story cum family drama. The way in which Madhuri pulled off the carefree character of Nisha was applause-worthy and her romance with Salman became immortal. The cherry on the cake were her amazing moves in ‘Didi Tera Dewar Deewana’.
4. Dil Toh Pagal Hai
Next came Dil To Pagal Hai, the movie in which she competed with another major star of her age- Karishma Kapoor. While both the actresses stole the spotlight from Shah Rukh Khan, it was Madhuri who took her dancing skills to a whole new lever and showed everyone how to dance gracefully. The movie fetched her the fourth Filmfare Award for Best Actress of her career.
Devdas is always remembered as one of the biggest and most wonderful period films made by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. While Aishwarya Rai looked more beautiful than ever in the movie, Madhuri had her own aura. She pulled off the colorful Chandramukhi with such ease and grace that we were left wondering who is better than whom?
