Madhuri Dixit (B.1967)

Hindi actress born in Ratnagiri. The youngest of a Bombay engineer’s four children. Mother was trained in classical music. As a biology student at the Parle College, Madhuri agreed to act in the Hindi film Abodh, which flopped. Also appeared in some episodes of a Doordarshan TV series, Bombay Meri Hai. Her breakthrough came with N. Chandra’s Tezaab, in which she introduced a novel kind of sensuality, mainly via the song ‘Ek do teen’, choreographed by Saroj Khan. Her sensual dances, often exuding sexuality more overtly than had been the convention in Hindi films, guaranteed mass appeal. Performed the suggestive ‘Dhak dhak’ song in Beta and her reputation culminated with the controversial ‘Choli ke peeche’ in S. Ghai?’s Khalnayak, which included the piquant question: ‘What’s beneath the blouse?’ Considered by many as the leading female star of the 90s after she catapulted to mega-stardom following [[Hum Aapke Hain Koun...!]], followed by Raja.

Personal Life On 17 October 1999, Madhuri Dixit married Shriram Madhav Nene, a UCLA-trained cardiovascular surgeon who practiced in Denver.[40][41][42] Nene is also from a Marathi Brahmin family.[43] They have two sons, Arin (born in March 2003) and Raayan (born in March 2005). After marriage, Dixit had relocated to Denver, US for almost a decade. In October 2011, Dixit again shifted her base back to Mumbai, India, along with her family.[44] Madhuri Dixit has been the muse for the famous Indian painter M.F. Husain. He was so fascinated by Madhuri Dixit in Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! that he watched the film 67 times, and in 2007 he booked an entire theatre to see her comeback movie Aaja Nachle.[45] He made a series of paintings of her, and in 2000 made a film named Gaja Gamini starring her, which was intended as a tribute to Dixit herself.
