Madhuri Dixit-The 90s 'dhak dhak' girl of Bollywood turns 51 today

In simple words, the apt mix of luck and talent is what made her the star.

Madhuri, a trained Kathak dancer, had enrolled for a course in microbiology in Mumbai's Parle College when she signed up for her 1st movie, Abodh. "Launching it on her birthday, #TuPari out now!".

Madhuri Dixit-Nene: The classical Indian beauty. From her eye roll stint in Akhiyaan Milaaun from Raja to her graceful moves in Maar Daala from Devdas, the actress has given us performances that we can never forget, that we can dance to for a really long time.

Be it Nisha from Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Maya from Dil Toh Paagal Hai or Mohini from Tezaab, there are certain roles that the diva has pulled off. Madhuri has had hits with all superstars Anil, Aamir, SRK, Salman and Sanjay Dutt.

Speaking about Amitabh Bachchan's bucket list, Madhuri quipped, "What can be in his bucket list?".

She is the recipient of many coveted awards including Filmfare and Padma Shri, India's fourth-highest civilian award given by the Government of India. The Government of Maharashtra honoured her with the Raj Kapoor Special Contribution Award in 2012. However, Raakhee had 8 nominations each for Best actor (female) and Best supporting actor. She wishes that with the life she has she can make a difference to someone's life and if she can achieve this she would be very lucky.

"During the course of the episode, talented dancer Jiya Thakur along with her mentor Vaishnavi Patil impressed the attractive Madhuri Dixit and the judges with her impeccable dance steps to the yesteryears" blockbuster song "Mera Piyaa Ghar Aaya". The mother of two sons returned to showbiz around five years ago, and continues to be one of the most charming beauties in the Hindi film industry.

Currently, Madhuri has successfully reinvented herself and wears many hats. Her biggest wish is to meet the poet and see if he is like how she imagined him to be. She has been named UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
