Madhuri Dixit is 48, but age doesn’t bother her


The Madhubala of the 1990s Madhuri Dixit who turned 48 on Friday May 15, said age doesn’t matter to her as it’s just a number. “Age is just a number for me. It doesn't scare me. It doesn't stop me from doing anything. I feel talent is timeless and I believe in it,” an agency quoted her as saying.

 The beautiful actress with a mollion-dollar smile has enthralled one and all with her dancing as well as her acting in her long and successful Bollywood career. And the actress continues to charm every heart with her grace and talent.

Madhuri is known more for her dancing rather than acting which is no less superior. She has always been a passionate dancer, and therefore, turned her passion into reality by opening her own online dance academy ‘Dance With Madhuri’ in 2013. Just a couple of days ago, she had launched the second version of her dancing tutorial website. The dancing diva also showed off her amazing dance moves on stage during the launch.

The actress made her Bollywood debut at a young age of sixteen in ‘Abodh’ in 1984. Madhuri shot to fame with the 1988 release ‘Tezaab’. Her dance number in the film ‘Ek do teen’ became an enormous hit. In the multi-starrer Subhas Ghai film ‘Ram Lakhan,’ she had only a small role to play, yet she stole the show with her expressive dance in ‘Badaa dukh’ song. She came to be known as the ‘Dhak Dhak girl’ after she gave a brilliant performance in the film ‘Beta’.

A few of her memorable dance sequences in bollywood movies include ‘Mera piya ghar aaya’, from film ‘Yaarana’, ‘Que sera sera’ which was choreographed by Prabhu Deva, ‘Maar daala’ ‘Aajaa nachle’, ‘Ghagra’ where she retains her name Mohini of ‘Ek do teen’ fame.

Madhuri was a leading actress of the 1990s with a number of hits like ‘Dil’, ‘Saajan’, ‘Beta’, ‘Khalnayak’, ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’, ‘Raja’  and ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’.

Choreographer Saroj Khan, who had choreographer most of Madhuri’s early hits called her a “choreographer’s delight.” Kathak guru Pandit Birju Maharaj who choreographed her for the song ‘Maar daala’ in the film ‘Devdas’, described her as “the best Bollywood dancer due to her versatility."
