Madhuri Dixit Nene dominated Bollywood in 1980s and 1990s. Her first major role was in Tezaab in 1988. She then went on to star in hits like Ram Lakhan, Parinda, Dil, Beta, Saajan, Dil To Pagal Hai and of course one of the biggest blockbusters in Bollywood, Hum Aapke Hain Koun! We cannot imagine Madhuri without dance. The Dhak Dhak girl with her flawless dancing and apt expressions stole everyone's heart.
Hum Aapke Hain Koun, which had 13 songs, was another landmark film in Madhuri's career. The lady wooed the audience with her expressions and grace in each one of the number. In fact, Didi Tera Dewar Deewana refuses to fade in public memory even today.
In 2002, she starred in Devdas, which was featured at the Cannes Film Festival.
