Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit now has a star named after her shinning in sky. This was made possible by a group of the Dhak Dhak girl's fans.

"Wanted to thank my fans for the honour. They had a star in the Orion constellation named after me," Madhuri tweeted.

A group of 13 members of The Empress Fanpage met the actor on Thursday on the sets of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, which she is judging, to present her the star certificate.

The certificate by Star Foundation reads: "A celestial body in the sky above has been named in honour of Madhuri Dixit-Nene and is officially located in the constellation Orion."

For Madhuri, it has been a glorious journey since she debuted with Abodh in 1984 and received wider public recognition with hits like Tezaab in 1988 and 1989 release Ram Lakhan. After that she gave some of the big hits such as Saajan, Dil, Beta, Hum Aapke Hain Koun and Dil To Pagal Hai.

The 45-year-old has won five Filmfare Awards and holds the record for gettting maximum number of best actress nominations at the Filmfare Award. In 2008, she was awarded the Padma Shri, India's fourth-highest civilian award, by the government of India.

In 1999, the actor married Shriram Madhav Nene, a cardiovascular surgeon and relocated to Denver, US. After staying there for almost a decade, she has shifted her base back to Mumbai, along with her husband and two sons.

Post-marriage, Madhuri worked in Aaja Nachle, which didn't do so well. But her stint as the judge on dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4 gave her a chance to reconnect with her fans in a big way.

Now she has has signed Vishal Bhardwaj's Dedh Ishqiya and Anubhav Sinha's Gulab Gang.
