Madhuri Dixit – Dancing Queen of Bollywood


Since I wrote the Top Ten Movies of Mohanlal, my wife wanted me to write a blog about her favorite actress Madhuri Dixit. Since my knowledge about Hindi movies (even though songs from Khal Nayak and Raja were my favorites during my engineering days) is minimum I asked her to compile a list of Madhuri’s movies where she was gorgeous as a dancer.

Madhuri to me is the greatest dancer Bollywood has ever seen. Even now in her early forties she has not lost her magical touch in dancing. Her jhatkas and matkas are so elegant that it is a treat for our eyes to watch her dance. Here is a journey through some astonishing performance of Madhuri in the last two decades.


This is the movie that gave Madhuri Dixit a big break and the song in this movie “Ek do teen” became a huge hit. As a kid I use to love this song and always dance to the tune of this song whenever I heard that in radio or tape recorder.

Hum Aapke Hain Kaun

One of the greatest trend setters in Bollywood, Madhuri won the Filmfare best actress award for this movie. Her performance was outstanding in this movie.


This Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri starrer was a block buster and one of the reason was the exceptional performance by Madhuri who enacted the role of Chandramuki. This movie proved to the world how exceptional Kathak dancer Madhuri is. She won the best supporting actress Filmfare award for this movie.


Another of many hit movies from Anil Kapoor-Madhuri pair, this movie also won her Filmfare Best Actress Award in 1992.


This movie become infamous for the controversial song "Choli ke peeche" which is deemed as the one of the best sensuous songs of Indian cinema. Another example of great partnership between Madhuri and Saroj Khan


Another movie where maduri’s acting and dance is flawless.


A flop movie but a great performance by Madhuri Dixit.

Dil to Pagal Hain

Yash Raj hit movie of nineties. See this performance where Madhuri and Karishma Kapoor is competing each other. Madhuri always makes difficult dance steps looks so simple.

Aaja Nachle

This movie was released in 2007 and madhuri could be more than 40 years old when she acted in this movie but this song proves again that even at this age she has not lost her elegance.

Waiting eagerly for her next movie…..

Excellent collection!!! One of the few reasons I started watching hindi movies (though I don't know much hindi). She was very attractive women and class at her times.. Untill recently she lived in Denver and I remember a friend of mine saying that once, when he attended a party where she was also there and made a request not to take any pictures...A disadvantage of being too popular I guess...

For one time I could see that have good taste too!!!

Good post :) There's one thing we'll all have to agree about Madhuri,that her very presence on screen exuberates tons of charisma.
