Did you know? Little Madhuri Dixit once started dancing in a train
When you talk about dance in Bollywood, one of the first few names to crop up is none other than actress Madhuri Dixit. You might possible be aware that the talented actress made her debut in films at a tender age of 17 with ‘Abodh’ (1984). As the time passed by, it was during the period of 90s when her dance moves literally won the hearts of millions of her fans. Be it ‘Ek Do Teen’ from ‘Tezaab’, ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ from ‘Beta’, ‘Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai’ from ‘Khalnayak’ to ‘Didi Tera Devar Deewana’ from ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’, and the most recent one ‘Ghagra’ from ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, all of them went on to make her the ultimate Queen of hearts and she came to be known as the ‘Dancing Diva’ of Bollywood. Her infectious smile and her elegance are simply unmatched even today.
Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of this dancing diva where she recalled a very cute incident from her childhood, when she was only three and a half year old. And to our surprise, it is related to her dance moves. The incident was that once little Madhuri started dancing in a train!
On Karan Thapar’s show ‘Face to Face’, while talking about her childhood Madhuri narrated that her friends say as a child she was quite an outgoing person, who was never hesitant to take part in any kind of debates, or elocution tests or contests.

Upon asking further about it, the actress replied, “Yeah! I mean I was everywhere in school. Basically I was doing dramatics or whether it was dancing or whether it was elocution, whether it was debates, whether it was singing, I was enthusiastic you know. No shyness at all, I remember once, there’s an incident my mom used to tell me that we were travelling by train and there were a group of friends and we were all talking and you know chatting. I was very little, I was like three and half year old and somebody asked me ‘You learn dancing?’ So I said ‘Yeah! I do’. Then says ‘Ok, will you dance?’ I said ‘Yeah’ and I started dancing in the train and my mom was like, ‘What are you doing, come here, sit here, you’re not supposed to dance here’. So, for me it was all a part of my life you know.”
Further, she even went on to share that it was because of her good dancing skills that she received scholarship at the age of 9 as a Kathak dancer. And it was due to her dance performance that the first time her name had appeared in the paper. She was 7 or 8 year old at that time and had performed at the Guru Purnima festival. And there was one Maharashtrian journalist who was there and he had written this article saying that little girl stole the show, kind of.
Quite a cute and cherishing childhood incident, we must say!
Well, certainly it wouldn’t be wrong to say that it was Madhuri’s dancing skills that took the actress to another level (after entering films) and even made her different from her contemporaries at that point of time.
