- Famous Quote:It’s so ironic. When you finally achieve recognition, you hide behind dark glasses.
Born in a Chitpavan Brahmin family to Shankar and Snehlata Dixit, Madhuri Dixit was a microbiology student. A native of Mumbai, Madhuri was passionate about dance and started dancing at the age of three. Her love for dance soon translated into her love for acting and soon after, she was on the film sets shooting her debut film Abodh (1984). A commercial failure, the film earned Madhuri positive reviews from critics. For almost four years after her debut, her films continued to flop at the box-office before Tezaab starring Anil Kapoor happened and she finally hit the Jackpot. Saajan, Beta, Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, Dil To Pagal Hai and Devdas are some of Madhuri’s best known films. She is the recipient of six Filmfare Awards and the highly coveted Padma Shri. Her husband Sriram Madhav Nene is a doctor by profession.
