Madhuri Dixit honoured with Padma Shri
Dazzling damsel Madhuri Dixit is one of the Padmashree awardees this year. The heartthrob of many, Madhuri made her foray into films in 1986 with Abodh but hit it big time with her sizzling number in Tezaab, which opened the door for several good offers. Some of her hits include Ram Lakhan, Tridev, Kishen Kanhaiya, Dil, Saajan, Beta, Khalnayak, Hum Aapke Hai Kaun and Raja.
Madhuri won her first Filmfare Award for her performance in Dil and her second for Beta. She was awarded for a third and fourth time for Hum Apke Hain Kaun and Dil To Pagal Hai respectively. In 2002, she starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s mega-budget Devdas with Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai and bagged a Filmfare Award for best supporting actress. She made her comeback in Bollywood with Aaja Nachle last year. While the film failed to make an impact, her performance was appreciated. Take a look at Madhuri Dixit’s journey so far.
