Madhuri Dixit-Nene was born on May 15, 1967. She was always a good dancer and her training in classical dance (Kathak) ensured her an entry into Hindi cinema with Rajshri Productions film Abodh in 1984. Thereafter, she continued doing supporting and small roles.

By education, she’s a microbiologist. But she chose to become a full-fledged Bollywood actress-dancer. Her big break came with N. Chandra’s Tezaab in 1988, not so much with her acting but with her mindblowing performance in the song Ek Do Teen. There has been no looking back for Madhuri since then and she is today one of the most iconic divas of B-town. She is a mother of two kids, married to a doctor, and manages her career of an actress, reality show judge and producer with ease.

We share an archival video of Madhuri Dixit-Nene’s biography by journalsit Bharti Pradhan on the occasion of Madame M’s birthday.
