Madhuri Dixit, the famous Bollywood actress, is really talented. She has not only talented in her acting skills but she is also a talented dancer. The actress is a trained classical dancer. She has learnt her superb dancing skills with the help of her eight years of training. It is due to her great dancing skills that Pandit Birju Maharaj had appreciated this actress personally.
Madhuri Dixit is really lucky to be among the few actresses of Bollywood who have been trained and lauded by Pandit Birju Maharaj. The actress got to work with Birju Maharaj during the shooting of Devdas. You must be remembering the song “Hum pe ye kisne hara rang..” which was exclusively picturised on Madhuri. The initial lines of this song were purely classical and needed some superb classical dance steps. For those special steps, Pandit Birju Maharaj had trained Madhuri.
Pandit Birju Maharj is not the only one to appreciate Madhuri Dixit. The gorgeous actress has earlier been praised by many choreographers apart from her fans. Madhuri is a favourite of Saroj Khan, the famous Bollywood choreographer. The two have worked together in many movie.

Actress Madhuri Dixit is residing in Denver and taking it easy.Despite receiving offers she is no in mood to sign on the dotted line.
She has not still made up her mind for signing Krishna Shah’s which is based on the late Prime Minister of India Mrs. Indira Gandhi. Also there is news that she might play the lead role in a Broadway show produced by renowned Bollywood choreographer Saroj Khan. The show is based on historical dancer Amrapali.But it seems like her only consideration is care of her sons.
According to Madhuri’s Mumbai manager Rakesh (Rikku) Nag, the actress is receiving several offers but she will take the right decisions at the right time. Also he added that she receives at least two major offers every month but since Madhuri does not give him a go ahead sign, therefore he turns them down.
According to Saroj, Amrapali is very famous abroad. Therefore a Broadway show based on her is ought to be a success. She said, “If everything goes as per plan then Madhuri Dixit will play the main character.”
Saroj Khan has always shared a special bonding with the actress. Madhuri’s hit dance numbers as choreographed by Saroj Khan are ‘Ek Do Teen’ from the film Tezaab, ‘Chane Ke Khet’ from ‘Anjaam‘ and ‘Dola Re’ from ‘Devdas‘.
Despite an adroit actress, Madhuri Dixit is remembered for her dance too. “For me it is not just about shaking my hands and feet or moving to a rhythm. It just comes from my soul. It’s a very spiritual thing for me whether it is a Western number or an Indian one”, says actress Madhuri Dixit.
Her famous dance numbers for bollywood films had been Ek Do Teen (from Tezaab), Bada Dukh Deenha (from Ram Lakhan), Dhak Dhak (from Beta), Chane Ke Khet Mein (from Anjaam), Choli Ke Peechhe (from Khalnayak), Akhiyan Milaun (from Raja), Piya Ghar Aya (from Yaarana), Key Sera (from Pukar), Maar Daala (from Devdas) etc.
For Madhuri’s dance choreographer extraordinaire Saroj Khan says, “Madhuri is a kind of dancer who looks fantastic no matter what she does and how she moves! She puts her heart and soul in her dancing. Out of the many actors who I have choreographed, she is the only one with whom I can experiment. I have given her so many weird dance steps but she still did it with ease!”
Ah, the breakout film! This 1988 N. Chandra movie brought Madhuri to the forefront, kicking things off for Bollywood’s biggest female superstar. Opposite Anil Kapoor, the duo never looked back and the crowd couldn’t get enough of the bright-eyed Ek do teen girl.
Thanks to ace choreographer Saroj Khan, Madhuri’s always had memorable songs. This 1992 Indra Kumar film featured the provocative smash, Dhak dhak karne laga. A deceptively strong drama, Beta revolved around son Anil Kapoor’s superstrong bond with mother Aruna Irani, a tie that choked Madhuri as his lover. Until she spurred him on to fight back.
Dil To Pagal Hai
In 1997 came a dream romantic project. No one directed a love story like Yash Chopra. No man was finer at it than Shah Rukh. In stepped Madhuri in this Shiamak Dawar-choreographed musical. Chopra directed with restraint and finesse, and a highly polished script makes this a very watchable film. The chemistry between the lead actors is palpable, resulting in a product that made a whole new generation fall in love with Mads.
Indra Kumar’s 1990 film is one of those that would be much more palatable if Madhuri wasn’t wearing those ridiculous clothes.Still, the story of young love serves as testament to the dazzling actress, as she constantly steals the show from co-star Aamir Khan, winning a well-deserved first Best Actress award in the process.
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun
The biggest film in Bollywood box office history, this one’s a justifiably popular pick.Sooraj Barjatya’s 1994 slice-of-wedding-cake
film starred Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan as innocent and carefree kids who can’t help falling in love. Madhuri’s Nisha was stunning, enthused, plucky and irresistible. The situation goes from heavenly to godforsaken, and while the end remains a stretch, the film broke new ground and changed Bollywood convention forever.
Choreographed by Saroj Khan, the number had brought much appreciation and awards form all. And now, Genelia and Prachi Desai will both be seen putting their best dance feet forward for a similar track in Life Partner that also stars Fardeen Khan, Tusshar Kapoor and Govinda.
Titled Gunje Angana Mein Shehnayi, incidentally, this track too has been choreographed by the veteran Saroj. The song has an uncanny resemblance to the song from Devdas. And though very much different
from each other, the chemistry between Genelia and Prachi will undoubtedly revive memories of Ash and Madhuri in Devdas grooving on Dola Re song..
It’s almost like an ode to them. Now whether Genelia and Prachi will recreate the same magic on screen as the sensuous ladies from Devdas, only time may tell.
Among other things, Madhuri Dixit have received abundant popularity and critical acclaim for her dancing talent. All these songs and dances stand out as her all time favorite and biggest hits.
