Madhuri Dixit Was a top-line model in India before entering the Hindi film industry. Was launched by heavy-weight producer-director Subhash Ghai. Regretted showing flesh in Dayavan (1988) and has tried to maintain a clean image since then. Got recognised by her Ek-do-teen song/dance number in Tezaab (1988), which launched her as a top actress. Had an affair with actor Sanjay Dutt.
A superb performance followed in Dil (1990) – which brought Madhuri her first Filmfare award, a rapport was struck with Indra Kumar which resulted in two more blockbusters Beta (1991) and Raja (1995). 1990 onwards, a hit film per year followed including Saajan, Khalnayak, Prem Pratigaya, cumulating in Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994), hindi cinema’s biggest blockbuster to date. Madhuri mania ensured the success of Raja (1995), a film with many flaws, thus Madhuri was renamed as female Amitabh Bachchan.
