The Queen of Dhak-Dhak... Happy 50th Birthday!

The Queen of Dhak-Dhak... Happy 50th Birthday!

•• ♥ ◘ -
Madhuri Dixit-Nene- ◘ ♥••

From the very first moment I stood on my two feet, I have aspired to be a mini-me of my Idol, Madhuri. Every beat, expression and move I would always picture how my Madhuri would portray it, though I came nowhere near her level!

Known for her heart-melting smile, setting fire to any stage she dances on and lighting up not only any screens she appears on, but also each viewer’s insides too. From 1984’s Abodh to Aaja Nachle in 2007, Madhuri Dixit-Nene has starred and acted in over sixty-five movies alone, with five Filmfare Awards, four for Best Actress and one for Best Supporting Actress. She holds the record for the highest number of Best Actress nominations at Filmfare, with thirteen. In 2008, she was awarded the Padma Shri, India's fourth-highest civilian award by the Government of India.

The irony of the lyrics, of her iconic Kathak number, 'Maar Dala' from Devas melted the hearts of thousands around the globe, this year sees the Queen of the Silver Screen, the Definition of Dance and Sheer Poetry in Motion celebrate 50 years of her life.

Let’s find the innocence of Bubbli, hidden inside the marvel that is Madhuri Dixit-Nene...

Thank You Madhurji... 
Over the years, Madhuri has been paired with some of Bollywood’s biggest heartthrobs and each and every time, she not only stole the screens, the attention but with every movie she did, she stole hearts, souls and minds...!
Tezaab: 1988
Although Madhuri made her film debut with Abodh, in 1984, she received wider public recognition in 1988 with Tezaab, opposite Anil Kapoor. The film was such a massive hit, that it was 1988's highest grossing movie, and got Madhuri her first nomination for the Filmfare Best Actress Award. Madhuri's pelvic thrusts and turns made the ‘Ek-Do-Teen’ number a trending rage, with the style becoming a permanent feature in most Madhuri movies.

Dil: 1990
A classic romantic movie, with Madhuri and Amir Khan, showing off teen pranks and teen love, taking you back to your own college moments. Their chemistry was on par with perfection, with each and every number taking you back to those moments where you first fell in love. Both Madhuri and Amir oozed flair, panache and finesse in more and more throughout, with each emotion so raw and so real. Certainly, one of my all-time favourites!

Saajan: 1991
Madhuri, Salam Khan and Sanjay all star in this Bollywood love triangle. Although Madhuri was somewhat limited to the submissive role of the object of desire between two strong leads, her charms, grace and fine performance allow her to sublimely wave through the entire script. 

Hum Aapke Hai Kyon: 1994
The biggest hit of 1994 and the 52-week runner, Madhuri and Salam Khan’s Hum Aapke Hai Kyon was one of the biggest hits of 1994, with a trend setting towards non-violent love stories. Again, with some sizzling on-screen chemistry between the pair, Madhuri and Salam suited each other perfectly, with some great numbers that still are heard and seen today.

Sexy Shah Rukh... Magnificent Madhuri: 1993-2002
How could I pick and just cover one movie that starred this breathe-taking Bollywood duet?! Anjaam saw both actors play a vast amount of emotions and go from a positive to an extreme negative character, whilst delivering that charm and grace that is Madhuri. This talented duo had all lovers, everywhere come alive, when we saw the theme that Love Conquers All in Koyla, Dil to Pagal Hai, Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam and last but least, Devdas. The awesome-twosome has always set the Bollywood screen blazing alight with their talent, chemistry and extravaganza!

Here's to the future, Mrs. Dixit-Nene 
Here’s wishing the only classy, graceful and heart-stopping, Mrs Madhuri Dixit-Nene, a very Happy 50th Birthday! Yet am I to witness some who ages to beautiful, gracefully and classily. Praying for her years ahead to be filled and showered with great health, wealth and happiness, forever more. May she continue to grace the stages and screens, creating magic, masti and magnetism performances, bringing life and a breath of fresh air to Indian Cinema, once again.

Bapuji: A Tribute To My First Hero

Every girl grows up with a Hero in life, usually the Father/Father figure; I was doubly blessed with two. Of course my Father is, has and always will be mine, but my first Hero is my Bapuji, (My Mother's Father). If you me well or read my last blog, (, you shall know that I am a truly spoilt Princess and this all thanks to my Superhero Nana! From the day I was born, doctors, nurses and health care professions swooned around; a fairer than fair doll, head of thick, luscious black curls and a smile that had everyone putty in my hands. This continued when Mother and Baby were discharged home, where from day one, I had everyone at my beck and call! All schedules revolved around my burps and bumps, yet no one was actually allowed to touch me. Between my Nana, Father and Mama, (Maternal Uncle), I was constantly guarded, with my Mother only being allowed to nurse me with a supervisor. Even my poor Nani, (Maternal Grandmother), had to have supervised time! So it shall come as no surprise that yours truly was named Princess for many reasons! As time went on, I was constantly given undivided attention, showered with love and affection and wanting for nothing. Yes, I was spoilt endlessly and I say this with pride!

I know today my family and I are all feeling a little bit sad, that 17 years ago we lost our Bapuji, our Hero and our Rock.. Together we have held hands and cried an ocean of tears, as we felt so empty and held many fears. The Man that has always been here, present and supportive, in ever moment, is no more. You may not be here in body, but your soul, teachings and values live on in ever one of us. I can imagine that you are still worrying away, like you always did, about the slightest little thing, when it come to any one of us, because... That was you! However, it is only because of you that we are such a close crowd and a tight unit, though when we bicker I hope you are busy with other distractions!

I sleep a little easier, knowing you are an Angel, who watches over me, morning, noon and night and I can only, but pray that may your soul be resting in peace. I am sure you would want us to know that you are in a good place, watching us all with a smile, making your fishy-face, as we strive to make you proud, as proud as can be, that you has raised such a beautiful, caring and special family..

Thinking back now, I really have to say just how lucky and privileged I was, to have known and been with Bapuji to his last day, for in my life you have played such a special part, the memories I will treasure and keep close to my heart, always and forever. I will alway cherish our foodie passion, those midnight yogurts, toast and sambharo, (cabbage and carrot stir fry), and even to this day, I can't eat guwar nu shak, (cluster beans curry), without shredding a tear in your thoughts.

I know when God called you, you had to go, but I still want you to know Bapuji, that I miss you so much and love you more so, each day and although He has gone we, His family will always be together, with His spirit living on, in each one of us. When I look to the sky, I look for the brightest star, as that will be Bapuji looking down on us from afar. Baa was the wind beneath your wings and I made a solemn promise to you, and every time I think of it, my body tings, but I will fulfill the vachan, (promise), I gave you because through Baa, I still have you.

I thank God, my Bhole Naath and my Mataji, (Lord Shiva and The Mother Goddess), above, for blessing us with our Bapuji with all his warmth, kindness and love and Bapuji, as you watch down on us, say a prayer for us every day, be sure to protect us and guide us on our way.

Goodbye for now, my Handsome Hero, until we meet again, one day..
I love you always Bapuji..
4th May 2000: The day you let my hand go, but found a place in my heart.. 

Rest In Peace Stud!
