Happy B’day Madhuri Dixit: 10 Iconic numbers of Dhak Dhak Girl



Madhuri dixit

New Delhi, May 15: She came, she saw and she conquered. This is the best way that Madhuri Dixit’s Bollywood journey can be summed up.

Born on 15 May 1967, Madhuri made her Bollywood debut with Abodh in 1984, little did she know that she would become one of Bollywood’s most sought-after actresses.

Her beauty was immortalised in late painter MF Hussain’s paintings who even made a film Gaja Gamini, that featured the dhak-dhak girl. If her beauty besotted many, her dance moves won the hearts of millions of her fans.

She gave Bollywood some of its biggest hits in the 90s. And when it comes to dancing, no one can do it like Madhuri Dixit! From Choli Ke Piche Kya Hai To Dhak Dhak to Dola Re Dola, Bollywood’s dancing queen had many hits to her name. In fact, as a dancer, she continues to give competition to and inspire the next generation of actresses.

And as the dhak-dhak girl turns 51 today, we take a look at some of her hit dance numbers in a career spanning over three decades.

1. ‘Ek Do Teen’ (Tezaab)

Madhuri’s first big break, this song came after the actress delivered nine consecutive flops, but, with this song, she established herself as Bollywood’s best dancer and Ek Do Teen became an overnight sensation. Crooned by Alka Yagnik, the song’s success signalled the arrival of the star who would go on to rule a million hearts in the years to come.

2. ‘Didi Tera Devar’ (Hum Aapke Hain Koun)

With Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit in lead roles, Hum Aapke Hain Koun won immense praises for the music which is still popular. Among all the numbers, it was Lata Mangeshkar and SP Balasubramaniam-sung Didi Tera Devar which turned out to be a blockbuster. Donning a blue lehenga, Madhuri mesmerised her fans with her dance moves in the song that is still played at weddings.

3. ‘Dhak Dhak’ (Beta)

Now, this is the number that landed Madhuri her nickname, the ‘dhak-dhak girl’.

4. ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aya’ (Yaarana)

If you thought Ek Do Teen was the only hit number pulled off by Madhuri, think again. This song from David Dhawan directorial Yaarana was a chartbuster in those days. Kavita Krishnamurthy won a Filmfare Award for Best Playback Singing for the song.

5. ‘Choli ke Peeche Kya Hai’ (Khalnayak)

Controversial when it released for its innuendo-filled lyrics and suggestive dance moves, it is now one of Madhuri’s most memorable performances.

6. ‘Humko Aajkal Hai Intezar’ (Sailab)

Here’s one of the many instances when the dancing diva redefined sexy for her fans. Who can forget those sensual thumkas and lavani style dance number by Madhuri.?

7. ‘Channe Ke Khet Mein’ (Anjaam)

In an old interview, Madhuri herself picked this as one of the most noteworthy dance numbers. Looking stunning in green Lehanga with gajra in hairs, the diva rocked the number with her sexy dance moves.

8. ‘Ankhiyan Milaon Kabhi Ankhiyan Churaon’ (Raja)

Starring Sanjay Kapoor, the film failed at the box office. But Madhuri won hearts with her cute gestures and quirky dance steps in the song.

9. ‘Maar dala’ (Devdas)

‘Maar dala’ – that was exactly the effect her performance had on the audience. As always, she nailed the expression game, so fans could actually feel her character’s emotions. Donning a lehenga reportedly weighing almost 30 kilogrammes, as always Madhuri won hearts with her expression game and dance performance in the song wherein she attempts to woo Devdas, who is engrossed in drinking.

10. ‘Ghagra’ (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani)

Here’s Ranbir Kapoor grooving to Rekha Bhardwaj’s popular track with his childhood crush, Madhuri. What luck, RK!

We wish the actress a very happy birthday and hope she has a wonderful year ahead where she continues to entertain her fans.
