Citation

“Art is a timeless form of self-expression that's deeply rooted in Indian culture. I have embraced projects which challenge me and allow me to develop my abilities. As an expression of spirit and life, dance is the very essence of who I am.”

Présentation

Madhuri Dixit's passion for dance started at the age of three when she was watching her older sister's dance lessons from the corner of the room.  She developed a deep passion for Kathak and Indian classical dancing and won many competitions including a national prize.  It was during one of these dance recitals that she was discovered by a producer and offered a role in Hindi cinema.

The rest is history.

For fans of Hindi cinema and dance, Madhuri Dixit needs no introduction.

She starred in seventy-two films spanning thirty years, and continues to enthrall. She won six Filmfare Awards – India's equivalent of Hollywood Academy Awards – with a total of thirteen nominations. She also won eleven other major awards and twenty-six nominations for her phenomenal work in Bollywood. Her achievements in Indian cinema and culture led to Madhuri Dixit being recognized with the Padma Shri – India’s fourth highest civilian award – which was presented to her by the President of India, Pratibha Patil, in 2008.

With her poetic disposition and grace, she is an epitome of talent and beauty.

Her facial expressions during dance is particularly considered as the standard by which all other performances are measured.
