Mesmerising Madhuri turns 40

Madhuri Dixit - Bollywood’s dhak dhak girl, who made the nation sway with her impeccable dance moves in numerous chartbusters, turns 40 today.

And what better way to celebrate her 40th birthday than by making a comeback in Yashraj Films' Aaja Nachle. The film, which will hit the silver screen in November this year, is a musical where Madhuri will be seen doing what she does best - dancing!

Madhuri set the screen on fire with her pulsating dance numbers and backed it up by some inspired acting performances to delight the audience in the late eighties and early nineties. Although picking Madhuri’s 5 best numbers is a contentious job, we have picked the ones that made her the star that she is.

Ek do teen (Tezaab)
The 1988 film proved to be a milestone in Madhuri’s career as she had given many flop films before Tezaab. And when Madhuri grooved to the beats of Ek Do Teen, the nation swayed along. Madhuri Dixit had arrived and the country knew it!

Dhak dhak karne laga (Beta)
Many hearts went Dhak Dhak collectively when Madhuri danced to the song Dhak dhak karne laga from the 1993 hit Beta.

Choli ke peeche kya hai (Khalnayak)
Arguably Madhuri’s best dance song to date, Choli ke peeche kya hai became a rage in 1993, with people of all age dancing to its beats.

Didi tera devar deewana (Hum aapke hain kaun)
This song is another cult song of Madhuri that ruled the music charts for more than a year back in 1994.

Maar daala (Devdas)
Devdas, which was Madhuri’s first film after her marriage, saw Madhuri in an unbeatable mode. And when she swayed to the beats of Maar daala, her fans swayed along!
