Madhuri Dixit became an overnight sensation with her role in Tezaab. In this 1988 hit, she played Mohini Dhanyekar, a young woman forced to dance in nightclubs to support her father. The song “Ek Do Teen” from the film became a massive hit and is still one of her most celebrated tracks. Madhuri’s captivating performance and dance moves in this movie skyrocketed her to fame.

Beta (1992)

In Beta, Madhuri’s portrayal of Saraswati was nothing short of phenomenal. The film, directed by Indra Kumar, features her as the strong and determined wife of Raju (Anil Kapoor). Saraswati’s character drives the story forward, challenging the toxic influences around her husband. The song “Dhak Dhak Karne Laga” became a sensation, further cementing Madhuri’s star power. Her compelling performance could have easily been renamed the film Beti.

Dil (1990)

The movie was a huge hit, and her purple embellished saree in the song “Didi Tera Devar Deewana” became a fashion sensation.

Devdas (2002) – Stealing the Spotlight

Devdas, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, featured Madhuri as the courtesan Chandramukhi. Despite the main stars being Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri’s performance stood out.
