If you mention Madhuri Dixit to someone who has never met her the question is always the same. Is she really so lovely? And the answer is ‘yes’! Ever since the first time I met her on the sets of Tezaab when she shooting for the Ek do teen song, and now as a wife and mother, Madhuri was and will remain a stunner! Tell her that, and she laughs ‘I don’t think I am beautiful, I am simply photogenic’! The other was her taking pride in her Maharashtrian roots. Despite achieving a super star status Madhuri never hesitated to talk in her language, or hide her love for the simple fare of aloo poha or varun bhat! In fact her modesty, and her touch with reality always added to her charisma. Traits she unhesitatingly attributed to her family! With one of her parents always being present in her make-up room, her regular trips abroad to meet her siblings, and they dropping in for lunch when she was shooting in Mumbai had kept her grounded, she had laughed once. This was apparent even now when she made sure her children were around on the sets when she was recently shooting for Aaja Nachle, her comeback film. Indeed it is unbelievable that someone so beautiful could have this ‘every person’ quality.
