Madhuri is a well trained Kathak dancer and began her dancing lessons at a very tender age. She is most famous for her thumkas and jhatkas, with an added grace and flexibility. She had the most beautiful expressions to match her dance performances or her acting. Her smile spoke volumes and added a certain charm to her face.

She looked glamorous in any attire she chose to wear, be it western or Indian. Though she had a natural curvaceous body, nothing looked over the top with her. Such was the charisma of the actor.
