The horrible fashion sense of the 1980s could not hide the sparkle that was Madhuri Dixit. An actress par excellence, an amazing dancer and the one-with-the million dollar smile, Madhuri has been lucky to be featured in some really beautiful song compositions that have gained more beauty because of her exceptional dancing skills. Ek do teen, a song sung by Alka Yagnik, was from where everything started. Madhuri Dixit’s joyous moves in this song in the movie ‘Tezaab’ were choreographed by master choreographer Saroj Khan and created a sensation in the country.

Dhak Dhak , a song sung by Anuradha Paudhwal and Udit Narayanan from the hit movie ‘Beta’ is another iconic song where Saroj Khan again showcased Madhuri’s sexy side with some bosom thrusts and subtle lighting. Her orange sari and blouse and chemistry with Anil Kapoor are still remembered.
Madhuri danced to the koli number Hum Ko Aaj Tak Hai with such gusto that people forgot the movie and just looked at her. This song sung by Anupama Deshpande for the forgettable movie ‘ Sailaab’ made full play of her enticing expressions and body language.
Hum Ko Aaj Kal Hai
Didi Tera Dewar Deewana from the movie ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun…!’ is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and S.P. Balasubramaniam, is one of those dance numbers that exhibitsher playful side. Her much copied blouse and purple sari were a huge hit with the ladies and the song became a fixture at weddings.

The not-so-successful and grim ‘Anjaam’ boasted of the immensely playful ‘Chane Ke Khet Mein’. Her expressions in this song sung by Poornima were copied by girls of all ages and so were her moves.

Choli ke Peeche created a huge controversy because of its lyrics, but the popularity of this song sung by Ila Arun and Alka Yagnik was propelled mainly because of Madhuri’s dancing and its folk based beats. ‘Khalnayak’ is still remembered for this Madhuri number.
Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai
Lavish sets and a beautiful courtesan, Madhuri dressed in a heavy period costume whirling to Maar daala in ‘Devdas’ remains an indelible memory in Madhuri’s many fans’ minds. Her classical dance based steps in this Kavita Krishnamurthy sung song clearly tells us what a brilliant dancer she really is.
Dekha Hai Pehli Baar is another hit song Of Madhuri’s sung by Alka Yagnik and S.P. Balasubramaniam. This romantic song from the super hit movie ‘Saajan’ shows a young Madhuri in the throes of young love.
Dekha Hai Pehli Baar
Akhiyan Milaun is a great dance number picturised on Madhuri and Sanjay Kapoor in the movie ‘Raja’. Her fun expressions and funky dance moves made this song a huge hit. The song was well sung by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayanan.
Dil To Dil Hai is a song of seduction where Madhuri is seen sexily swaying to the delight of Anil Kapoor. ‘Zindagi Ek Jua’ was otherwise an eminently forgettable movie.
