The eternal beauty of Hindi cinema, Madhuri Dixit Nene is not just a mere name, rather she is a perfect combination of wit and hard work. In a world full of actors, she became the heroine who overshadowed her every co-star. She became the dhak-dhak girl of the entire nation and also proved that her legacy is not just limited to time.

However, Madhuri knew how to balance her personal and professional life. When she decided to get married to Dr Shriram Nene at the peak of her career, she had set her priorities straight, and hence, distanced herself from the filmy duniya. And it was only after her sons grew up, she returned to the Tinseltown with the man of her life.
It was on October 17, 1999, when Madhuri tied the knot with the prince of her life. Recently, we got hold of an unseen picture from their pre-wedding ceremony that made us remember the aura of the dhak-dhak girl. In the picture, we can see Madhuri and Dr Nene smiling for the lens with the Namrata Shirodkar and Shilpa Shirodkar. Take a look at the picture below:
The snap has been shared by Madhuri’s friend and actress, Shilpa Shirodkar on the occasion of her 52nd birthday. She captioned it as, “Hey MD Wishing you a very happy birthday some pictures are just to die for @madhuridixitnene you were and will always be an inspiration of most of us. Love and Light to you forever MD.” (Also Read: Madhuri Dixit Reveals Her Reaction On Meeting Her Hubby Dr Sriram Nene For The First Time)
Coming back to Madhuri and Shriram’s magical love story, it was a match made by the former’s brother. Yes, Dr Nene was a close pal of Madhuri’s brother, Ajit Dixit. He requested her to meet this charming man for once, and it was the start of their happily-ever-after. After three months of courtship, the two decided to get married. Once in an interview, when someone asked why she got married at the peak of her career, she had stated, “Because I was in love.”
In another interview, Madhuri had talked about her life after she got married. She had stated, “Marriage changes all of us to some degree, no matter what people say. Some of the changes are common to all marriages like your schedules and time with family, etc. It’s great to have a life partner you can depend on. At the same time, you now have to look out for the family unit. In our case, the issue of her being a celebrity makes some things difficult or impossible. This is more the case in India than in the US. However, it hasn’t really changed my identity or personality.”
The 46-year-old actress had revealed an interesting detail about her marriage, and had said, “When I met Mr Nene I did not think who he was whether a celebrity or doctor.. I liked him as a person. We got along well and that was important. There was no set rule that this is what I am going to do.” (Don't Miss: Madhuri Left Bollywood At The Peak Of Her Career To Marry A Doctor Who Was Her Brother's Choice)
