Netizens even have been getting deja vu of two iconic actresses, Madhubala and Madhuri Dixit, who have earlier aced in the same 'Gajagamini Walk' sequence. While Madhubala did this walk for a song in the movie, Mughal-E-Azam, Madhuri showed the same walk in a 2000 film, Gaja Gamini. In Sanskrit, 'Gajagamini' stands for one with the gait of an elephant. Thus, the Gajagamini walk refers to a kind of walk that is majestic and dignified. It also means strength, grace, and feminity.
