The dhak dhak girl of our tinsel town, Madhuri Dixit had made many go crazy with her debut film, Abodh. Though the movie had not done well at the box office, it surely had changed Madhuri’s life for the better. Since then, there is no looking back for this gorgeous lady. Be it her smile, her grace, her poise or her dancing skills, people fall in love with her every time she makes a public appearance.
With six Filmfare awards and the Padma Shri award in her kitty, Madhuri Dixit has created her own niche in the Indian film fraternity, and there’s no doubt about that. She is a self-made woman whose family had no ties with the glam world. For the unversed, on October 17, 1999, Madhuri had entered another beautiful phase of her life when she had tied the knot with a cardiovascular surgeon, Dr Shriram Madhav Nene from Los Angeles, California. Together they have two sons, Arin Nene and Ryan Nene.
Madhuri Dixit has a fan base of millions, and her personal life is often the talk of the town owing to her social media handles, where she gives glimpses of her happy married life. However, one chapter from Madhuri's life is less talked about. Well, this super-stunning dancing queen of Bollywood was once rejected by famous Bollywood singer, Suresh Wadkar apparently. Yes, you read that right! It’s hard to believe that the lady for whom many are mad was once rejected by Suresh.
Suresh Wadkar had a very absurd reason for saying 'no' to Madhuri Dixit for the wedding. Well, Madhuri belongs to a conservative Maharashtrian family, and her parents didn’t want her to work in movies. Madhuri’s father had even started hunting for a perfect groom for her when she was very young since they wanted her to get married and settle down. After a lot of groom hunting, the actress’ father had thought Suresh Wadkar to be a perfect match for his daughter. It was that time when he had just started off his career in singing.
But the twist in the tale is that the budding singer, who was 12 years older than Madhuri, had rejected the proposal. The reason behind the rejection given by Suresh was that he had found Madhuri too thin.
It would definitely have been very disappointing for Madhuri Dixit's father, but somehow it was lucky for the lady. If this wouldn't have happened, she won't have entered the showbiz world. And then, a few years later, she had stepped into movies in 1984 with Abodh, becoming one of the most versatile actresses of all time.
It is rightly said that whatever happens, happens for good. Suresh Wadhkar's marriage proposal rejection had paved the way for Madhuri Dixit to enter the film field. If that wouldn’t have had happened, Bollywood might not have witnessed such a multi-talented diva. What do you guys have to say about it? Do let us know!
