MUMBAI: Madhuri Dixit, often hailed as Bollywood's "Dhak Dhak" girl, had a rocky start in the film industry.

Despite her move, Madhuri continued to remain a beloved figure in Bollywood.

Madhuri made a successful comeback to Indian cinema with films like "Aaja Nachle," "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani," "Total Dhamaal," and "Kalank." She also ventured into the digital space with the web series "Fame Game."
