Bollywood’s Dhak Dhak girl Madhuri Dixit turned 57 today. In the 90s, she was counted among the highest-paid artists. Moreover, she had charged more fees than Salman Khan in ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun’. The situation at that time was such that Madhuri was offered several films simultaneously. The director-producer used to follow Madhuri back and forth. Due to many films being offered simultaneously, Madhuri was able to do only a few selected films among them. The critically acclaimed actor refused to do many films despite having good scripts because she was shooting for another film at that time. In such a situation, these films went to other actresses, who bagged one of the most successful films of her career. Have a look at the list of films rejected by Madhuri Dixit that set other actresses’ careers.


Sunny Deol and Meenakshi Sheshadri starrer film Damini, released in 1993, was first offered to Madhuri Dixit. But due to the lack of dates, Madhuri could not do this film. This film proved to be a super hit and made Meenakshi a star.
