The Magic of Madhuri

For the past seven days we have been celebrating the gorgeous diva Madhuri Dixit and her contribution to Indian cinema. Whatever could be said, was said. Whatever could be posted, made it´s way to internet. And still there is so much uncovered ground! Because I know that many people are still working on something, I decided to ignore the deadline given by the May 15th. Everyone is most welcome to send me the links to their articles during the next week also, you can be sure I shall add it to this post too.

And so HAPPY BIRTHDAY MADHURI-JI. For all the smiles, for all the dances, for all the emotions you have shared with us through your craft. You remain very much loved and in eyes of many unmatchable. This all is dedicated to you as an expression of love your fans and well-wishers, as an appreciation of all cinema lovers. Happy birthday to you.

And here comes the promised logo made by Vishal K Bharadwaj. And he has done a brilliant job! (thank you!!) All the participants are most welcome to use the image on their blogs if they want to!

And here are the articles published under The Magic of Madhuri week banner, in order as they were published:

Those are all the articles I have received. If I have forgotten any, do not hesitate and let me know! Thank you all for participating and making this week special!!!


  1. I'm sorry I couldn't hand anything in. I was clueless about what to write to be honest. Your blog pretty much has everything I think about Madhuri.

    I will definitely read all these articles. I've read the ones you wrote so far - and they're GREAT!!

    When are you sending them to Madhuri? Do you think you'll get an answer?

  2. Thank you most ardently! :)

    I have already posted this to Madhuri, and I don´t think I´ll get an answer. But there is a chance she will see this, and that is enough for me.

  3. True true!!! =))

    I hope she gets it, reads it and *crossing fingers* replies somehow. A tweet would be amazing!

    Great job though Ally for organising this!

  4. My post (for now... I hope to get a better one up later). Sorry if this is too late...

  5. Thanks so much for organizing this! I had a lotttt of fun participating and I can see that a lot of good posts came out of it! Now you've inspired me to perhaps try and start a Shahrukh week in November, haha! :)

  6. UtesFan89 - thank you so much for contributing! Link has been added! Most interesting views I must say!

    The Bolly 'Hood - I´ve had a lot of fun reading all those great articles! Thank you for taking your time with this! And definitely do the SRK week! I´m 100% participating!!!

  7. I had so much fun! And I've got one or two posts left to finish up for this week on Madhuri :)

    Thanks for organising it1

  8. YAY! In that case I´m looking forward for more!

  9. Gaja-ji,
    Thanks so much for organizing this Magic of Madhuri Week! I've got a lot of reading of blogpost to do now.
    All the best!

  10. Great idea, and how wonderful is it, that so many people contributed!?

  11. Sita-ji - Thank you again for being the part of this!

    Lime(tte) - I was really excited about every single of those posts!

  12. I have nothing against senior actreses doing a comeback. I loved Waheeda Rehman and Sharmila Tagore - because they played their role - that was apt.

    But the current lot trying to do a comeback- are all 40 something trying to be 20 something You know what I mean- Less said the better.

    These are very aggressive in their comebacks- they force themselves on us via endorsments, talk shows and reality shows.

    When you look at these lot - it is very sad indeed. Once in limelight - I suppose it is very difficult to remain in the shadows.
    So do anything- anything to get back to limelight- item number, reality shows, talk shows, get an attitude or an accent, - ANYTHING.
