Bollywood and controversies go hand in hand. Even after a sabbatical, Madhuri Dixit was welcome in the industry with open arms. Nevertheless, not everything has been that perfect in her life. From a controversial relationship to a much debated professional life, her stint in Bollywood is nothing short of a filmy drama.
So, we bring to you a compilation of the much talked controversies of the actress.
Madhuri ruled hearts in the 90s! She romanced Sanjay Dutt in several hit films such as Saajan and Khalnayak, which gave impetus to their offscreen love life. Besides Sanjay, Madhuri was also linked to Anil Kapoor.
While she was trying to make a mark in the industry, Madhuri romanced Vinod Khanna in Dayavan, who was 20 years older than him. She went ahead and shot for an intimate kissing scene, where their kiss made a controversial stir.
Being at the top comes at a cost and Madhuri paid the cost of making rivals in Bollywood. While Sridevi had already been a reigning queen during the 80s, Madhuri made an impressive market on filmmakers with Tezaab. Her rivalry with Juhi Chawla was also quite infamous during those days, but Gulaab Gang sorted out everything.
A couple of years back, Madhuri faced the ire of Maharashtra government. She refused a deal to be a brand ambassador for Maharashtra Tourism, since she didn't get the payment she wanted. However, Madhuri asking for a whopping 9-10 crore sum for being the brand ambassador of Maharashtra made people to call her as a greedy woman.
Fallout with Manager
The actress had shared a long run of 28 years companionship with her manager Rakesh Nath. Finally, one day Rikku got a call from Madhuri stating her husband will reportedly look after her work. However, she reconciled with her man as she invited him for a special screening of one of her film.
