Wishes poured in for Madhuri Dixit Nene as the dancing diva turned 52 today.
Among those who extended heartfelt wishes for the 'Dhak Dhak' girl was her 'Yaarana' co-star Rishi Kapoor who wrote: "Many Happy returns of the day @MadhuriDixit Can never forget the “burqa” incident at Pune station and thereafter the train ride to Hyderabad LOL" [sic]
Here's the tweet -
Why did he say that? Let's rewind some memories. In 2018, Madhuri Dixit wished Rishi Kapoor birthday on Twitter and the actor revealed how both of them wore burqa on their journey to Hyderabad.
"Thank you Madhuri. I am reminded of a hilarious incident-the two of us wore “burqas”(so nobody recognises us) headed to Hyderabad(shoot Yaarana) and my “burqa” fell off thereby all on a crowded Pune Station seeing us. Thereon the journey was hell. So much for being incognito lol," Rishi Kapoor wrote in 2018.
Madhuri replied, "Hahaha...that was one hell of a day! We've had some crazy adventures. Looking back now, I can't stop laughing about it. Cheers to the good times!"
Here's the interaction -
Madhuri Dixit's husband Dr Shriram Nene also penned a heartwarming message for his wife, calling her the "most beautiful woman on the planet."
"To the most beautiful woman on the planet and my own soul mate, wanted to wish you a very happy bday and many happy returns. Loving the journey we are on and look forward to amazing things in the future! Love R." Shriram wrote on Twitter alongside a beautiful picture of the couple.
Madhuri married the US-based cardiovascular surgeon in 1999 and have two sons - Arin and Raayan. The actor, post her marriage, stayed in the U.S until 2011 when she came back to resume her acting career.
A number of Bollywood A-listers also shared wishes for the birthday girl.
