Amitabh Bacchan and Madhuri Dixit never worked together because of this actor
When a new actor enters the industry, he or she dreams of working with the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. He has worked with a number of younger actors, including Taapsee Pannu and Deepika Padukone, and will soon be seen in Brahmastra alongside Alia Bhatt. However, the most beautiful actress and dancer, Madhuri Dixit, has never worked with Amitabh Bachchan and has never been proposed to.
Anil Kapoor, the actor, is the reason for this. Anil Kapoor did not want Madhuri to collaborate with Amitabh Bachchan on a film or a song. Madhuri made her Hindi film debut in 1984 with the film ‘Abodh,’ which bombed at the box office. She made a few more films after that, but they were all flops. Madhuri was considered a bad luck charm at the time, and no male actor wanted to star opposite her.
During this time of struggle, Anil stood by Madhuri and offered her Tezaab in 1988, which changed her life. The film was a smash hit, and Madhuri became famous for her song ‘Ek Do Teen,’ which was choreographed by Saroj Khan. After Tezaab, Madhuri and Anil became a hit couple, starring in several blockbuster films such as ‘Beta,’ ‘Ram Lakhan,’ ‘Hifazat,’ ‘Parinda,’ and many more. Madhuri became a superstar after all of these films, and every actor and director wanted her in their next project.
Following this, Madhuri was approached to star in a major film alongside Amitabh Bachchan, but Anil Kapoor asked her to decline the offer. Anil became possessive of her and refused to share this hit pair with Amitabh. Amitabh Bachchan and Anil Kapoor were the two biggest stars in the 1980s and 1990s, and they were considered rivals who avoided sharing screen space.
Madhuri rejected the film because she couldn’t say no to Anil Kapoor, who had helped launch her career. However, Madhuri never worked with Anil Kapoor again. From 2001 to 2019, they didn’t make a single film together. They reunited after 18 years to do Indra Kumar’s ‘Total Dhamaal’ with an ensemble cast in 2019.
In terms of work, Madhuri Dixit was most recently seen in ‘Kalank,’ and she released a new song called ‘Candle’ during the lockdown. Anil Kapoor was most recently seen in Mohit Suri’s ‘Malang,’ in which he co-starred with Aditya Roy Kapoor, Disha Patani, and Kunal Kemmu.
