One of the best dances in the industry to date, Devdas’s Dola Re (2002) featuring Maddhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai is a classic. The two actresses looked like real Indian beauties in the song and we can’t take our eyes off them every time we watch the video.

Madhuri definitely knows how to get the audience’s attention with her movements and expressions and she did exactly that in this issue. Sung by the talented Sunidhi Chauhan and lyrics by Piyush Mishra, this song stole our hearts.
Kay Sera Sera
To date, no song in the industry can beat the spirit of Pukar’s Kay Sera Sera (2000) track. Every time we watch the video, we can’t take our eyes off the dance moves of Madhuri Dixit and Prabhudeva. They certainly gave Michael Jakson tough competition. Composed by AR Rahman and lyrics written by Javed Akhtar, this track is not just a love song, but also a dance number with amazing groovy beats. We love how through the song both Madhuri and Prabhudeva explain what love means to them.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Devdas (2002) will always be remembered as one of the best romantic movies. Maara Dala with Madhuri Dixit was wonderfully choreographed and executed.
