    “For me Madhuri is the strongest man I´ve ever met. She´s very very strong-willed, she´s a fantastic actor, very very professional and when I worked with her first time I learned that there is greatness in giving.”

    “She is the most beautiful. One of the actors I have learnt a lot from. Madhuri´s always been there because she is in the heart. And I can´ comment on her dancing, she taught me, saved me from bad dancing.” –

    “You know I´m very close to Madhuri…. I have a lot of warm feelings towards her. Many a time I´ve said this, that she has shown me so many times how to dance, helped me with my scenes, hid me behind her if my dance steps were wrong like in Dil To Pagal Hai.”

They both dominated the industry throughout their career without any hero’s support. Today highest paid actresses are calculated through box office collection, irrespective of their role and part in the film, that is so foolish and biased.

  • bark

    Reena Roy dominated bollywood from 1976 to 1983. Reena Roy was highest paid actress of 1980’s. She had back to back hits of women centred films. Other Top stars Like Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Rekha, mausami Chatterji, Asha Parekh, Vinod mehra had played supporting actor in so many of her films.
    It is very unfortunate that people forget her.Today she in not much seen in circles, so people don’t remember her unlike Hema ji, Rekha, sharmila ji, Madhuri, sridevi etc who are still active. Sadly to remain popular and save ur legacy u must give frequent appearance be it gossips, scandles, affairs advertisement or in any form, just be in news no matter how ur film career is going, u will be considered as star !!! that is dirty face of Showbizz.

  • Nashrique

    Where’s nutan??for me the best actress in Bollywood is nutan,madhubala,nargis,vjayanthimala,,dimple,,meenakumari,,kajol,madhuri n sridevi
