5. Madhuri Dixit
Sigh…she’s just too good! Perhaps it’s pure nostalgia that has the everlasting Madhuri Dixit on this list, but who can seriously deny the unbelievable charm and grace she possesses? The second she began swaying her hips to ‘Aaja Nachle’ it felt like all was right in the world. Then when she flashed her heart-warming smile it was as if heaven had come down to Earth! Okay, granted I’m exaggerating but truly she brings back heart-warming memories of the filmy years gone by and with Aaja Nachle has proven that she still knows how to move — and more importantly, act. Though her performance was sensational, a half-baked role held her back greatly and one wishes that the film gave her more opportunity to do something completely different. Nevertheless, she brings her own charm to any role she does and this in itself is admirable. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait another five years to see her back on screen.
