Husain was always full of excitement and ever on the move, reminisces Madhuri Dixit, the celebrated painter's first Bollywood muse with whom he had planned an ambitious project on Indian cinema.

New Delhi, May 24 : Oh how women used to scramble for the latest Bollywood clothes, be it that blue sari Madhuri Dixit wore in "Hum Aapke Hain Kaun" or the short kurti with patiala salwaar donned by Rani Mukerji in "Bunty Aur Babli". But the influence of Hindi film industry fashion is waning, say designers.
Some put the blame for it on the extensive exposure to international fashion, thanks to TV, fashion magazines and the internet, and others on the fading aura of Bollywood stars.
New Delhi, Feb 28 : You can't be in showbiz and not be visible - but that doesn't apply to Madhuri Dixit. If she ruled the box office in her prime, the soaring TRPs of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" now prove she is equally saleable when she is a mother of two and spends much of her time being a homemaker in the US.
"We had been trying to get Madhuri as a judge for the past two seasons. She has been known as a dancing diva and who better could we have got for a show which is all about perfect dancing," Ajay Bhalwankar, programming head, Sony, told IANS.
