Madhuri Dixit? God she is not even an actor!! Half the industry heroines were and are better than her. During her peak, she was always overshadowed by the No.1 then "Sridevi" and when she done Hum Aakpe Hain Kaun the next year she was written off. Madhuri Dixit does not have one single role to be memorable! Actually mentioning her in this list itself is a disgrace to all the great actors. Madhuri Dixit is the most over rated celebrity in Bollywood's history! Remove her from this list and put her in the list of non actors who made a name in Bollywood

Madhuri Dixit-Nene. Am from Kazakhstan and sw couple of films of all actresess but Madhuri has something more.Cant say what exacly but she is the definition of Bollywood cinema. She is complete actress and if ur industry has dance so can dance is also importnt for ur actresess. Her Devdas and Mrityudant r really strong films.And she is very popular even at her 46 and beeing in industry 3 decades. Just respect.

In terms of a complete actress - It is Madhuri Dixit........
But in terms of ACTING TALENT nd most successful career - It is KAJOL !!!!
queen of 2 decades........
Oh
Don"t utter out that she is due 2 kjo or srk after marriage
But just c her movies ; how strongly she dominates the male actor of movie even !!!!!!!

Totally agree with you :)

Kajol !

Some movies of the gr8 Sri g and Mads look "over-acted" by them , but with Kajol ,, it is always a natural act which make audiences to get connected with her character.....

And she never need "art cinema" to prove her the best.....
She adds such a unique charm and energy in her character ,, that even a "girl next door" becomes SUPERB !

MADUBALA, SADLY, her life was cut short, and her life and death is still a great tragedy, she was loved by all and considered the most gorgeous, and did not even need makeup to defy her beauty. she is and was tops at her time, if she had more years and better film projects she would have been the GREATEST HER GENERATION AT EVER SEEN.

AFTER madubala its Waheeda Rahman, Parveen babhi, Mumtaz, Jaya. Rekha madhuri kajol

As Madhuri has proved herself in the remake of Devdas portraying the chandermukhi faded the Vyjantimala Dancing Skill....

See karma, ram avtar, sridevi has very limited expressions in all the songs.
While take a song from saajan and see madhuri gives 10000 of expressions, DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS in just one song.Sridevi's expressions sucked big time.......Even master ji Sarooj Khan said madhuri's expressions are from the heart. while sridevi's expressions are superficial and repeated all over again.....Sridevi is better becuse she did good films and good roles.Well sridevi was known for her expressions before madhuri came in...... After madhuri came in with tezaab song, everyone started doubting about sridevi's expressions and crtisized sridevi's limited expressions..
I have a magazine where it says sridevi's gamut of expressions run from A to B.. and asked her to worked on her extermely limited expressions......Don't get me wrong. as i said, i choose sridevi anyday over madhuri(In term of roles and movie story choice), but when it comes to expressions, dance, and voice madhuri wins anyday

Sri only made faces and irritated at times by her baby voice which looked too fake. Madhuri was warm, feminine, composed and gave very controlled performances. Sridevi fans try to prove a point by writing absurd in these forums and you tube videos but the fact is Madhuri outshone Sridevi completely and it's a thing of the past. Madhuri was, is and will always be way ahead of Sridevi. She made great choices in life and left movies at the peak of her career unlike Sridevi was kind of asked to leave.

I think it's ridiculous when people make such comments to compare actresses with eachother .I luv Rekha's Umrao Jaan,as I luv Meena Kumari's Pakeeza,Madhubala's Mughal-E-Azam, Vijyantimala's Amrapali,as well as Madhuri's Devdas and hum app ki hain Koun performances.Each of these ladies have something special to offer in their own right.I luv to watch them all,they are beautiful n mesmerizing with different qualities.

My vote goes to Madhubala
Madhubala is best in Acting skills,Beauty,Dance,Box office pull, Power, Popularity,Style, Likeability, Icon Status, Glamour, and Versatility
She was even compared with Marilyn Monroe and is also known as Venus Queen.
You can see in film Mughal E Azam the Dance of Madhubala. This film was once again released in 2004 even after death of Madhubala. So by this you can conclude who is best.

Madhuri starring role in Sooraj R. Barjatya's Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! opposite Salman Khan.The film became one of the biggest hits in the history of Hindi cinema. The film was a commercial success and made 135 crore in worldwide breaking the record of Sholay. It became the highest grossing Bollywood film in Hindi cinema history after its theatrical run and held the record for 7 years till the release of Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Dixit's role of a modern yet family-oriented young girl fetched her the third Filmfare Best Actress Award of her career. In the Millenium Edition of the "Guinness Book of World Records" Hum Aapke Hain Kaun became the Bollywood's highest grossing film.2000: In the Millenium Edition of Guinness Book of World Records Madhuri Dixit is reported as the Bollywood's Highest Paid Indian Actress Ever.

1) Madhubala
2) Meena Kumari
3) Rekha
4) Waheeda Rahman
4) Shabana Azmi
5) Rani Mukherjee
6) Madhuri Dixit

The rest dont even come close.

Just because madhuri has awesome facial expressions does not mean she is the best actress bollywood has had. Many people dont think like that.

We all know Aishwarya is best an average actress. She uses her eyes to express a lot and dance around.

LOL who put nargis in their list? She was a chirpy girl like anuksha sharma in rockstar and cried a little.

I'll be honest with you. Madhuri was & is my favourite actor,I've nearly watched all her films. She's gorgeous & lovely,has a 100watt smile,can become the character & emote splendidly & s just the best dancer in the whole wide world. But after I saw some of the anti-Madhuri comments on PV saying that she's not a great actor,more known for her dancing,Sridevi is a much better actress,blah,blah,blah! Then I decided to watch a few Sridevi films & see whether this is true cause I'd not seen any of Sri's films though I found her beautiful & a great dancer. I watched Sadma on youtube that day & let me tell you I was absolutely in awe of Sridevi. The way she played a 6 year old girl & then a grown up woman was heartbreaking,her eyes spoke volumes,truly she was splendid. No other actress before had this sort of effect on me for the first except Meryl Streep,& I became a massive fan of Sridevi. Then I watched Chaalbaaz & of course Mr.India & Chandni & I can confidently say that she's the best actress & most versatile actress ever next to Streep.

people who say aishwarya is the best bollywood actress ever need a reality check, she's a nice person and all.... but i'm sorry to say her acting skills are average at best, nothing spectacular no emotion nothing.....

Anonymous's picture

Madhubala, Meena Kumari, Nargis, Hema Malini, Rekha, Sridevi, Kajol, Madhuri, Rani Mukherji are all the best... madhuri has immense potential, but to date no actor has done justice to her acting abilities, sridevi, who was a very good actress did more adventerous roles and has a lot of versatile characters to her credit, if madhuri had done the same she would be able to prove her skills to her critics. sadly she opted for a lot of commercial/romance type roles which limited her exposure to different characters and roles. films like mrityudand, anjaam, lajja and devdas showcase her versatility, but she needs to do much more.

Khuda Gawah, Gumrah, Judaai and Army are fine examples of Sridevi's talents and ability to play any character given to her. Madhuri is a fantastic actress and has very high potential... she demonstrated this in films like prem granth, mrityudand, lajja and devdas... even sangeet and khel showed her versatility and ability to play various characters in one film... Beta and Raja were praised for Madhuri's performance and the fact that she overshadowed the hero in both movies.

I can only cringe when I see the lack of depth in Kareena's eyes during speech. Her "acting" is that of character acting (i.e the young modern 2000s girl having busty thighs,). Her expressions always looks pathetic. Katrina is nothing more a soft and beautiful face...Ashwariya was just international icon in term of beauty...kajol just dependent actress..rani mukherjee exceptional actress but not beautiful and good dancer.

Anyway, all these bollywood actresses nowaydays are copies and wannabees of the Rekha, Hema Malini, Madhuri and Sridevi. They invented nothing, they come and disappear without a trace. Bollywood = boringwood, the real creativity is in regional cinema....Not now a days actress
