Madhuri Dixit's fans have named a star after her in the Orion constellation. The members of the Madhuri Dixit - The Empress presented her the certificate on the sets of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. Here are the pictures of Madhuri with the certificate.

Her fans were elated to be presenting this honour to her. Madhuri herself tweeted about it saying, "Wanted to thank my fans for the honor. They had a star in the Orion Constellation named after me!"

Madhuri Dixit is not the only star to be sitting in outer space. The International Lunar Geographic Society has christened a lunar crater in the moon's Sea of Tranquillity after Shah Rukh Khan.

How do you go about naming a star after someone? Apparently, the International Star Registry, founded in 1979 offers these services. It sells packages including framed and unframed certificates, personalized jewelry, plush toys, and pet rocks identifying "naming" of a star . However, it seems that the naming services are limited to an entry in the book and carries no scientific or official authenticity.

Interestingly, the International Astronomical Union (IAU), which is the internationally recognized authority which designates stars, planets, asteroids, comets, and other heavenly bodies according to internationally accepted rules, does not sell naming rights nor does it authorize any other company or organization to do so.

Well, whatever be it, I guess it is the thought that counts. Madhuri is and will always be adored by her fans; the star with the lightening smile.

I dont like her at all. very plain for me

wow gogeours madhuri dixit she is the best dancer and beautiful smile in the world the dhak dhak girl no one as beautiful as in boliwood

she is the first actress being famous even in universe. now she is the real star. good for her!! this should become an international news.

even though she doesn't work in films anymore...some people called her old and desperate but still she has so many fans who loves her...I really doubt if any other female star would be appreciated and loved to this height!

Sorry I am not a madhuri fan. She is ok not a classy looking yaar

she looks so young in the last pic.. wow.. love madhuri

Awww, she seems very touched and happy with the lovely gesture from her fans, how sweet! :)

there will be cheap publicity tactics cooked up every week to keep her career alive. JDJ season 5 has lowest TRP of all seasons so far.

Yeah take that haters! SRK has a crater on the Moon named after him!!! Madhuri is only the 2nd person to have something in the Heavens named after her, SRK was the first and his is more official too as it was named by the International Lunar Geographic Society!
