Mad about Mads' smile
if there is one person in Bollywood who's known for her million dollar smile, it has to be Madhuri Dixit Nene.
Ever since she made her debut with ‘Abodh’, the actress has won a million hearts with that sweet little curve on her face. The lady with the a thousand watt smile talks to CS about its importance:
For me, a smile is the most important thing. It can melt mountains, solve problems, make someone fall in love, make someone’s day, save someone’s life and much more. I totally believe in the power of the smile. My smile has helped me a lot, in times of stress, trouble, hectic schedules. It is important for everyone to smile and flex those muscles regularly.
There is no secret to my smile. I am a very happy person in general and that happiness reflects on my face all the time. I have lived that way all my life. My face is a reflection of my heart and feelings. And I am a very expressive person. The positive attitude towards life, according to me, is the oomph factor in my smile.
I was a mischievous kid. In my school, I would always get caught for either talking or creating some ruckus. In one such situation, my teacher caught me chatting with my other three friends. I looked up and flashed my pearlies at her. She was pleased, picked on the other three girls and punished them. I was saved! (laughs)
Free and fabulous
My smile has fetched me a special prize in an elocution competition. While I was giving a speech, I forgot it in the middle. I smiled at the judges and asked permission to start all over again and I did well this time. I was sure I wasn’t going to win anything since I had stopped in between but I got a special prize just for that confident smile. (smiles)
I smile because...
People in my life are important and are the reason why I smile. My kids especially, they are so innocent and cute that even looking at them makes me smile. They crack the most innocent jokes and make sure I smile when I am around them. Apart from that, I love Madhubala’s smile. She was a woman with a magical smile. Even today no one can match her.
