Madhuri Dixit was the reigning queen of Hindi cinema in the 1990s and is looked up to as an icon by younger actresses like Kriti Sanon, a self-confessed fan.

Sanon emulated her idol on the small screen, grooving to the classic 'Ek Do Teen' track from N Chandra's Tezaab (1988).

Dixit's career had taken an upswing after this song. Sanon and her Bareilly Ki Barfi! (2017) co-star Rajkummar Rao appeared on choreographer-filmmaker Farah Khan’s reality show, Lipsing.

Sanon called it a dream come to true to dress up and dance like Mohini, the character Madhuri Dixit played in Tezaab.

Recalling the experience, Sanon told Cinestaan.com on a chat, “It was a dream moment to dress up in the iconic Mohini costume and perform. I have always been a huge fan of Madhuri Dixit. From dancing on 'Akhiyaan Milaaun' [from Raja (1995)] when I was five to copying all her steps from 'Ek Do Teen' to 'Mera Piya Ghar Aaya' [from the film Yaraana (1995)]. So this performance was a small tribute to her from my side.”

Sanon was in a Lipsing battle with Rajkummar Rao, who didn’t take long to return to the stage where he broke his leg a few weeks ago. Rao showered praise on Sanon.

The actress also lauded Rao for being a good sport.
