Dancing diva Madhuri Dixit performed live at the Stardust Awards 2014 ceremony today. One of the all-time best dancers of Bollywood, Madhuri had the audience captivated, all through her performance.
Madhuri Dixit has her own dance academy and an online portal where she teaches dance to interested participants. Madhuri is also part of a reality dance show where she is the celebrity judge.
It was a treat to watch the dancing queen shake her leg to popular numbers.

This year the B’Town divas gave some mind blowing performances. We saw them experimenting with their looks and going beyond their comfort zone. Priyanka Chopra excelled in her performance as Mary Kom, Parineeti Chopra’s crazy antics in “Hasee Toh Phasee” made us laugh, Kangana Ranaut played her character in “Queen” like a dream, and so were the other performances.
So here’s a list of actresses who gave outstanding performance in 2014:
Priyanka Chopra’s first release of 2014 was Ali Abbas Zafar’s “Gunday”. She played an undercover cop in the movie and was appreciated for her performance.
She was next seen in sports biopic “Mary Kom”. The actress played the titular character in the movie. Both Priyanka and the movie were highly appreciated. She not just transformed herself physically for her role, but also performed it skilfully making every emotion come alive.
Alia Bhatt made her Bollywood debut with “Student of the Year” in 2012. In 2014 she was seen in “Highway”, “2 States” and “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”.
In “Highway” she played a teenage girl who develops Stockholm syndrome after being abducted. Praising her for her performance in the movie, critics said that she has grown as an actor and is one of the most promising new comers in the industry. “2 States” saw her play a south Indian girl opposite Arjun Kapoor. Alia was praised for making her character so real and playing it with such ease.
Her last release in 2014 was “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”. Alia played Kavya Pratap Singh and received mixed responses for her performance.
“Queen” was Kangana Ranaut’s first release of 2014. The film and Kangana’s performance won unanimous acclaim from the critics and audience alike. After the movie she was also called the ‘queen’ of hearts. She portrayed Alka Singh in the black comedy “Revolver Rani”. The movie got mixed reviews from the critics, but Kangana’s performance was well received. She was also seen in “Ungli”. The actress did not have a meaty role in the movie, but was outstanding in the parts she had.
Rani Mukerji made her comeback with Pradeep Sarkar’s “Mardaani”. The actress played the role of Shivani Shivaji Roy, a Maharashtrian policewoman involved in a kidnapping case that leads her to uncover secrets of human trafficking in India. She was praised for her performance and was said to be the prime asset of the movie.
Sonakshi Sinha was seen in “Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty” and “Action Jackson” in 2014. The actress received mixed responses for her performance in both the movies.
“Bang Bang!” was Katrina Kaif’s only release in 2014. She was seen romancing Hrithik Roshan in the movie. From shooting bullets to riding bikes, Katrina did it all. She herself did some of the action sequences in the movie. Her performance received mixed responses from the critics.
This year Sonam Kapoor was seen in “Bewakoofiyan” and “Khoobsurat”. Her performance in the first release was not well-received by the critics, however, she made a mark with “Khoobsurat”. The actress was highly praised for playing the character of a fun-loving and full-of-life physiotherapist Milli.
In 2014, Shraddha Kapoor’s first release was Mohit Suri’s “Ek Villain”. The actress essayed a bubbly, fun-loving girl in the movie and she played it beautifully. She was next seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s “Haider”. She played a young Kashmiri journalist in the movie and critics called her performance to be surprisingly composed.
Vidya Balan was seen in “Shaadi Ke Side Effects” and “Bobby Jasoos” in 2014. In her first release she played a regular working woman. The movie was said to be a bit overstretched by the critics, but the actress was praised for playing her character with such ease. “Bobby Jasoos” was India’s first female detective film. Vidya donned 12 avatars in the movie and was appreciated for her performance.
On the Bollywood front, Deepika Padukone was seen in “Finding Fanny” and “Happy New Year”. In “Finding Fanny” she played the character of a young widow. Though the movie did not do well at the box-office, it received positive reviews from the critics. Deepika wowed the critics once again with her performance in the movie.
She was last seen in Farah Khan’s “Happy New Year” where she played a Marathi bar dancer. She made the audience laugh with her broken English and her performance was praised by the critics too.
Parineeti Chopra’s first release in 2014 was “Hasee Toh Phasee”. She played the role of a mad scientist Meeta in the movie and her crazy gestures and funny antics made the audience laugh. Her performance was well-received by the critics and some even called it an award-winning performance. Her next release was “Daawat-e-Ishq”. Parineeti was outstanding in every scene she did and was praised for her performance by the critics too.
“Kill/Dil” was her last release of 2014. She got positive response for her performance and was said to be convincing in her part.
Madhuri Dixit was seen in “Dedh Ishqiya” and “Gulaab Gang” in 2014. Both the movies received critical acclaim and the actress was applauded for her performance.
