Madhuri Dixit inspired ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha…’, reveals Javed Akhtar!
And we had thought all the while that it was Manisha Koirala! It has almost been twenty years since the film ’1942: A Love Story’ and its song had become a rage, and ever since it had remained an evergreen song in the minds of music lovers.
Lyricist Javed Akhtar has now revealed that it was Madhuri Dixit whom he had in mind while penning the lyrics of the film, since Madhuri was initially supposed to do the project. She was replaced by Manisha later.
He made the revelation at a recent event that had Madhuri herself, Pakistani actor-singer Ali Zafar and singer Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan in attendance.
