In 2016, on a talk show hosted by Anupam Kher, Madhuri Dixit narrated the account of her first meeting with Shriram Nene. She said that it all started in Los Angeles when her brother sneakily invited Nene’s family over to their home. She had a feeling that once everyone will leave her family will nudge her and ask her about one person in particular. She wasn’t new to situations like this, and prior to that particular day, she used to dodge the bullet. However, when it came to Shriram Nene, she was genuinely impressed by him and for the first time, she confessed that she liked him.
The fact that Shriram didn’t know who she was, and got to know her first as a person and then as a movie star, was very refreshing for Madhuri.
Thereafter, the two decided to tie the knot and for many years Madhuri lived in the US. She was at the top of her game when she got married. However, she was very clear that nothing else will matter if she finds the right life partner, and she found the same in Shriram.
