Not just the performances, but Devdas earned accolades for iconic songs and dance numbers. The song ‘Dola Re Dola’ is still a hit among the audience. The flick, which was also nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Language Film also starred Jacky Shroff in an important role.
On a related note, Madhuri was last seen in Marathi film 'Bucket List.' Currently, the actress is seen as the judge on dance reality show Dance Deewane.
