In June 2022, Madhuri shared an adorable birthday wish for her mother on social media. Sharing some unseen photos, she wrote, "Happy Birthday, Aai! They say a mother is a daughter’s befriend. They couldn’t be any more right. From everything that you’ve done for me, the lessons that you’ve taught have been the biggest gift for me from you. I wish you only good health & happiness."
Snehlata's first recording:
In 2013, Madhuri's mother joined her to record a song for 'Gulaab Gang'. Narrating the incident, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha told IANS, “When we approached Madhuri to sing a song in the film, she happily agreed to do so. When she came for the recording, she came with her mom and we discovered her mom is a very good singer. So we asked her mom if she could sing a song. Eventually, we got both Madhuri and her mom to sing a song in the film.”
