The Dhak Dhak girl was very disappointed when Doordarshan rejected her
There was a time when dancing diva Madhuri Dixit was not good enough for Doordarshan, which said 'no' to a TV show starring her and Benjamin Gilani.
According to SpotboyE, the bureaucrats at New Delhi's Mandi House, where Doordarshan headquarters is located, had rejected a TV serial titled Bombay Meri Hai starring Madhuri Dixit way back in the mid-1980s. The TV show was to be directed by Anil Tejani.
The Dhak Dhak girl was very disappointed. She again faced the same thing with Govind Nihalani's offbeat film because it didn't happen.
Finally, she got Rajshri Productions' Abodh (1984) but that also didn't work well for her. Later, Subhash Ghai relaunched her with an ad campaign in the weekly film paper Screen.
And the rest is history...
