In one of the videos, Madhuri talked about her hookstep in the song Tu Shayar Hai Main Teri Shayari from Saajan (1991). Madhuri recalled her conversation with choreographer Chinni Prakash and shared, “Chinni Prakash told me, ‘For this, Tu Shayar Hai, I will give you a great move (twin fingers).”
She added: “When he showed me this, I said, ‘Yeh kya movement huya? Yeh kaunsa shayar hai? Yeh kaesa shayar hota hai (What is this movement? Who is this poet? What kind of poet is he)? ‘ Madhuri then said Chinni assured her it would be a famous move to which she added ‘it did’.
Madhuri also grooved and performed several of her songs including Ek Do Teen (Tezaab), Yeh Mausam Ka Jadu (Hum Aapke Hain Koun), Choli Ke Peeche Kya Hai (Khal Nayak), Dhak Dhak Karne Laga (Beta), Bahut Pyaar Karte Hai and Dekha Hai Pehli Baar (Saajan). She also sang her part from the song Kaahe Chhed (Devdas).
In one of the clips, about the choreography of late Saroj Khan of Bada Dukh Dina O Ramji, Madhuri said, “She got the song choreographed blind. Sarojji performed in her own style. Subhash (Ghai) ji said, ‘This is ‘not the character of the girl’.” After Subhash Ghai explained Madhuri’s character in the film, Saroj said “Oh! And I choreographed the whole song.” However, they later came to a mutual decision.
Madhuri also sang and talked about Himesh’s song Jhalak Dikhla Ja (Aksar). She said, “When my son was three years old, your song Jhalak Dikhla Jaa was released. He loved the song so much that every time I sat in the car he said, ‘Mamma, Aaja Aaja’. I heard it song many times.” Later, Himesh sang the song to Madhuri while smiling. The current season of Indian Idol is hosted by Aditya Narayan.
