“Gautam Rajadhyaksha always said he had 2 daughters, me & Kajol” – Madhuri

Madhuri Dixit
Madhuri gets to know of her dear friend and in many ways, mentor Gautam Rajadhyaksha's, death late in the evening in the US. Her first reaction is of disbelief. "I can't believe he's gone! He was still so young and vibrant. The last time we spoke he was so excited the school he was starting in Pune. Now he has left behind so much unfinished business, and so many memories."

Madhuri sighs, "Do you know, he always said, 'I've two daughters Madhuri and Kajol'. And when I got married, and later Kajol, he felt he was giving away his daughters. He was such a gentle soul, never said anything hurtful and what a wonderful artiste. We shot some of my most beautiful pictures and I'll be proud of them forever. You know, in those days there was no artificial gimmicks and touch-ups to beautify the pictures and certainly no photo-shop. Gautam shot in natural light. He was so kind. He would always say I looked good from any angle."


Madhuri remembers the wonderful team that she formed with Gautam and makeup artiste Mickey Contractor. "We were always together for photo-shoots. And Gautam would insist I use minimal makeup. For Gautam less was always more. Why did he have to go so soon? I'll miss him."
