He may have earned a huge fan following after his stint in "Kai Po Che!" but Sushant Singh Rajput, who has made a successful transition from the small screen to the big screen, is a great fan of Madhuri Dixit and went out of his way to express his fondness for the screen diva.
Sushant shared his feelings while promoting his forthcoming film "Shuddh Desi Romance" on the Colors channel's celebrity dance reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6", which Madhuri is co-judging with filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-cum-filmmaker Remo D'Souza.
He said he bows in front of three women and Madhuri is one them.
"Mera sar sirf teen auraton ke saamne jhookta hai... Ek hai Devi Maa (goddess), ek meri apni maa aur ek Maa-Dhuri ke saamne (I bow my head only in front of three women... One is the goddess, one is my mother, and last one is Madhuri)," Sushant said.
He further asked the 'Dhak-Dhak' girl to dance with him, saying: "Maine aapke gaano pe naachna sikha hai, toh kya aap aaj mere gaane par nachogi? (I learnt dancing by jiving on your songs, so will you dance on my song today?)."
To his delight, Madhuri obliged him and his co-star Parineeti Chopra and joined them onstage.
Sushant, who had participated in season four of "Jhalak..." and had wowed Madhuri with his dancing skills, said he missed hearing her pet dialogue "purrrfect" (perfect) and asked her say it for him.
Madhuri sportingly said: "I always used to say that Sushant is so very talented and it's 'purrrfect' (perfect) that he is where he is today...."
