There is no denying that Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit were one of the hottest on-screen pairs of the silver screen. Their sizzling chemistry pulled a myriad of movie-goers to the theatres and they also gave many hit films together.

Sanjay Dutt Says 'No'
Sanjay Dutt was quoted as saying, "Madhuri Dixit is a good human being and the best dancer we have. There was terrific chemistry between us on screen.

Sanjay Dutt Reveals He & Madhuri Stopped Talking Halfway During Mahaanta Shoot
While speaking of his fall-out with Madhuri, Sanjay Dutt was quoted as saying, "There was terrific chemistry between us on screen. There was a certain magic in Saajan, Sahibaan and Khal-Nayak. Mahaanta, our last film together was a disaster because halfway through, MD (Madhuri Dixit) and I stopped talking. Naturally, the film was completed under stress."
