It’s a compliment to be the muse of an artist described as the “Picasso of India”. Maqbool Fida Hussain passed away on Thursday in London at the age of 95. During his illustrious and long life as a painter, M F Hussain was inspired by a lot of beautiful women.
Madhuri Dixit tops the list of Hussain’s muses. Hussain himself admitted to have watched her movie Hum Aapke Hain Kaun 73 times, which means he gave close to 219 hours of his precious life to just this one movie. This doesn’t include the number of hours he spent painting the canvases of Madhuri Dixit.
Hussain once described Madhuri’s beauty as ‘heavenly’. He said that she has a face and smile one can never tire of watching.
M F Hussain fulfilled his wish of directing Madhuri Dixit in the movie Gajagamini.
