Madhuri Dixit made her silver screen debut in Hiren Nag's 'Abodh' (1984).
Talking about her first Hindi film 'Abodh', Madhuri said: "My journey as an actress began from this film. When I signed this film, I had absolutely no idea what this industry was all about. I vividly recall an incident that proves this point. It was an indoor shot and the director was explaining its details to me. Out of habit, I leaned on the wall beside me. I was not aware of the fact that the wall was made of delicate cardboard. The minute I touched it, my hand went right through the wall! For the first time in my life, I realized what a film set actually is."
