When Madhuri Dixit was at the peak of her career, Sunny Deol’s name also used to be one of the top stars of Bollywood. Despite this, he did only one film together as a hero-heroine.
The name of the film was ‘Tridev’ which was a superhit. Directed by Rajiv Rai, the film featured a song ‘Main Teri Mohabbat Me’ on Sunny Deol-Madhuri Dixit which is still heard today.
After all, why is Sunny Deol and Madhuri Dixit just doing the same film together? There is also no conflict between them. Both are known for their good nature.
At that time, Madhuri Dixit was paired with Anil Kapoor. Madhuri did the most film in her career with Anil Kapoor.
Anil Kapoor and Sunny Deol had a mutual rivalry. Anil’s Kapoor brother Boney Kapoor cleverly built his brother’s career. He teamed up with Anil’s Kapoor pair of big heroines Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit of that period. Madhuri and Anil’s Kapoor secretary were also the same.
The producer who used to come to sign Madhuri Dixit would make him think of Anil’s Kapoor name as secretary hero or tell Bonnie that the producer is planning a film about Madhuri Dixit. Boney Kapoor used to make Anil Kapoor fit in that film. In this way, Anil Kapoor reached the success riding on the shoulders of the heroines.
Since Sunny Deol was also a big star, it was tried that Sunny Deol should not do any film with Madhuri Dixit and thus Sunny Deol-Madhuri Dixit was able to do only one film as a hero-heroine.
