The 3 Beauty Queens

Originally Published on: Sep 3, 2010 @ 0:25, on my other Blog. Now shifted here.


I wonder; why I didn’t compile this before. Reading through celebrity look-alikes, and commenting; as if I got a push to press this.

I had wanted to do this since a long time now. I noticed this when young. Exactly when Madhuri Dixit had entered the Indian Film Industry. Mom was an ardent Suchitra (of the Suchitra- Uttam fame) fan. I adored Madhubala. My joys knew no bound when Mughal-e-azam was redone in color. I had always wanted to see “her” in color..!! Who would not know of her charismatic smile anyways?

Here are some pics that I could google. I had and still feel an uncanny resemblance amongst the three.

Here mom, remember we had talked about this?

Madhu Bala- Suchitra Sen

Suchitra Sen- Madhuri Dixit
Madhu Bala- Suchitra Sen
Madhuri Dixit- Madhu Bala
Madhu Bala- Suchitra Sen
Madhuri Dixit- Madhu Bala- Madhuri Dixit
Suchitra Sen- Madhu Bala
Madhuri Dixit- Suchitra Sen
Madhu Bala- Madhuri Dixit
Suchitra Sen- Madhu Bala
Madhu Bala- Suchitra Sen- Madhuri Dixit

What say readers? Don’t they look so much like each other?

    Madhuridixit my all time favorite actress
    I love madhuri

  2. Booleyzoo says:

    Never thought madhuri looks anything like madhubala.

  3. Hameeda says:

    When Madhuri entered Bollywood, no one had seen such beauty since the days of Suchitra Sen and Madhubala. She is a combination of both of these screen legends.
    Madhuri is one of Bollywood’s most influential actresses of all time.
    but my vote is for Madhuri Dixit

  4. Hameeda says:

    Madhuri Dixit is like a rose (flower)
    Madhuri Dixit is my all time favourite

  5. Mehdi Rahi says:

    There is something in the voice of Suchitra Sen. Her personality is in different class. both Madhubala, Suchitra Sen are the top most beautiful women in Indian film history, there is some similarities in their face..mala singha also looks little bit like them

  6. Eric says:

    Since they are all of similar genetic and cultural background, it’s no surprise that their appearances are so similar. After all, they were chosen from the same ‘ideal’ of beauty.

    Madhubala is the cutest… She is perfect blend of everything..

  11. They really do look alike! I was going to say how beautiful Madhuri Dixit is, but seeing as how Suchitra Sen and Madhu Bala look exactly the same…they’re all beautiful!

    • Olivia says:

      Hey, I am glad you liked it.. Thats right. Suchitra Sen was angelic and Madhu Bala- divine. Her iconic smile is still incomparable. She has been (is no more- we lost her to cancer) raised to a Diva’s level.

      • Arnab says:

        Madhuri is beauty queen, but all her photos with advanced make up and edited by photoshop, where Madhubala and Suchitra get minimum make up and no photoshop that time.
        Madhuri is charming, her smile is million dollars. Madhubala is really divine, look at her expression in the song ‘Mohe panghat pe’ its just speechless and Suchitra is all together, her heavenly smile, with soft but sharp appeals and angelic beauty specially without make up in old bengali movies, is ultimate. They are real Indian beauties of the century.

        • Olivia says:

          So well said Arnab!
          Yes, with the advent of PS, anyone can stand up or out as a beauty queen!
          I still see so much resemblance in all the 3 fairies (sigh)

          Hugs xoxo
