Madhuri Bhattacharya is a Bangalore-born girl, who lived with her parents in R.T. Nagar, Bangalore till fame beckoned her and she shifted base to Mumbai.
She is a self proclaimed book worm and was an enthusiastic student. She studied in the Army School and later went on to study psychology at Mount Carmel College and then law at Ramaiah College. It was by chance that she was asked by one of her close friends to be a part of the May Queen contest at the Catholic Club, after which she went on to participate and win in Miss Bangalore and finally the Camay Mega Model contest held in Mumbai. Madhuri also won a few more beauty contests. From Microsoft to Mangola, she has been the face of all leading brands down South.
Madhuri started acting in Kannada films such as “Khushi” and “Bisi Bisi” and modelled for quite some time. Then she did a music album with Sonu Nigam “Neene Bari Neene”. She also acted in TV serials, which include “Kuch Love, Kuch Masti” on Sahara One. And finally, she was offered the role in “Prem Kaa Game”. She was rumored to be having an affair with her co-star Arbaaz Khan. Apparently, Arbaaz is quite impressed with Madhuri and has even signed her for his next film “Bachelor’s Party”.
When she was working in Kannada films, the producers wanted her to become fat, while in Bollywood, people prefer her to be slim. Madhuri plans to take to teaching and start a school some time in future.
