Career details

After a dismal acting debut in Painter Babu, Meenakshi Seshadri co-starred in Hero with Jackie Shroff, another rookie. Meenakshi rose to fame quickly after the film’s success as a box office smash. She was given a chance to work with superstar Rajesh Khanna right after Hero’s commercial triumph. Awara Baap featured her in a dual role alongside Khanna, but the movie struggled to find an audience.

She then made appearances in a number of critically and financially unsuccessful movies, such as Love Marriage, Paisa Yeh Paisa, and Lover Boy. Rajinikanth played the adversary in her subsequent movie, Bewafai, which starred Khanna. When Ghai made Meri Jung one of the highest-grossing movies of 1985, he once more put her alongside Anil Kapoor.

In the films Aandhi Toofan, Main Balwan, Dilwaala, Parivaar, Bees Saal Baad, Pyar Ka Karz, and Shandaar, she collaborated with fellow dancer Mithun Chakraborthy. However, her on-screen chemistry with Anil Kapoor is thought to be the best, and it has been her most successful and best partnership.

The media frequently praises her collaborations with Shroff, Rishi Kapoor, Sunny Deol, and Vinod Khanna. Aag Se Khelenge, Meri Jung, Awaargi, and Ghar Ho Toh Aisa are some of her popular movies with Anil Kapoor. However, Love Marriage, Amba, Joshilaay, Vijay, and Humlaa were box office duds. She tied a rakhi to Anil Kapoor in Inteqam, where the moment was also shot in a Fiat automobile, and she has a steamy kissing scene with him in Vijay.
