Parinda meant for Madhuri both another commercial success and critically acclaimed performance. Directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the flick has gained almost a cult status over the years and till now remains one of the best gangester films Bollywood has ever produced. While the main conflict centered around two brothers Kishen and Karan, played by Jackie Shroff and Anil Kapoor, and their relationship with the underworld, represented by brilliant Nana Patekar, Madhuri as Anil´s love interest brought feminity, gentleness and overwhelming innocence into otherwise very dark, masculine film. Her role was not long, yet it held a lot of significance. The character of “Paro” was partly Karan´s conscience as well as the light in the dark he could hold onto. She was also shown as very independent and strong person, without second thoughts cutting away from a beloved one if she thought he has left the right path out of cowardness.
It is interesting to note that originally the rolw of Kishen was supposed to be played by Amitabh Bachchan, however since Jackie Shroff finally bagged the film, yet another oportunity so see Mr. Bachchan and Madhuri on screen together went by.
Parinda also marked the first time Madhuri worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The future director was VVC´s assistent back in the day and took it upon himself to choreograph the song “Tumse Milke” from the film. It was from here that his obsession with Madhuri began and he kept chasing her for years, only to be successful more than a decade later, when she accepted the role of Chandramukhi in his version of Devdas.
