Husain loved Amrita Rao's beauty so much in Vivaah that predicted that she had a long career ahead of her.

It is said that Husain watched Vivaah 20 times and then sketched Amrita on canvas. Since her character in the film was called Poonam, Husain drew all the portraits with a full moon in the background.

But of course, Husain's first muse was Madhuri Dixit.

The artist fell in love with her when he watched Hum Aapke Hain Koun...! He loved her in it so much that he watched the film 73 times.

He went on to sketch her, and even cast her in his directorial debut Gaja Gamini.

When Madhuri made her comeback in 2007's Aaja Nachley, Husain booked the entire Lamcy Cinema in Dubai for a show.
