Drawing on film magazines, newspapers, trade journals, interviews, text-based analyses, publicity and promotional materials, and discourse analyses of print media and fan activity, the author analyzes the career of Hindi film star Madhuri Dixit, using an industrial approach that explores the role of mentors, collaborators, and industry personnel and interpersonal relations and contacts, along with other methods. She argues that Madhuri's star phenomenon should be considered in terms of a collaborative process with mentors and her choreographer, showing the work involved in producing her stardom. She discusses the relationships between new technology, music, marketing, and female stardom in terms of her career; her performances as a dancing star in films; and her transition from film star to transmedia celebrity.
