Beta (Hindi: बेटा, Urdu: بیٹا, translation: Son) is a 1992 Hindi movie directed by Indra Kumar that featured the pairing of Madhuri Dixit with Anil Kapoor in lead roles. It was a remake of Sandalwood Movie Mallammana Pavada (1969), starring Rajkumar, B. Saroja Devi and Tamil film Enga Chinna Rasa (1987), directed by K. Bhagyaraj. Along with Beta, the film was remade to Telugu as Abbaigaru, again to Kannada as Annayya, starring Ravichandran and Madhubala. The film is perhaps best remembered for the hit song "Dhak Dhak Karne Laga", which earned Madhuri Dixit her nickname as the "Dhak-Dhak Girl" ("dhak-dhak" = heartbeat).
Beta won four Filmfare Awards including Best Actor (Kapoor), Best Actress (Dixit), Best Playback Singer (Anuradha Paudwal for "Dhak Dhak Karne Laga") and Best Supporting Actress (Aruna Irani). It was declared a blockbuster and was the highest grossing film of 1992.
