The Aaja Nachle star was in London yesterday (March 7) for the unveiling of her waxwork at Madame Tussauds.
Dixit told Digital Spy why she was pleased to see Indian cinema represented at the world famous waxworks museum, saying: "I think it's very important because there are Indians all over the world and the world has become such a small place.
"I think its very, very important to be represented, especially the Indian film industry because it's so huge. There are so many films being made in India and it's great that it is being recognised."
Dixit, who attended the event with her family, credited her fans with making it happen, adding: "I'm very proud that [the waxwork is] here, and I think my fans are going to be very happy because they are the ones who made it happen, so I have to thank them."
Her waxwork was commissioned following numerous letters from fans.
Dixit is the sixth Bollywood celebrity to be honoured by Madame Tussauds London and the second actress following Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who entered the attraction back in 2004.
She said that coming face-to-face with her wax image was "very surreal... it feels like an out-of-body experience".
Dixit added: "I was very excited, honoured and humbled. I think this is the place you get recognised when you've worked all your life."
The world-famous attraction has worked closely with the Indian film industry over the last decade and the Bollywood area is one of its most popular.
In addition to waxworks of Dixit and Rai Bachchan, the exhibit also features models of Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.
