RIP Sridevi: The Rare Legend. The Last Empress


RIP Sridevi

She was born to act. Natural acting is her genre, somewhat rare these days. She left millions of viewers crying into sheets of paper with her brilliant and meaty performances ever since she started acting. She made us giggle like a child with her comedy roles. Her dancing eyes and feet didn’t need any training from the fleet of accomplished choreographers. Such was her unmistakable foot-tapping. She started her career at the age of 4 in the 1967 Tamil film Thunaivan when it is time to play with the Barbie dolls. Only she knew when to make that stupid grin, or give that mesmerising loving look. She embraced marriage and motherhood when she was at the top of her game. She has delivered some knockout performances year after year, from her childhood days till this very minute as you read this piece. She put up such an entertaining show in such a short span of time that it is hard to believe Shree Amma Yanger Ayappan known as Sridevi is no more with us.

All of 54, Sridevi left us to tears with her shocking passing away from a cardiac arrest in Dubai on February 24, 2018. She had gone to attend a family wedding, but fate played it all wrong. Is she the Indian version of Audrey Hepburn or Meryl Streep? You decide. But the #Sadma we as movie fans got is hard to forget and overcome too. Her ‘Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Choodiyan’ to ‘Kaate Nahi Katate Ye Din Ye Raat’, ‘Morni Baaga Ma Bole Aadhi Raat Ma’ to ‘Chandni O Mein Chandni’ and iconic songs will keep resonating in our ears for many more years to come. That was the sweet charm of Sridevi movies.

Take a look at Sridevi last video before she breathed her last.

Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival, tweeted, “Shocked to hear of the passing of India’s legendary Sridevi. Honoured to have been in her presence in 2012 when she visited Toronto for English Vinglish. She made countless millions fall in love with her characters “

Sridevi Died

Actor Par Excellence

Versatility thy name is Sridevi!

She virtually ruled the acting horizon in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Don’t know how many of you will agree with me – but Sridevi can very much be taken as the female version of the famous, charming and seasoned Hindi film stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna and many more. So well-deserved was her recognition that Sridevi was called India’s first female superstar. YES!

Now don’t be under the impression that Sridevi acted only in Hindi films. She was equally a part of Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada films. In fact, she has acted in over 300 films and has won 5 Best Actress awards from Filmfare.

Let’s decode Sridevi movies:
