Sridevi in Roop Ki Rani...

Hiding behind the star, Chandni herself... Sridevi from the comedic title song of Roop Ki Rani...

Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi in Chandni

A moment to appreciate the cinematography in Chandni - well, to be fair, in every Yash Chopra film. He always had such stellar aesthetics. Even in this dramatic pre-climactic scene, when Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi confront each other after the traumatic breakup, look how gorgeously Chopra framed his movie. There are several stills in this movie or be it in Lamhe (and particularly in Silsila), where every frame looks like art. To top it all, the stellar performances of the leads Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi.

Mickey Contractor with Sridevi

".....Make-up artist Mickey Contractor says it was great working with her [Sridevi] and that she was always considerate and accommodating. “She would usually do her own make-up and she was good at it, but with me, she would allow me to do whatever I wanted. Moreover, she used to be curious and would ask about the colours I used,” he says......"

The day after news broke Sridevi had died, Mickey Contractor posted:


Remembering Sridevi...

Sridevi over the years... We were feeling a bit 'be-rang' today hence the series of BW images... Gorgeous Sri

Sriputri... Jhanvi Kapoor. Sridevi forever

So it was brought to our attention that we should morph this and (the FB page) to a Janhvi Kapoor fan site... Well, as much as we like the kid - we have been there throughout young Janhvi's journey from her baby-on-Stardust-cover days till date - we will always be the ultimate Sridevi fan site. At its inception, the Sridevi fan blog (yahoo group, twitter, tumblr, Facebook page) was created for Sridevi fans to connect while she took a hiatus and we wanted to have a site that funnels every grand portrait and picture of Sridevi into one space. Every interview, newsbyte, quote... We will continue to do so... Sridevi's just taken a break from her mortal coil but her legend will live on forever. There will never be another Sridevi in our lifetime. And this site will always and forever be dedicated to her.
