We cannot wait for the telecast of Soundaryalahari, where Sridevi appears with her former directors and producers. At ease with the language, Sridevi appears more animated, relaxed and ready to chat uninhibited. Looking more stunning than ever, even the ads for the show have us excited for the highly anticipated telecast of the TV chat show.

Two clips have aired so far here and here.

See earlier post on the TV show here.

with Daniel Bauer

Aussie make-up artist Daniel Bauer is currently the biggest name in the biz - well, he certainly works with the biggest names... from Aishwarya Rai and Deepika Padukone to the original queen of B'wood; Sridevi.

Here's a fun candid shot from his instagram account. Sridevi looks adorable!

Getting Aamir Khan and Sridevi together...

"...When I became the Editor of MOVIE magazine, I told Rakesh that I would like to bring Aamir Khan and Sridevi together for my first cover. He drove with me to both the stars and we made what seemed like impossible, possible. We shot some beautiful Sridevi and Dimple covers together and we worked on some amazing shoots for our annual issues, including one where we got director’s to shoot their favourite muses – Mukul Anand shot Sridevi, Dharmesh shot Karisma etc..."

Dinesh Raheja 

NOTE: We've 'borrowed'... oh all right, downright pilfered from Facebook, this Sri related post. One of our favourite magazine editors/writers Dinesh Raheja (even though he's more of a Madhuri Dixit fan!)  did quite a few Q&As with Sridevi and had her on the cover often (but not often enough...) of his film magz.

Raheja was one of the handful of scribes who elevated film journalism from the sophomoric (and often moronic) writing that people often found in film magz in the 1980s and early 1990s. With the death of MOVIE mag (the latest incarnation from UK is horrendous) and 'G' magazine (by the fabulous Bhawana Somaaya), both editors tried to amp up celebrity coverage beyond the 'Is he/she your boyfriend/girlfriend' tabloid sensationalism. They were hence a favourite of stars exhausted by the general stupidity of the half-wit reporters who asked inane questions.

We used to follow Raheja on rediff and glad to know he's still writing about films from Mumbai through various channels. You can't keep a good man down.

RIP Oscar de la Renta

Legendary American fashion designer Oscar de la Renta passed away on October 20, 2014. The king of gowns, couture and glamor  dressed Hollywood legends, first ladies, royalty and fashion icons the world over. He was no stranger to Bollywood's leading ladies either, including of course, Sridevi, first lady of Indian cinema.

Seen here in two outfits by de la Renta, Sridevi stunned at IIFA and at events in Mumbai looking effortlessly elegant; the enduring legacy of the designer.
