Honouring Sridevi on her first death anniversary...

It has been nearly a year and we still cannot come to terms with the loss of Sridevi...

In honour of her loving and enduring memory, instead of wasting money with pointless tributes, in the name of Sridevi, we are planning to raise funds and give it to a worthy charity.

As we've chartered the course of Sridevi's career and recorded all the events she graced and the charities she supported, we are split between giving the money to a cancer fund or a children's fund - both of which Sriji was involved with.

Suggestions for consideration, most welcome...

Ranveer SIngh with Sridevi

Shocked and saddened to hear about the untimely demise of one of Hindi cinema’s greatest superstars. I grew up on her movies. She will always be one of my favourite actors of all time. May her soul rest in peace. My deepest condolences to her family. RIP

Sridevi inspired fan art

I thin its the symmetry of her angelic face and just the national impact Sridevi had, the hold she had for an audience of over a billion for the past fifty years that inspires So much fan art dedicated to 'the' Sridevi. We have a rich archive of the best Sri fan art on the blog. check it out.

Sridevi: Child Star to Leading Lady to Superstar to Legend...

Unlike other child stars - be it in India or Hollywood - who transitioned from the cute-kid on screen phase to adulthood with often difficulty, controversy, public failings and falls, Sridevi segued into superstardom with utter ease. There is no moment or time when she faced a calamitous struggle and 'the hardest working actress' in India climbed the ladder of success without tripping even once. Child star, leading lady, superstar to legend, the iconic pan-Indian actress has a near-mythic biography as its hard to believe how much she did and how much she achieved in her 50 years in the industry.

Sridevi portrait by Rakesh Shreshta

An arty off beat shoot Sridevi did in the early 90s for MOVIE magazine, under the creative direction of one of India's finest photographers Rakesh Shreshta.  Without the bling and glossy makeup and minimalist look... it brings out the epic natural beauty of the Southern siren...  Click on the image - Sri looks so gorgeous.
