Sridevi with Salman Khan

Pr-publicity shots for Chand Ka Tukda that Sridevi did with Salman Khan. Legend has it, after the super (and unexpected!) success of Sanam Bewafaa (1991), writer/producer/director Saawan Kumar Tak  immediately re-signed Salman Khan for his next film. He did a huge casting call for his leading lady but none fit the bill. Salman Khan requested the director to cast Sridevi. Though she was only 2 years older than him, she was over 100 films older than Khan! They did a test shoot and released the images to the media - the response was phenomenal and the unexpected pairing of superstar Sridevi and rising star Salman Khan occured. Tragcially, both the subsequent films the stars did were dreadful... but the duo sure did look good!

Black and white images of Sridevi on set

A life lived in technicolour, but these pics of Sridevi in Bollywood film sets are archival images in black and white. Don't do justice to the long legacy of India's iconic actress.

Sridevi off Screen

Just a collection of images of Sridevi off-screen.

Anil Kapoor remembers Sridevi

Jeetendra and Anil Kapoor spoke at length about Sridevi on their recent TV show appearances. Even they seem still in shock... sigh.
