Sridevi



Sridevi on the set.

Sari Clad Sridevi in Jaag Utha Insaan (1984)



Released on July 6, 1984, the remake of Telugu film Saptapadi (1981), also directed by K Vishwanath, was remade for the Bollywood belt with Sridevi, Mithun Chakraborthy and Rakesh Roshan.

Sridevi acts and dances brilliantly in the intricate drama that sadly, despite its mere 2 crore budget, failed to set the box-office on fire. The film  released in the summer where mindless pot-boilers were all the rage (which Sri later went on to corner). Upon re-viewing on television, many have liked the intense drama. Watch out for the underrated taandav Sridevi does in the film...

Launch of Kalaakar in 1983 with Kunal goswami



Son of Bollywood legend Manoj Kumar, Kunal Goswami tried his luck in Bollywood too - with a dream launch with the rising star of the time, a young Sridevi, back in 1983. Despite great songs and interesting story line, the film flopped. While the actor tried his luck again and again, Sridevi went on to superstardom. Here the young pair ate at the launch of Kalaakar.
