Sridevi on the sets of Laadla (1994)

Sridevi, "I refused the Tamil and Telugu version of Laadla because I thought it's a negative role, the audience will hate me. However, when they became big hits, I realised I had made a mistake. So when I was approached for the Hindi version (after Divya Bharati's tragic death), I accepted it, without hesitating.

I liked the character. She's not killing anyone, she's not a vamp. I am demanding too, I want everything to be perfect. Whether it's my house or my dress, I never compromise. But that's where my similarity with the Laadla character Sheetal Jaitley ends (laughs!)."

Second Take: Sridevi

Sumeet Vyas remembers Sridevi

Sumeet Vyas essayed the role of the cab driver Salman Khan in English Vinglish and got to work with 'the' Sridevi. Here's what he remembers of the legend;

You worked with Sridevi in English Vinglish.
The experience of working in English Vinglish changed my view of how to look at cinema and my career in it.
Before that, I wasn't really serious about this avenue.
The experience was so lovely that I realised this could be as much fun as theatre. Plus, you reach out to so many more people.
Working with Sridevi was a fantastic experience.
I think she is the chosen one among so many actors. It was a special experience working with her, I don't know how to put it in words.
