The No:1 Actresses of ALL time; Rekha, Hema Malini and Sridevi. All South Indian Divas, legendary beauties, great dancers and stupendous actresses. What a rare and great moment.
Khalid Mohamed (Editor, Screenwriter): "Sridevi is an all rounder, she is unarguably the best No.1 actress we've ever known. Hema Malini & Rekha just didn't have the same snap and crackle, the electricity. Mumtaz was pretty, perky, yes but Sridevi's zoomed league ahead. Sridevi can dance, act , she has charisma, oomph, energy. No actress can combine all these elements. Not surprisingly she doesn't have a competitor of equal merit. Put them on the screen with her and they'll look like her hand maidens."
Balakrishna Shroff (Distributor): "Sridevi's box office potential is greater than Hema or Rekha's ever was. Hema and Rekha thrived at a time when there was no video. Next to Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi is the only one who can guarantee definite returns over a period of time. Earlier heroines were popular but they never were a craze like Sridevi is. Her fan following matches that of a hero and she can overshadow any hero as she did in Mr India. Her contribution to the success of Chandni is 90 per cent."
