Julie (1975)



Sridevi's first appearance in a Hindi film; as a child artist (age around 11 or 12), in Julie (1975). So cute!

Says Sridevi, "When I did my fist film as the heroine in the South, I also simultaneously acted in Julie. I was 11 years old then, in the film I was supposed to have a boyfriend and I didn’t even know the meaning of the word. I was so innocent then. I also remember my mother in a flying rage during the making of this film (laughing). You see I was playing an Anglo-Indian girl, and the director insisted that I cut my long hair in a bob only to look more realistic. My mother refused point blank. But one day when she wasn’t around, one of the artistes bullied me into sitting still and she quickly cut off all my tresses. My mother was absolutely livid when she later found out!"
