Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri Dixit presenting the Best Actress award to Sridevi for Kshana Kshanam, one of the very few instances where the two leading ladies shared a dais.

Sridevi, "I'm very excited when I win an award for a Telegu or Tamil film. Kshana Kshanam was in my mother tongue Telugu, and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Despite my commitments in Bombay I like doing an occasional film in South. I choose my assignments on the basis of the banner and the director. That automatically ensures that I will have a good role in the film.

I avoid films that do not give importance to my characterisation. Double roles are my favourite, as they allow me to add various shades to the dual-performance. I've worked with all top hereos in the South like Chiranjeevi, Najgarjuna, and Venkatesh (my co-star in Kshana Kshanam). But it's only in Bombay that there's much hue and cry when I sign a film with Salman Khan or Rahul Roy.

This is my fourth Filmfare award after the Tamil film Meendum Kokila in 81, Chaalbaaz in 89 and Lamhe in 91."
-- Sridevi speaks to Filmfare just after winning an award in 1993.
