Mr India (1987)

Shekhar Kapoor, "I never miss a Sridevi film. I've seen most of her Tamil and Telugu films. I was very impressed by her performance in Moondram Pirai. She was brilliant. I'd like to make an intense love story with Sridevi and Amitabh. As an actress she's remarkable. By far the most complete performer we ever had. You may call her an extension of Geeta Bali. She has surpassed Vyjaanthimala and Mumtaz. She has the passion of Meena Kumari and Nargis and the vulnerable charm of Madhubala. All she needs is to do a film like Mughal E Azam.
-- Filmfare, Aug, 1990

When Sridevi dances she performs as an actress and not only as a dancer. Her face is so lovely as her body then. Sometimes this is a problem and would also put me in two minds. You see, her face is very expressive and its architecture rapidly changes. This is an asset but changes the viewers focus from her body to her face. But that is also the sign of a great performer. Undoubtedly, she is the biggest film star now.
