Even as far back as the early 2000s, there were mumblings and rumblings about Sridevi's come-back. It took 14 years before it finally happened but some famous fans speak of the magic of Sri including Anupam Kher, Amrish Puri (RIP), Raveena Tandon and Archana Puran Singh.
Answering the question, Should Sridevi make a comeback?
Raveena Tandon: "It would be great if Sridevi made a comeback. I don't know if there is a vacuum created by her going away, but one thing is for sure - nobody has been able to take her place. But if at all she does make a comeback, I could say that she should not do 16 year-old roles. She has proved herself and now is the time she can opt for author backed roles."
Archana Puran Singh: "Sri should definitely come back. Marriage should never be a deterrent. She's looking her best these days and I think post marriage and motherhood, her acting will have another dimension. When the Number One leaves, there is a void, and this void is felt not by the aspiring Number Twos, but by her fans!"
Anupam Kher: "One hundred per cent, she should come back! I think the industry still misses her and she would be welcomed back with a lot of warmth. She hasn't personally told me she was quitting, so I presume that after marriage and the baby, she will resume working. I am sure she will make a comeback some day."
Amrish Puri: "Sridevi should definitely come back to films. She is talented, and will continue to make a contribution to cinema. There has been a void since she left. Of course, now she will have a look of maturity... Whatever the capacity though, she should come back!"
