Sridevi's sensuousness and beauty left many a man feeling misty. Rachit Gupta takes a look at the golden girl's dream performances.
Apart from being one of the most beautiful faces in Indian cinema, Sridevi was synonymous with one important quality that makes actors stars. She danced like a dream. Such were her moves that people in theatres, the male gender to be specific, used to swoon over her. But that was just a part of this fantastic actor's career. Her unprecedented popularity in Tamil and Telugu cinema earned her a place in Hindi films and her on-screen energy and beauty took her to the top.
Whether she did critically lauded roles or run-of-the-mill potboilers, the audience lapped it up. Proof was her cameo presence in Jaanbaaz where she made the song Har kisi ko nahin milta a memorable moment. Sridevi was also one of controversy's favourite children. Her rumoured relationship with Mithun Chakraborty, her constant rivalry with Jaya Prada and Madhuri Dixit and her sudden marriage to Boney Kapoor kept her in the headlines. Most of her early films, from the '80s were dubbed by other actresses, including Rekha. But that never stopped the fans from cheering for Sridevi. Her persona and charisma was and is beyond any cinema language. As she readies for her a comeback in Gauri Shinde's next, we go down memory lane.
WOW! Filmfare's done a fab feature on Sridevi. Please go and grab a copy (with Kareena Kapoor on the cover!) NOW!
