Sridevi Is More Beautiful Than Ever on New Filmfare Cover
Mention the word "comeback" and most people immediately think of Aishwarya Rai. Details of her return to films have been debated since she gave birth to her daughter last November, even though she has yet to sign a film. But there's another star aiming to become Bollywood's comeback queen: Sridevi.
Sridevi is quite possibly the most iconic actress of the 80s and early 90s. Her bubbly personality and phenomenal dance skills (which, remarkably, were self-taught) made her a favorite not just in the southern industries (her mother tongue is Tamil and she began her career first in Tamil films before branching out into the Telugu industry) but also catapulted her to super stardom in the Hindi film industry (Bollywood).
She left films in 1997 in favor of marriage and has since raised two daughters. While she's made a few appearances here and there (including a television stint), she hasn't done a film since her retirement. But that's all about to change: Last year she announced that she had signed her first film in fourteen years, and that film, English Vinglish, hits theaters next month. It's an incredibly exciting occasion for the entire industry, which has welcomed her back with open arms.
Filmfare magazine has marked the occasion by featuring her on their latest cover (accompanied by one of her first interviews for the magazine in over a decade). Age has changed her a bit, but she's still as gorgeous as ever, dressed in a revealing lavender gown and flashing a smile familiar to fans around the world. Filmfare labels Sridevi a "yummy mummy, diva, and actor extraordinaire" and it's hard to disagree!
Here's wishing the very best for English Vinglish and its beautiful star!

Is Sridevi all set to give young babes from B-town a run for their money?
We spotted the English Vinglish actor on the cover of a film magazine and her stunning frame took us by surprise. Judging by this picture, we are confident that the veteran star is all set for her sparkling comeback
Director R Balki believes that she’s India’s only female superstar and we could not agree more with the Paa director. Here’s Sridevi, adorning the cover of Filmfare magazine (August 2012 issue), only to give our young Bollywood babes a run for their hard-earned money. We see Sri – the yummy mummy, the actor extraordinaire and the diva that she still is – posing effortlessly for the lens. Her lean yet toned body, the elegant outfit and the million dollar smile enhance her undeniable, ageless charm. You just can’t miss the high gloss and filmi opulence oozing through in this cover. A big thumbs up for Sri’s comeback and to this cover shot.
Then we found Katrina Kaif on the same magazine’s Hindi issue and we were not impressed by the humdrum cover. Though Kat does make great cover material any time, this time around she managed to draw big yawns from us with what can be called a thanda image.
And then we saw Nargis Fakhri’s cover appearance on Marie Claire. The Rockstar fame babe is known for her magical presence and her classy look, but this cover shot does not justify the famous fabulous-ness of Fakhri. The ‘wow’ factor is seriously missing!
Wethinks this month, cover-wise, belongs to the one and only Sridevi! Don’t you agree?
Don't speak: Sridevi leaves us speechless on Filmfare cover
Sridevi might be having a little trouble minding her language in comeback film English Vinglish, but her sensational Filmfare cover has left everyone tongue tied.
The Chaalbaaz actress looks chic on the magazine's August issue in a grey Shahab Durazi dress.
Sridevi, who took a sabbatical from movies after her wedding and the birth of her daughters, is also going to the Toronto Film Festival where her movie is going to be screened. We can't wait to watch Sridevi on the big screen.
Gorgeous Sridevi on Filmfare – August 2012
The gorgeous Sridevi is on the cover of Filmfare Magazine for it’s August issue. The diva who is set to make her Bollywood comeback this year with English Vinglish looks like a million bucks with that beautiful smile! Sridevi plays Sashi in English Vinglish, a housewife who struggles with the English language. The movie will releases on 21st September.
Sridevi on Filmfare
A favorite Bollywood icon back on celluloid but first, she’s back on the magazine covers and none too soon. It’s nice to see a non-starlet, non-filmy housewife on the cover for a change.
