with Rishi Kapoor

Throughout the 1980s and early '90s, Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi did several Hindi films together. Both fine actors and superstars, they matched each others' steps and were perfect foils in half-a-dozen films.

Starting in 1986 with the box office smash Nagina (which was an unexpected and unprecedented hit), and culminating with Kaun Sacha Kaun Jhoota in 1997, (though undoubtedly, the best film the did together was Chandni in 1989), the two were awesome together: It may seem like they did several more but they didn't - they made such iconic box-office smashes that the memories linger.

Sridevi and Rishi Kapoor need to do a stellar drama together (or comedy!). We've entertained this notion of the Indo-fied version of Whose Afraid of Virginia Wolf? in our head for several years...  But then... we are full of lofty ideas!

Meanwhile, here's a recap of Sridevi and Rishi Kapoor on film:

1986 - Nagina
1989 - Chandni
1991 - Banjaran
1991 - Garajna (unreleased!)
1993 - Gurudev
1997 - Kaun Sacha, Kaun Jhoota
