Sridevi's bridal look in Watan ke Rakhwale:

Released a day after Sridevi's birthday on 14 August, 1987, Watan Ke Rakhwale was a runaway success at the box-office, the seventh highest-grossing movie of 1987.

It had the most talked about Bollywood pair in the 1980s, Sridevi and Mithun Chakraborthy. Of the four films they did together, three were blockbusters.

Oh that Genie in a bottle wig, the chunky accessories, the campy makeup... and yet, Sridevi looks like a doll. She really did look good in just about anything.

Sridevi on the cover of Cine Blitz, August 1986!

The cover tag stuns us:

The orange Sabyasachi was a bit... much (btw advertised as peach but.. it photographed orange), but Good lord Sridevi was positively glowing and looking gorgeous. 


Dozens of pictures in the archive here - esp those of Sridevi with Salman Khan.

Sridevi in Naan Adimai Illai: Fan art inspired by Sridevi's look




Released on 1 March 1986, Naan Adimai Illai was Sridevi's penultimate Tamil film. She returned to Tamil cinema 29 years later in 2015, in the (awful!) film Puli. 

Sridevi looked and acted well in this melodrama, but the average box-office instigated Sridevi to concentrate on her sky-rocketing Bollywood career. She constantly worked in Telugu films (better money, prominent roles) without taking a break - and those films often released across the southern region so she wasn't missed by her core fans.
