The international appeal of a Bollywood Icon: Sridevi fans are all around the globe


Stats and figures don't lie - Sridevi's appeal is far beyond borders. 

If over 800 million views of a single song of Sridevi is trending in 2021 - then you know the image of Sridevi is greater globally than it is just in India.

Sridev in Yash Chopra's Chandni or Lame? Which performance do you prefer?


Sridev in Yash Chopra's Chandni or Lame? Which performance do you prefer?

If we go by audience reaction - and gage that by the box-office collection and the repeat audience chart - then, statistically, most people preferred Sridevi's performance in Chandni. However, when you look at what the critics of their time said about Sridevi's polished, refined performance in Lamhe, and the number of awards Sridevi won for it, then Sridevi as Pallavi/Pooja is the chosen performance. A favourite of an erudite circle.... 

Stunning Sridevi who helped revive the Yash Raj banner.

Q: How was it working with Karan Johar for the first time in Agneepath?


Sanjay Dutt: 
He's [Karan Johar] is exactly like his father [Yash Johar]. Karan's large-heartedness, his passion to make films and the way he wants everything perfect or the cast and crew from the food to the accommodation's reminds me of his dad. It felt like I was working in Gumraah again. One thing Karan didn't do was make tea like his dad used to do. Every morning Yash uncle would make tea for Sridevi, me and the rest of us and come to our rooms with it."

Sridevi and Shilpa Shetty

 

Sridevi and Shilpa Shetty. 

This week, after shocking allegations made by Mumbai police on the nefarious activities of Raj Kundra, the Shettys have been trending online. 

Shilpa Shetty in particular has been trending on social media with a lot of memes, some in poor taste. 

Why do we - as a society, esp desi society - always blame the woman for the actions of a man?! 

Do you honestly think, the mother-of-two had any idea what Kundra was up to? 

Team Shilpa alllll the way. Stay strong Shilps!
