  • Sridevi

Sridevi had vanished from the Bollywood arena way back in the late '90s putting her family as her first priority. But with time, everything withered away but her! Refreshing and rejuvenating still, like a bottle of old wine, Sridevi has managed to remain timeless, not just in her looks but in her persona.

The diva who rocked the '90s with her screen presence celebrates her Birthday today and we bring you 6 of her performances that we cant have enough of!

Mr. India:

The film might have been about Anil Kapoor and his invisible gadget, but no one can deny that Sridevi upped the oomph in the film. Without her, Mr. India would not have ever been the same! And who can forget the 'Kaate nahi katte' number from the film? It still stands as an epitome of sensuous seduction. 


A film, that tugs at the heart and is one of the most poignant films Bollywood has ever witnessed. From emotional scenes to the breathtaking heartbreak at the end, Sadma had all of us in tears and how!


Sridevi seemed to have mastered the art of melodrama because with Lamhe, she created magic all over. That innocent coy as the daughter and the staunch poise as the mother, Sridevi marveled in this sensitive drama


While most of her contemporaries shied away from doing double roles, she aced it! From the naughty and spunky Manju to the docile and vulnerable Manju, Sridevi nailed two different wavelengths of the spectrum with pitch-perfect conviction. 


Undoubtedly one of her best performances, Chandni literally zoomed her into the top league of stars. No wonder, being a Yash Chopra heroine and wearing that flowing chiffon sari made heads swoon over her! 

English Vinglish:

One of the best comeback films ever, Sridevi's effortless screen presence and aura helped the film rake in huge numbers and touch hearts worldwide. Playing a regular ordinary Marathi woman who doesn't know English and embarks on a journey to the United States on her own, Sridevi showed all her contemporaries how a comeback is actually done! Poised and dignified, Sridevi refused to resort to silly tomfoolery and made Shashi's story her own!
