Sridevi's death has been a sheer shock to the entire world. Most of us really went numb when the news surfaced on the internet. She was smart, magnanimous, looked too young for her age and above all this veteran actress gave us many roles and films that we can watch and remember all our lives.
Sridevi's career started at the mere age of four and she is probably the last actress of her times to have literally grown up on the screen from four to fifty-four. Shining, stunning and impossible to ignore, our hawa-hawai added a lot to the Indian cinema, let us all remember her iconic roles!
The versatile actress was introduced to stardom with this film. Famous song Naino mein sapna sapno mein sajna was shot for this film. The potboiler was a major breakthrough for her career and people appreciated her work.
This movie was Sridevi's response to those who claimed that the actress was not meant for acting. Sridevi's career instantly hopped with such films where she showcased her acting skills and left the world speechless.
Main teri dushman, dushman tu mera...
Sridevi tried a fierce role in this film where she acted like a naagin. Her avatar went superhit and various remakes of this film then flowed in. Sridevi as icchadhari naagin enchanted every viewer.
With utter gorgeousness and grace, Sridevi again made her fans applaud and go crazy when she did this film. She had the perfect comic timing in this and apart from all of this, her song kaate nahin kat te with Anil Kapoor again became a sensation.
This song beautifully captured her charismatic personality, her eyes that spoke a thousand words and of course how can we ignore her moves. In no time, Hawa hawai became a national sensation and again various remakes were made so that the younger audience can also relate to it.
Sridevi's beauty and shyness came out with this film. Famous song mere haathon mein was a part of this film. The reason why this one is special is that finally Sridevi became a Yash Chopra heroine with this film and wooed her fans opposite Rishi Kapoor.
For the first time, the actress played a double role and it was in this film. Again, one more iconic track naa jaane kahan se aayi hai made people dance to its tunes and that song was a part of this film. Sridevi was that one actress who could portray an entire essence with just a song.
Yash Chopra got Sridevi and her magic back on the screen with this film and this time it was with a bold character. Famous tracks like morni baga maa and kabhi main kahoon were a part of this film.
This film was a remake of a Kannada film but it is considered as one of the huge successes of her career. Her role as Sheetal was accepted and appreciated widely.
This film had Sridevi and Shah Rukh Khan together on the big screen. It is said that the film was inspired by Sholay. Sridevi played the role of SRK's wife in the film who fights and avenges her husband's death.
Judaai was a cult drama film which showed the nakhrebaaz side of the actress. The film showed Sridevi as a money-minded woman which she was not in real life. Her character was completely opposite of how she was in reality but she portrayed it effortlessly.
She made an amazing comeback with this film and left all her fans amazed.
I wish, she could make a comeback in real life as well.
May her soul rest in peace.
The world will miss you, Sridevi!
