Evergreen Bollywood actress Sridevi is celebrating her 52nd birthday today. Beautiful and talented actress Sridevi has proved the phrase, ‘once an actor always an actor’ with her recently released movie English Vinglish. She started her career in acting at the tender age of 4 and later on acted as an adult in 1970’s. Today she is considered as the first female superstar of Indian cinema. Let’s have a look at different avatars donned by the stunning actress in her blockbuster movies over the years.
It is very common that you see actors overdoing their characters where they are supposed to play a child or a mentally unstable person, but our Diva undoubtedly excelled even in this role. Playing a lead opposite legendary Kamal Haasan is not a cake-walk, but Sridevi did it with great ease and aplomb and so Sadma is surely one of the best films of Sridevi.
Naagin is another fantastic women-centric movie where Sridevi was able to showcase her talent. Sridevi as the snake-women stung us with her powerful acting in this film. And it’s been more than two decades after the film got released but even today when we talk of snake dance the first thing that comes to our mind is Sridevi dancing on Main teri dushman.
An actress’s dream career is fulfilled only when she gets a chance to become a Yash Chopra heroine. But Sridevi not only got the chance to become a heroine in YRF’s Chandni, but was that shining star that brightened up the whole film. And how can we forget Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi romancing on the iconic song ‘Chandni o meri Chandni’.
4. Mr. India:
It’s not easy for a heroine to carry out comical roles convincingly, but when it comes to our beauty nothing is impossible. Sridevi absolutely nailed the character of Seema, the journalist. She tickled our funny bones with her Charlie Chaplin avatar and made us groove to the ‘Hawa Hawai’ number in Mr India. And yes not to forget Anil Kapoor and Sridevi’s steaming hot romance in ‘Kaate nahi katte hai yeh din yeh raat’.
5. English Vinglish:
When a superstar like Sridevi is making a comeback, you can’t expect anything short of an extraordinary film and needless to say the beautiful mommy didn’t disappoint us. With English Vinglish we were once again in love with Sridevi. The industry is in a stage where many new comers are ruling on top and so the yesteryear actresses who are making a comeback want to compete with this newbies by taking up young and glamorous roles. But Sridevi being the ultimate Queen took up the challenge and went for a role that was completely opposite of what her contemporaries did and came out with flying colors.
