Sari Clad Sridevi in Jaag Utha Insaan (1984)

Released on July 6, 1984, the remake of Telugu film Saptapadi (1981), also directed by K Vishwanath, was remade for the Bollywood belt with Sridevi, Mithun Chakraborthy and Rakesh Roshan. Sridevi acts and dances brilliantly in the intricate drama that sadly, despite its mere 2 crore budget, failed to set the box-office on fire. The […]

Launch of Kalaakar in 1983 with Kunal goswami

Son of Bollywood legend Manoj Kumar, Kunal Goswami tried his luck in Bollywood too – with a dream launch with the rising star of the time, a young Sridevi, back in 1983. Despite great songs and interesting story line, the film flopped. While the actor tried his luck again and again, Sridevi went on to […]

Throwback Thursday: at the English Vinglish Telugu Trailer Launch

A beaming, beatific, beautiful Sridevi at the Telugu trailer launch of English Vinglish, back in Sept 2012. Confident and comfortable, it wasn’t the shy and reticent Sridevi who took centerstage, but a legend returning to fine form, back on screen. Not only did Sridevi satisfy every fan’s expectation of a comeback film, but surpassed it […]

The Myth of Sridevi's name!

As many Sridevi fans know, the biggest goof online is Sridevi’s name. She was NOT born “Sridevi Amma Iyenger”. She was born Sreedevi Aiyappan. Pre marriage, she used to sign/autograph simply as A. Sreedevi (surname initial first, name as suffix). Post marriage, she signs it as Sreedevi Kapoor. There is no greater mystery to her […]

Famous Fan: Sonakshi Singha

Although Sridevi was conspicuously absent from IIFA 2016 in Madrid this year, Sonakshi Singha went on to perform a tribute to Sridevi (and from what we’ve heard so far, done a splendid job). Not the first time young Sonakshi has spoken as a true fan of the actress. She attended English Vinglish premiere and was […]

“I was a very shy and lonely child” – Sridevi

From her crush on Sylvester Stallone to actresses who make her feel small, Sridevi revealed it all to MONI, in Cine Blitz, August 1985. The No.1 tag embarrasses her. “Achieving this position is not difficult. I was a superstar after just one hit, Himmatwala. It’s maintaining this position that keeps me tense all the time.” […]

with Jeetendra in Himmatwala (1993)

HIMMATWALA (1983) She was a rough diamond and this film was replete with rough edges. But still, this Madras family drama cum taming of the shrew was a commercial blockbuster which put Sridevi firmly on the map. Flaring nostrils and with a whip in hand, the swim-suited Thunder Thighs drew massive sighs from the masses. […]
