Today is the 55th anniversary of the late Sridevi’s birthday and we miss her en-dearly. Here’s why there was and will be only one Sridevi…
We lost the most brightest star of B-Town a few months back and it was really a sad & hard time for all those who loved the original Chandni & the undisputed Queen of the industry, Sridevi who ruled the silver screen for decades. Her family members, colleagues from the industry and all her fans were in the state of utter shock when the sad news of her sudden demise broke the internet. Almost every actress, who dreams to become a leading actress one day has danced to her songs and has been a fan-girl of the iconic actress without any doubts. Her performances over the years have carved out an indelible impact on the audience where she has proved again & again that there can be only like her and helped in changing the image of a stereotypical Bollywood heroine. The actress who was one of the most loved stars of Indian cinema is no more but her legacy and her extraordinary body of work will always be immortal & something to remember always without trying hard.
An actress who lighted up the silver screen every time she did a film will be remembered & missed always and will always be relevant. Let’s decode why there can be only one Hawa Hawai and her legacy will be impossible to carry forward…
Power-pack Performer : Sridevi masters the art of giving stellar performances which end on becoming groundbreaking roles & characters every single time, we wonder how?! With iconic & memorable performances in movies like Sadma, ChaalBaaz, Mr. India, Lamhe, Nagin, English, Mom etc, she has inspired generations & millions. Everyone who was growing up in 80’s & 90’s was star struck from her and loved the way she acted and her reign as the best actress continued through decades. Her countless awards say a lot in themselves. The diversified roles which she did easily can sum up in drafting a guidebook for any upcoming actress who wants to know what it takes to reach the top. Her comic performances, acts filled with sensuality and genius acting chops make her what she is. She was able to, at once, be both funny and sexy & powerful and compassionate.
Queen Of Dance & Expressions : Many came, tried and left. She came and conquered! No one has been able to dance and express how Sridevi used to do! Those twinkling eyes, the scintillating smile and the effortless dancing, she had got it all in her filled to the brim. Just with her expressions, she was able to express a plethora of emotions like a boss! Only if the new age heroines can learn even 1 percent of what she did, they can be superstars of tomorrow.
Best Comebacks : She ruled the silver screen for years before getting settled after getting married followed by giving birth to two beautiful girls. Everyone was missing her onscreen and pleaded to make a comeback but only in vain. She said to big movies like Mohabbatein, Baghban etc and waited for the right script to make a comeback. And then came English Vinglish in which everyone’s sweetheart was back and how! She drove the movie single handedly and it was one of the most successful movies of that year. Soon, it was touted at the most impacting and successful comeback for any Indian heroine. She proved that class is permanent and she still has it in her. She repeated the same story with Mom.
Those eyes, that smile, that unmatched grace & dignity can never be forgotten. Rest in peace Sri ji and thank you for the magic and the beautiful memories. Never there will be anyone like you. You are and will always be the brightest star!
