Sridevi one of the best Indian film stars. She was a diva, a dancing queen, and as well an excellent comedian. An actress who set the box office on fire in a male-dominated Bollywood. Moreover, she was brilliant at her work in films across five languages, and churn out hits like Himmatwala, Chaalbaaz, Moondram Pirai, Nagina, Kshana Kshanam, Mr. India, Sadma, Chandni or Lamhe?
All this did not come easily for her. An outsider in Bollywood, she was mocked for her poor accent and dubbed ‘Ms. Thunder Thighs’. Sridevi had to reinvent herself many a time. Whether it was by making the white salwar kameez sexy or by playing double roles with flair. Then, after she’d left it all to be a doting wife and mother. She made a brilliant comeback with a memorable role in English Vinglish.
