There’s no denying the fact that Sridevi ruled the silver screens during the ‘80s and the ‘90s with her evergreen beauty, that alluring smile, and that oh, so warm personality. The prolific actress, who made her Hindi film debut in Solva Sawan, has been pretty diverse with her body of work and the kind of roles she chose for herself, which eventually turned her into a superstar.
During her heyday, she was bold, and unafraid to experiment, which led her to winning at least 5 Filmfare Awards for the best actress category. Whether it was her absolute brilliance in Sadma, in which she played a girl who regresses to her childhood after an accident or her role in Lamhe, where she defied societal norms, Sridevi was an absolute delight to watch every time she appeared on-screen. In her last release, English Vinglish, the powerhouse performer managed to touch everyone’s heart with that poignant performance which makes her one of the most sought after actresses who is defying Bollywood conventions (taking on the bull, that is, the prevalent double standards for men and women when it comes to age, by the horns).
And so, with her latest film, Mom, which is all set to release on Friday, we thought we’d make a list of some of her hottest moments where the sensuous actress sizzled the screen. Prepare to be bedazzled, folks.
