      Sridevi Birth Anniversary Special: Her Best Films Which Are A Must Watch For Every Cinephile

      |

      She was the first female superstar of Bollywood who reigned the silver screen for several decades. In a male-dominated film industry, there were films written especially keeping her in mind. The audience skipped a heartbeat everytime she appeared on the screen. We are talking about the legendary actress Sridevi!

      She was all of six when she made her acting debut as a child artist in Thunaivan. After taking the South Film Industry by storm, Sridevi forayed into Bollywood with Bharathiraja's Solva Savan. In the next few decades, she had a trailblazing career in Hindi cinema with numerous powerful performances. At times, her acts even eclipsed her leading heroes in films.

      With a mysterious twinkle in her eyes and her enigmatic screen presence, the acting legend had ruled the industry for several decades before passing away in 2018.

      Had Sridevi been alive, she would have turned 59 today (August 13, 2022). On her birth anniversary, we revisit some of her finest performances on the celluloid.

      Sridevi's woman-child act in Balu Mahendra's Sadma is considered to be one of her finest performances on screen. The role was a difficult tightrope to walk but the actress nailed every bit of it and left us teary-eyed in the climax, which is touted to be one of the most heartbreaking cinematic moments. She along with another acting legend Kamal Haasan gave us plenty of reasons to 'gale laga le' them.

      Nagina

      At a time when the box office was dominated by male heroes, Sridevi's female-centric film Nagina set the cash registers ringing. As an ichhadhari (shapeshifting) serpent, the actress catapulted to dizzying peak of stardom with this film. The hysteria created by her iconic snake dance on the song 'Main Teri Dushman' back then, proved that she was indeed a 'star'- one of her kind.
