A look at Sridevi's films with Kamal, Rajini

A look at Sridevi's films with Kamal, Rajini

The actress, who had begun her acting career as a child artiste in Tamil film Thunaivan in 1969 will be seen last in Shah Rukh Khan starrer "Zero" this year.

Then, seeing her stunned reaction he spells it out for her, enunciating the noun this time for her to catch it. Sridevi tries hard to pronounce it correctly but those watching that scene and the film know she will not. She had a seemingly quiet and unassuming demeanour off screen, but in reel life she was a livewire, and unlike some stars of today, Sridevi let her on-screen performance, and not off-screen rants, do the talking. Both Rajini and Sridevi have come a long way now, but it's shocking that one of them ended the journey. "He is a good man and very talented", she said.

In fact, it was through the movies directed by IV Sasi that Sridevi became a much popular figure in Malayalam films. From her humble roots in Tamil Nadu's Sivakasi, she first expressed her talent on the silver screen when just four, and went on to create an impressive body of work in many languages. I found one of the daughters and mother cuddling in a corner and showing love to each other.

In a rare chatty moment, she recounted her experience on the sets of the film Moonru Mudichu, her first film as a heroine.

Actor Jagdish said: "Now it will only be memories and that will be there forever, because she has left an ever lasting impression of her acting skills". I was astounded by her climb and every step of it she worked for. Janhvi saw the movie when she was around six years old and she didn't talk to me for three days.

Though she was working in Bollywood since the late 1970s, it was only in mid-80s that her Hindi cinema career truly picked pace with Himmatwala - itself a Southern remake. Last month, when I met her, we hugged each other even though we are not emotional and I am grateful for that hug. I think that (is) favourite lullaby for this talented, lovely Sridevi. She will keenly listen to what's being said. A forgettable movie otherwise, most wouldn't even remember the male lead opposite Sridevi (it was Rishi Kapoor by the way) so powerful was her performance. I'm yet to come terms with the sudden death of Sridevi ji. Sridevi went on to marry the producer of the movie, Anil's brother, Boney Kapoor. Sridevi as a coy Iyengar maami was remarkable for its easy realism at a time when most portrayals of Brahmin women on screen tended to be crude caricatures. There are two Sridevi's; one before the camera and one behind it. Off camera, she would be normal and listen to all the instructions given to her. She didn't complete her school education and never once regretted it. That's how she acts. She's a born actor.
