Beloved Bollywood actress Sridevi dead at 54

Bollywood actress Sridevi passed away at age 54 due to cardiac arrest Sridevi passes away: Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan reminisce about the actress, her prodigious talent

"She passed away in the hotel itself".

Post that, Sridevi's mortal remains will be brought back to Mumbai in late hours of Sunday and last rites are expected to take place at Pawan Hans crematorium at Juhu, Mumbai at 11 AM on Monday. "But for me, it was something I had done many times before".

This is known that Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her Bollywood with Shashank Khaitan's film Dhadak but just before the release of this film, Janhvi lost her mother. They were with the entire Kapoor family in UAE to attend the wedding ceremony of Mohit Marwah.

Sree Amma Yanger Ayyappan who adopted the screen name Sridevi first faced the camera as a child artiste in Moondru Mudichu in 1976. Far from the traditional coy Bollywood heroines, Sridevi shaped a new generation of female leads with attitude and ambition of their own.

She starred in some of the Indian movie industry's biggest hits through the 1970s and 1980s. Sridevi quit films in 1997 at the peak of her career because she had given birth to Jhanvi and wanted to raise her without any work schedule pressure. The government of India awarded her Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour, in 2013.

Lauren Cohan (Maggie) has signed up to star in a new ABC drama, so could be forced to leave ahead of season nine. Chandler explained he had to retrain how to shoot and aim using his left hand, but that he got "lazy with it".


Over five decades, she featured in nearly 300 films, including classics Mr India, Chandni, ChaalBaaz and Sadma.

Sridevi's 1981 Tamil film, Meendum Kokila, had already got her plenty of accolades.

However, this message was sent across to her onscreen daughter Sajal Ali.

"Sridevi didn't act for 15 years and when she returned with "English Vinglish" many felt she looked just as wonderful as she had in her youth", Rachel Dwyer, a professor in Indian cinema at SOAS, University of London, told Al Jazeera. Their fierce competition was one of the worst kept secrets ever. From Kamal Haasan to Rajinikanth to Anil Kapoor, the actress managed to shine bright with her stellar performances. The role then went to Madhuri Dixit who became a superstar overnight after the film's success.

In 1993, when Hollywood director Steven Spielberg was casting for Jurassic Park, he had approached Sridevi for a role in the film, but she turned it down as she felt that the role was not meaty enough. "You see what went wrong and try not to do the same mistake", she had said.
