  • 'Sadma lullaby haunts me now,' grieves Kamal Haasan as Sridevi leaves millions mourning

North and South Indian superstars may not have much in common, but when it comes to the legendary Sridevi, everyone from Kamal Haasan to Jeetendra, Rajinkanth to Rishi Kapoor, echo the same sentiments. Still she became a successful actor in Hindi too. Until then, Sridevi had been playing glamorous roles and her transformation in Moondram Pirai was a revelation. What a pity that after her demise, we are discussing through media - how and why she died. This was one of her hits with the maverick director. Superstar Rajini had worked with the lovely actress in many movies including "Moonru Mudichu" and both shared a good friendship with her. She was affectionately called Baby Sridevi even in her teens. "She was an extraordinary talent", said the director cum actor. Films like Himmatwala, Mawali and Tohfa made her immensely popular among the masses. The child worked hard and walked step by step. In one of Mr India's famous sequences, Seema (Sridevi) has infiltrated the villain's den but, in her quest for disguise, finds herself as the lead performer in the evening's entertainment. Our paths diverted when she became a superstar in Hindi.

Rajini said "everyone knows how good an actor she was".

The State Government's Award for Best Actress was a consolation as were the plaudits that came her way. She played my sister, and daughter in several films.

"We should have been talking today about a great game and three points", shrugged Benitez. At the end there, I thought we were going to win the game.

Sridevi and Haasan in Tamil movie Varumayin Niram Sivappu. I think it is a great lullaby for the talented, lovely Sridevi. With that foundation, an array of author backed roles, she was destined to great heights, but she discovered a new challenge. The kind of dedication she had matched mine. Whether fondly calling her pet dog Subramani or slightly touching Kamal Haasan's hands with the tip of her tongue in the song "Kannay Kalaimaane" or throwing a food packet to Kamal Haasan after she regained her memory in the last scene, she slipped into the skin of the character easily. When they accidentally switch places, it's the latter's dealing with the abusive family and her romance with a now-stunned suitor (Sunny Deol) that provide the film with it's winning moments.

He also paid his deepest condolences to the family. Considering the fact that she had made a comeback to films, the industry and her legion of fans will certainly miss her.
