5 iconic roles of Sridevi

Me khwabon ki shehezadi, main hoon har dil pe chahyi” perfectly defines the late Sridevi’s film career. The Hawa Hawai girl ruled our hearts for a very long time and left us for her journey to the next world on this very day, last year. Sridevi, the epitome of beauty, grace, poise and elegance in Bollywood, had made her mark with her immense contribution to Indian Cinema since she was a child. The actress in true sense gave her life to films. Whether it was her sizzling moves in Mr.India or her role of an aspiring lady struggling hard to learn English in Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish, the B-town diva made us believe in the magical world she created each time and wowed us with her performances. Today, on the eve of her first death anniversary, let’s talk about some iconic roles that Sridevi had portrayed and will always remain in our hearts .

Nehalata (Sadma):


Talk about her acting caliber and the very first character that will always come to our collective minds is that of Nehalata from the beautiful film Sadma. Sridevi played an autistic lady in the film who regresses into a childlike behaviour after an accident and lands up into brothel to be saved by Kamal Haasan. The dynamic that both of them share and the heart breaking end is the highlight of film. If you are one who hasn’t seen Sadma as yet, then it’s better you do, because it is worth every minute.

Anju and Manju (ChaalBaaz)


Do you remember the song, Na Jane Kaha Se Aai Hain and Sridevi dancing on it wearing a raincoat? Well, that popular number is from ChaalBaaz. Those were the days when doing a film with double roles was considered to be a milestone in an actor’s career. In Chaalbaaz, she played the roles of Anju and Manju, two twin sisters who separated at birth. One grows up to be a shy, high valued girl whereas the other one is a complete badass. Sridevi shined in both the parts and claimed her place as the hero of the film.

Chandni (Chandni):


This was the time when films were majorly dominated by men, well, let’s just accept they still do. Sridevi in an as Chandni made us fall in love with her all over again. Twirling around singing and dancing with Rishi Kapoor on those snow clad mountains is a guilty Bollywood pleasure of many. Turning out to be one of the biggest hits of late Yash Chopra, Chandni was as love triangle that completely belonged to Sridevi courtesy her chirpy, loving portrayal as the female lead. She became a fashion icon with this film as well and her all the Chandi looks are still pretty famous.

Pallavi and Pooja (Lamhe)


Listed amongst the top 100 Bollywood romantic movies at many places, Lamhe added one more film with a double role to Sridevi’s kitty. This time she played a double role with a vast age gap. She played a girl growing up to look just like her mother. So basically she played both mother and daughter onscreen. Sridevi dancing on Morni Baga Ma dolled up in a traditional Rajasthani will always remain a visual delight. Her pairing with Anil Kapoor was a loved, making Lamhe worth watching though back then the story of the film was ahead of its time .

Shashi (English Vinglish):

Let’s just put it out this way, in director Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish, Sridevi voiced those number of ladies embarrassed each day because they lack in some counter. Shashi asking for not too much but some respect from her husband and kids was heartbreaking, but her journey in earning that respect gave thousand others motivation. Gauri’s slice of life film marked Sridevi’s come back on the big screen after a long time. And she made a point that no matter how long the break was, her craft was still intact and no one can ever replace her. We lost a legend last year. She will always be alive between us through her films.

Tara Sutaria has already garnered eyeballs after her debut in Student of The Year 2. But we have seen her before in Disney’s Suite Life of Karan and Kabir in her teens. She’s not just an actor but also a singer, and let’s not forget her fabulous sartorial choices along her SOTY 2 promotions.

We have seen Tara in one of designer Ritu Kumar’s latest campaigns, and that was one of her first collaborations. Today (May 18), she has bagged a major cosmetic brand endorsement with Bobbi Brown. Bobbi Brown came to India in early April and they’ve been giving hints about Tara being the face of Bobbi Brown by posting close-ups of Tara’s eyes and lips. It seems like the deal was on since a while, and now it’s official!

The announcement ceremony was held at the Bobbi Brown outlet at Inorbit Mall, Malad, in Mumbai at 5:30 p.m, where Tara was present for a meet-and-greet. She wore a satin suit-dress in beige with complimenting beige pumps and vibrant red lipstick to complete the look. She sent up the temperatures as always, and Bobbi Brown India finally has a Brand Ambassador!

Right from the first film in which the audiences saw Vicky Kaushal, they fell in love with the actor. Vicky started off his career with the role of a simple lover boy in Masaan, and there was no stopping for him after that. He essayed several roles and outdid himself with each offering. Currently, he is one of the most bankable names in the industry, and people know that if he is on the big screen, they are in for an entertaining watch. Today (May 16) as the Masaan actor celebrates his 31st birthday, we  take a look at 5 of his note-worthy performances.

# Masaan: Vicky touched everyone’s heart with this performance of his. Marking his debut, Masaan became a film that people still adore Vicky for. His innocent character, his lean body and his chemistry with Shweta Tripathi made his character look exceptionally good on the big screen. Oh, and a lot of the credit goes to his acting as well. People discovered Vicky through this movie, and then it was just a wave of big offers for him.

# Raazi: Yet again, posing as an innocent husband worked really well for of Vicky. Although Alia did run the movie on her slender but strong shoulders, Vicky’s appearance was just like a cherry on the cake. The delicately nuanced way the actor played the role of Alia’s Pakistani husband Iqbal Syed, left everyone impressed.

# Sanju: If we ever want a friend, it would be a friend like Vicky Kaushal in Sanju. He essayed the role of a Gujju boy, Kamli, in the film, and stepped into the shoes of the character excellently. Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky’s camaraderie was appreciated by everyone, and his dialogue delivery had everyone feel each emotion that he was feeling.

# Manmarziyaan: Vicky was seen in a never-seen-before avatar in this film. He essayed the role of a DJ and his blue hair grabbed everyone’s attention instantly. He romanced Taapsee Pannu in the film and we can say that no one but Vicky could have essayed the role of an irresponsible and rash, but endearing lover with such ease.

# Uri-The Surgical Strike: This film was a milestone in Vicky’s career. Portraying the role of a Major Vihaan Shergill, Vicky raised the nation’s collective energy by simply asking, “How’s the josh?”.  It has been his best performance till date. The film made the audience cry, laugh, smile and and feel proud, and all the credit goes to Vicky for sure.

So these were our favourite films of Vicky’s! Which one is your favourite? Let us know in the comments section below.  Vicky will now be seen in Sardar Udham Singh, where he will essay the role of freedom fighter Udham Singh. He will also be a part of Karan Johar’s magnum opus Takht, in a negative role for the first time. We at CineBlitz also wish Vicky a very happy birthday.
