This post is a tribute to India’s one and only Chandni- Sridevi.
Sridevi..You’ll be missed
We recently came across a heart-breaking news of death of one of the superstars of the Bollywood of 90s era. Sridevi, the heartbeat of millions of Indians left us too early, at the age of 54.
She was in Dubai for a family wedding and was found dead in Hotel’s washroom on 24 February 2018.
Earlier it was told that she died of cardiac arrest but after the investigation and on the basis of her autopsy report, it is declared that she died of accidental drowning. Based on the recent statement of Mr. Boney Kapoor (Sridevi’s Husband) that he found her dead in a bathtub with not a drop of water spilling out, clarified all the doubts.
Isn’t this terrifying that how uncertain anyone’s life can be, just few hours back Sridevi kissed and hugged Mr. Kapoor (her husband) who surprised her with his unscheduled visit and asked her to get ready for a Dinner Date, and then she was found dead in a Bathtub.
This sorrowful news shook up complete India on 24th February morning. I got shocked too when my mom told me that Sridevi is no more, and i was like what, its unbelievable i was checking out her pictures last night over Instagram. Its may be a rumor. but it wasn’t.
Who knew the 90s Bollywood sensation would leave us this early.
Her Funeral took place in Mumbai on 28TH February 2018. Sridevi was draped in National tricolor and was accorded with a gun salute.
Sridevi was born on 13 August 1963, in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu.
She worked as a child artist at the age of 4 in the Tamil movie Kandan Karunai, and did her first lead role as child artist in 1967, in a devotional Tamil film Thunaivan and further acted in various Tamil, Telugu, kanadda, and Malyalam films.
Sridevi entered into Bollywood industry with her first film ‘Solva Sawan’ in 1979,
but got well recognized in 1983 when she did ‘Himmatwala’.
She further started giving Bollywood hit movies, which included ‘Mawaali’ in 1983, ‘Maqsad’ in 1984, ‘Nazrana’ in 1987,
And my all-time favorites & Must watched Bollywood Movies of Sridevi are
- ‘Lamhe’ in 1991,
- ‘Sadma’ in 1983,
- ‘Mr.India’ in 1987,
- ‘Chandani’ in 1989,
- ‘Chaalbaaz’ in 1989,
- ‘Khuda Gawah in 1992,
- ‘Laadla’ in 1994,
- ‘Judaai’ in 1997.
She then took a sabbatical leaves to take care of her 2 daughters for 15 years and returned back in films in year 2012 with the movie
- ‘English Vinglish’,
and then did her 300th film role in
- “Mom” in 2017.
She was awarded as Best Actor (female) for Mom. She has also been rewarded with Padma Shri.
She has been very well known for her iconic roles in Bollywood industry since 1983. She has played roles with Bollywood celebrities who include Amitabh Bachan, Anil Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and other legendary artists.
She was known as “ Hawa Hawai” girl due to her wonderful performance in Mr. India with Anil Kapoor,
and then she was recognized for her amazing acting in movie “Chandni” with Rishi Kapoor, she then became famous with the name of Chandni.
Talking about her personal life, she got married with a famous producer Boney Kapoor in 1996, and the couple is blessed with two daughters Jahnvi Kapoor in year 1997 and Khushi Kapoor in the year 2000.
Sridevi was playing a role of a mentor in Jhanvi’s (her daughter) real life, as she was about to get launch in a Bollywood flick “Dhadak” which is about to get released in July 2018. However now Jhanvi & the other family members are left with Sridevi’s memories only.
According to some media reports the personal life of Sridevi was not going well, the Kapoors were in debt and this lead to her stressful life. Sridevi was an over protective mother as well, she was too protective for her daughters Khushi and Jahnvi. Media will speak about her for few days, but its only family who will remember her forever. And no matter how much we try we cant feel that pain her family must be going through.
We still can’t accept the fact that she is no more.
It will take time for us to still believe that the Gorgeous Sridevi is no longer in this world.
You’ll be missed Chandni. And you will always remain my Favorite Star.
