Even her birthplace was a blast. Sridevi born as Shree Amma Yanger Ayyappan hailing from Sivakasi was destined to be the first female superstar of Indian cinema. Starting out as a child artist, Sridevi played mythological roles to sibling charecters during her toddler-hood.
Rightfully playing a teenager in 16 Vayathinile, Sridevi had stardom at her door step, even before you realized she could be a full-fledged heroine. She was the instantaneous choice of film makers to be cast opposite big heroes. From women-centric performance based roles to ones oozing out glamour, Sridevi did it with perfection. She was one performer who could also sizzle on screen having complete control over the language as well. Having paired with all possible Superstars regionally, it was time for the beauty queen of South to go pan-Indian.
The 'nose-job' made Sridevi a household name throughout the country, inspiring a generation of actresses trying to make it big. Then, the real life mother Sridevi was busy concentrating on her personal life to get it all set. After a hiatus of 15 years, Sridevi came back with a bang. English Vinglish was a blockbuster running to packed houses all over the world. This is an unimaginable feat for an actress eyeing a comeback. We at Behindwoods wish the evergreen actress with the jaw-dropping beauty, who is turning 51 today.
