In an impressive career, spanning five decades, the actor ruled the commercial cinema space in the '80s and '90s like no heroine had done before.
In an industry dominated by male superstars, Sridevi reversed the trend by her heer acting prowess. Her name, most of the times, was a guarantee enough for a film's success.
Sridevi’s real name was Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan. She had adopted the name Sridevi, for her screen life.
An extremely shy person in real life, Sridevi came alive in front of the cameras, playing a variety of roles. Such was her popularity that her style and dance moves would be copied by her fans country over. She was 'Miss Hawa Hawaaii' and 'Chandni' for them.
