Sridevi turns 54

Top film celebrities greeted Bollywood`s Hawa Hawai girl and veteran actor Sridevi on her 54th birthday on August 13, 2017. They hailed her as a “true treasure of Indian cinema”. She made a name not only in Bollywood but also worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada movies. Believe it that she returned to films after a 15-year-long hiatus with `English Vinglish` in 2012. She was last seen on screen in a powerful role in `Mom` recently. Sridevi made her debut as a lead actress in Bollywood in 1978 with `Solva Sawan` and gained popularity with `Himmatwala` in 1983. She has to her credit successful movies including `Mawaali`, `Mr. India`, `Chandni` and critically acclaimed films like `Sadma`, `ChaalBaaz`, `Lamhe`, `Khuda Gawah`,` Laadla` and `Judaai`. The star married producer Boney Kapoor in 1996. She was unparalleled as the leading lady in the 1980s and a tough competitor to Madhuri Dixit in the 90s. Post marriage and after the birth of her daughters, she retired from the arclights and little was seen of her between 1998 to early 2000s. It almost felt as if like other leading ladies of the eras gone by, Sridevi too had disappeared into oblivion.
