One of the most interesting things about the Sridevi phenomenon is how her star-power as a heroine often eclipsed the hero, which is not something one sees too often in Indian cinema. She had the charisma, the chops and the fanbase to carry a movie on her own.
She's certainly not the only actress to do so. One can argue that even some contemporary actresses, like Aishwariya Rai or Priyanka Chopra have that ability as well (I disagree, but that's just me).
But how many actresses have had meta-songs created for them?
I have always been amused by songs that reference Sridevi the Star within them, and just wanted to share a few of them with you:
And one of my favorites!
Just some fun! And though today is the last official day of SRIDEVIPALOOZA, for me it will continue, I have quite a few of my favorite films of hers to review, including Meendum Kokila, Masterji, Gair Kanooni, Moondram Pirai, Justice Chowdhary and Devaragam just to name a few!
I've been watching Bollywood movies ever since my consciousness set in, which was roughly around 1981-ish. I have a lot of Bollystalgia and I just wanted to share it. I'm also a Bharata Natyam Dancer, a singer, an avid reader, and a Harry Potter freak. I wish that life had a soundtrack. You can also follow me on Twitter or check out my Tumblr account.
