Internet and print is full of glowing tributes for Sridevi – the eternal Chandni – and the legend that she has been, these glowing tributes are going to go on forever. Unarguably one of the greatest ever, Sridevi has inspired a pantheon of actors of not only this and the future generations, but also stalwarts of her own generation.
In some of her performances, she stopped being an actor and became a woman you grew up around. To me, the memories of Sridevi lies to a great extent in the songs she danced or simply starred in, elevating them to a dizzying levels of awesomeness. So without more words, let’s look at the very best of those:
Hardly a surprise, this one is almost an alias name for our legend.
Tu Mujhe Qabool
Regal in every sense of the word, this number from Khuda Gawah gave us a chance to see Sridevi in a royal avatar.
Tu Roop ki Rani, Tu Choro ka Raja
The title is enough.
Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Chudiyan
Unless you have spent your life living under a rock, there is no chance this blockbuster song went past you unnoticed.
Infectious, in every sense of the word.
I Love You
This Mr. India song epitomizes sensuality like no other rain dance number.
Ae Zindagi Gala Laga Le
Not glamorous like the other tracks on the list, but this one deserves a mention for it is from the movie that gave us arguably the greatest Sridevi performance. And that’s saying something.
Hit the Play button and relive all the enchanting moments.
