Sridevi is no more and her fans are still reeling under the shock. The beautiful actress, who had crossed her 50s, passed away at a family function in Dubai in February and that left a void in Bollywood no other actor could fill. Sridevi was matchless and had an aura of her own. She danced like a dream; and she acted like it too! The doe-eyed beauty had a professional life full of highs and lows – highs mostly – and she ruled the Indian silver screen by her presence in the late 80s and early 90s, which made her one of the most sought after actresses of her time.
A cruel blow of fate in February 2018 cut short her acting career of five decades, which had only started to look up, post the release of her last film in 2017. In a long and fruitful career, Sridevi acted in a number of movies across different film industries and proved that when talent matters, nothing else does! With that, we take a look at the list of top films, which had the late Sridevi in memorable roles.
15. Tohfa (1984)
Out of the many films in which Sridevi starred alongside Jeetendra, K. Raghavendra Rao’s ‘Tohfa’ was the most memorable one. And not because it had a well-intentioned storyline or a talented star cast, but because of its songs that topped the charts at the time of its release. Sridevi played Jaya Prada’s sibling, who falls for the same man as her sister, yet decides to move on and sacrifice her love for her sister’s sake. Love triangles were quite popular in the late 80s and Sridevi’s ‘Tohfa’ added to the long list. The film’s flashy dance sequences and amusing dance moves are best remembered for all the loud sets and glitzy attires the actress had to don to make the film work.
