Sri Devi was loved and cherished as one of Bollywood’s reigning queens in the 80’s who brought her iconic movies such as; Lamhe, Chandni, Mr. India, Sadma and Nagin, to be appreciated by millions of her fans worldwide. She was a firecracker on screen and we loved her swift moves, absolutely amazing comic timings and her enduring personality. At the age of 54, she was a glamorous woman who translated today’s fashion in perfect synchronization with her personality, yet her legacy faded in mere seconds when we heard of her untimely demise. So, as an ode to this gorgeous woman, here is Team SiddySays run down of their favourite movies of the legendry actress.
AMNA NIAZI: MR. INDIA
The big-hearted invisible hero who fights with a megalomaniac to save orphan children was Mr. India and I don’t think I can even count the number of times I watched and re-watched the film and the “katay nahi kat tay” girl in a sheer turquoise blue sari. The song was on repeat and Sri Devi was beautiful.
