The chants of ‘Meray hathon may nau nau chorriyan hain’ still rings in our ears with Sri Devi performing with all her heart on it. She was a style icon, and followed by many. Her beautiful, deep eyes had a sparkle in them, inviting the audience to stay glued to the screens till she was there. Her famous snake-dance and then the star performance in Mr. India gave her the standard she deserved in the industry. Her comeback in 2012, with English Vinglish, after a long break, proved that her on-screen presence was very much alive. She started her career when she was only four years old, and her last performance in ‘Mom’ alongside our very own Sajal Ali, was a striking one. Her sudden death left her fans around the world shocked and miserable. But her performances through the years will continue to live in our hearts and keep her alive forever. Let’s go through some of Sri Devi’s highlighted moments:
