Few days ago Sridevi has attended the wedding reception of Jaya Prada's nephew Sidharth. Sridevi looked very pretty in her silver sari made be Manish Malhotra. It was a very nice thing to see how Sri and Jaya finally ended their cold vibes. Amar Singh has to be thanked for this as he initiated this patch up on his birthday and what we see here is the result. It is said that Jaya Prada has flew to Mumbai specially to go personally to Sridevi's residence to invite her and Boney Kapoor for the wedding.

We hope this will be a new beginning between the two actresses. Perhaps one day we will see them again shine together in a film as they did in many films in the 1980s.

It was all stars and glittery for Superstar Chiranjeevi's 60th birthday on the 22nd of August. Of course Sridevi had to be there too to wish Chiruji a happy birthday. After all they paired together in some of the biggest blockbusters of Telugu cinema. Sridevi attended the party with her husband Boney Kapoor. She appeared in a mint glittery sari by Manish Malhotra and finished her look with diamonds and a matching clutch. She was the Chandni of the night. Truly beautiful and elegant.

It is said that Sridevi has completed shooting her part in Puli and now she is concentrating on the preparations of her own home production film "Mother". Initially there were some news that Kamal Hasan's daughter Akshara will be approached but that did not happen for bad or for good. So for now Boney Kapoor and Sridevi are looking for the right girl to play that character & it seems they will be looking for a new face instead. 
The film will be more about Stepmom and Stepdaughter story. The relationship between them and the conflict that may arise. Of course this sounds damn interesting. Just give Sridevi the scope and the right subject and she can show her domination. After all this is THE SRIDEVI.
We are all looking forward for this project. How excited you are?
 
 
Yesterday 2nd June was Sridevi & Boney Kapoor's 19th wedding anniversary. The couple tied the knot in 1996 and been very much in love since then and until today. We wish them both a very happy anniversary and many more years to come of happiness, prosperity and success.
 
 
The Kapoor family be it Sridevi, Boney Kapoor & Anil Kapoor have kept everything on hold including Sridevi's own home production film "Mother". The reason is Boney's mother has been admitted to hospital and the sons have been spending most of their time with her there. 
For Anil it has been tougher as his mother in law is in hospital too. The Kapoors are going through tough times, but our prayers are with them for the well being of their beloved moms.
 
 
Sridevi's versatility does not stop in her acting and portraying the different characters. It extends to go on to her dances on screen too. We truly believe that Sridevi is the ultimate versatile dancer in Bollywood. Yes, of course there are other good dancers there. But the difference between them and Sridevi is in the versatility and dancing as per the character. That is what makes Sri's dance outshines others. The Queen has different moods for different songs. She is a true actress. Someone who lives her characters and goes into their skins and that include the songs that involves the character too.

There are many many examples. Last can be mentioned is Navrai Majhi from English Vinglish. Sri have a small part dancing in the song but it is not her who is dancing. It is Shashi Godbole. She was totally in character.

Today is the international dance day and we have made the below picture which depicts Sridevi in different moods. She has many dances but we have chosen these 9 dances:

1- Bubbly: Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Chudiyan (Chandni): Sridevi in a bubbly mood doing all the dance. Saroj Khan did not want any other girl to dance with her. She said that both she and Yash Chopra wanted the full attention to be on Sridevi. The song is one of the most used in weddings and Sridevi's dance is iconic.

2- Elegant: Tandav (Chandni): Are we exaggerating if we say that there is no more beautiful tandav in the whole history of Indian Cinema than this one? Sridevi in white is so elegant and gorgeous that it really makes this like an unearthly or a dream sequence.  It is too good that words are not there to explain. This has to be the most elegantly danced and looked tandav.

3- Venomous: Main Teri Dushman (Ngaina): The Song that shot Saroj Khan's name into fame. Even though Saroj was working since the 1960s but it was because of Sridevi that she got a name. Director Harmesh Malhotra said that this song was a normal song and a normal situation but it was because of Sridevi's performance that it became so famous even today. Here you see Rajni confronts her enemy with her sharp facial expressions. 

4- Glamorous: Naino Mein Sapna (Himmatwala): Her glittery costumes, her movements, her beauty all what made this song a big hit. The song is shot very beautifully. Yes there are pans and pots but what stands out here besides the music is Sridevi's dance steps with Jeetendra. 

5- Funny: Hawa Hawai (Mr. India): Saying she is just funny is underestimation. Sridevi or precisely Seema here is just too fun in the song. The lyrics is funny but what brings it to life is her facial expressions specially in that gold costume. That particular facial expression where she closes one eye and winks is completely priceless. 

6- Rage: Dushman Dil Ka Jo Hai Mere (Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja): You want to see rage? then watch this song. Yes grand sets and props but what is more grand is the rage in Sridevi's eyes. The big teary eyes will capture your heart. For us the best moments of this song are when the camera fully focuses on Sridevi's face. The end sequence of the song is magnificent by all means.

7- Sensuous: Har Kisi Ko Nahin Milta (Janbaaz): Sensuous and also Surreal. The song has a catchy beat, an awesome lyrics. but the contribution Sridevi gave to this song is immense. This was to be shot in western clothes but Sri insisted on the sari. She told Feroz Khan that if he did not like it she is ready to reshoot in Western. The cat walk sequence was the first shot. Everyone was so impressed by Sri. Feroz Khan told his cinematographer "She is angel. I want her to fly in the sky" From there the cinematographer added the background skies to the song. Boney Kapoor challenged Shekhar Kapur to represent Sri as sensuous in Mr. India which he did in Kaate Nahin Katte. But we still think that Janbaaz song has more sensuality to it.

8- Folkloric: Morni Baga Ma Bole (Lamhe) Pallavi dancing to the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in Rasjthan's desert. The Yellow blue outfit was such a beauty to look at but it was the saucer eyed Sridevi that you would stare at all the time. The song is such a treat to listen to and watch. It is one of the highlights of the film.

9- Comedian: Na Jane Kahan Se Aayee Hai (Chaalbaaz): Have you ever felt Sridevi resembled those beautiful anime characters? If you never felt so then probably you have not seen this song. Her look, the way she dressed, her big eyes. She is so cute and funny just like those cute anime characters. The portion where she holds her white umbrella and the last part of the song where it says zu zu zu zu zu make you feel that an anime film just became real and that beautiful character came to live!

Sridevi has many more memorable dances but we thought to present the distinctive ones that truly prove that she is the best Bollywood dancer.

Happy International Dance Day guys!
 
 
Yesterday Sridevi and Boney Kapoor attended politician Amar Singh's bash. Sridevi looked radiant in a pair of glimmering slim fit trousers with a rose detailed, sequinned crop top. This is by Manish Malhotra and specifically from his latest collection Mijwan 2015. She also finished her gorgeous look with a glittering Jimmy Choo clutch  and Christian Louboutin pumps.

At the Colors TV Annual Party the incident happened and the different sources of media highlighted it repetitively. Lots of confusion as both their husbands were also involved!

Masala Magazine posted this:
"Apparently, Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi are still shooting daggers at each other, after so many years of having abdicated the spot of reigning queens of Bollywood! If witnesses are to be believed, the cold shoulder they gave each other could have frozen the atmospheric moisture into rather dangerous icicles!
 
Looking stunning, Sridevi proudly walked the red carpet with hubby Boney Kapoor. And Madhuri, who was on the same red carpet with hubby Sriram Nene, apparently saw red! Her facial expression was a dead giveaway when she saw the smiling Sri approaching. Looked like Sri was all set to say hello to Mads but had to settle for being ignored! Mads, smile still intact, apparently turned her back on Sri with amazing precision, as if to greet another guest. You could have cut the air with a knife!"
Honestly, not a big deal. We did not want to post this as it is not that important but when we saw the below picture of Madhuri Dixit and the way she looks at Sridevi we had to post it.
We can clearly say that the above picture depicts the whole career moves of both of them. Successful Sridevi smiling, moving & looking forward, while on the other hand Madhuri Dixit looking at her with what you can term as Jealousy & Envy!

Madhuri Dixit who is a media hungry celebrity appears many times on media with her wide smile but the personality behind that face is not quite the same as the smile she keeps on! We don't want to go in depth into the subject but we have to tell some important points here. Madhuri Dixit has tried many times in media or outside the media in so many ways to make fun of Sridevi or hurt her career in a way or another, but Sri has always ignored her and been victorious. 

There are so many incidents from the past and present days. From the past we can mention how she tried mimicking Sridevi in Khal Nayak, which was in a bad taste & not to forget that mimicking Sri was her own idea and that Subhash Ghai was reluctant first before giving her the green light to do it!

Then you have the incident where she demanded the producers of her film Dil Tera Aashiq to release the film the same day as Sridevi's Chandramukhi! Both films had Salman Khan as the hero, but Madhuri was thinking that Dil Tera Aashiq had a better chance of becoming a hit since her previous release with Salman "Saajan" was successful, Both the films were released and both flopped at the box office. Salman Khan was devastated and angry at her. He did not sign a film after that with her for a long time even though Hum Aapke Hain Kaun which was  signed before with her was a hit film. Madhuri wanted to hurt Sridevi's film and instead she hurt her own film too! Of course she denied it in many occasions & interviews but the producers and Salman know the truth.

There is also the Judaai thing. Madhuri Dixit was the first choice to play Urmila Matondkar's role in Boney Kapoor's Judaai but she rejected the role and asked to play Sridevi's character. Both Boney Kapoor and the director Raj Kanwar rejcted that. She asked her secretary then Rakesh Nath to do all what it takes to get the role of Sridevi, even if she had to reduce her price! Madhuri probably was unaware that Boney & Sridevi were already married at that time and that the whole project was made for Sridevi! Rakesh did his best using all the  manipulative tactics madam Dixit was known for but eventually failed. If Rakesh Nath one day opens his mouth about her, lots of dirt will come out and many will be surprised!

These are just few incidents. We can write a whole book about the things that  Madhuri said and did in the past. 
From the present she again had her own share of trying to make fun of Sridevi be it in Koffee with Karan when she commented on Sridevi's English which made both Karan Johar and the other guest Juhi Chawla uncomfortable. Of course Madhuri then became so uncomfortable when Juhi talked beautifully about Sridevi!

Then at Filmfare Awards 2013 when she deliberately did not mention Sridevi's name when asked about the good performances. She even mentioned performances that she have not seen but not Sridevi's which she already saw!

Another thing is the fake alleged standing ovation she and her fans claimed at IIFA Awards 2013! A weakly written paid article was sent to several websites to spread the fake news. 4-6 people standing from thousands of audience does not make this into a standing ovation!. How many times Madhuri Dixit danced on stage? many many times. Why there was never a talk about a standing ovation in any of them except this one? Simple answer: because Sridevi also had a performance at the same function! So how to raise her own dance above Sri's? Paid articles! Thats what her godfather Subhash Ghai used to do for her and she learned it from him!

Some of you might say that Madhuri said few good things about Sridevi in few occasions. Believe it or not, whatever Madhuri said good about Sridevi was just a diplomatic act in front of the camera and that too only when she was asked about Sri. She would always avoid mentioning her. Is it jealousy until this day? we think yes, as the lady have witnessed how Sridevi gave a successful comeback after 15 years while her 3 comebacks all tanked at the box office and that was followed by a flop TV show. In this event she probably was jealous of how beautiful Sridevi looked and because both Boney & Sri were accompanied by 4 guards appointed by the party organizers while she had none! If the organizers of the party did not think that you have a star status what could Sri do about it?

And by the way Madhuri Dixit's manipulations were not all just against Sridevi even when most were against her but she also did the same with actresses like Jaya Prada, Meenakshi Sheshadri and Amirta Singh who are better actresses than her.

A piece of advise to Madhuri Dixit, no matter how many times you smile in front of the cameras, The smile will not make you feel good because you need to change from inside. Jealousy is a bad thing and it will consume you sooner than later!
 
 
Sridevi attended Kalki Koechlin's Margarita with a Straw screening with her husband Boney Kapoor. The empress had a sleeveless pastel pink shirt on with minimum makeup. She looked very simple yet ravishing.  You can find more pictures of the event HERE

Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was one of the most anticipated films in the 1980s because it had the team of Mr. India again. The film was launched at the Silver Jubilee success party of Mr. India in 1988. This was the second film with the same title. The first was starring Dev Anand & Waheeda Rehman. 
Picture
Initially Shekhar Kapur agreed to direct the film but he then decided to leave the project. Satish Kaushik who was the assistant director of Mr. India stepped in and made his debut as a director with this film. The film started shooting in 1988. Some scenes and songs were shot. The movie was delayed so many times due to so many reasons. be it stars dates, reshooting some outdated scenes. lavish sets building etc. Even the opening credits of the film was very costly! It was at that time when Yash Chopra requested Boney Kapoor some of Sridevi's dates to be given in favor of his own film Chandni. Boney did not mind but again that added to the delay of the film.
Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was at that time the costliest film ever made. Its budget has surpassed the Rs. 10 Crore & in our times that means over Rs. 100 Crore! Lots of efforts were put in lavish film sets and costumes, but unfortunately less in story building. The first half was fun to watch specially with Sridevi & Anil Kapoor competing each other in burglary, but in the second half the film started to feel rushed and lacking a solid story & dialogue.
Picture
The song Dushman Dil Ka Jo Hai Mere was shot in 1988 and it had a lavish setting. Sridevi was mind-blowing be it  her dance, her look and her expressions, they were all something you expect from The Sridevi. Neeta Lulla has done all her costumes for the film and most of them were exquisite and grand. The premiere of the film itself was extraordinary and grand. It had many big names attending be it Amitabh Bachchan, Yash Chopra, Subhash Ghai, Rekha and many other stars. Trophies were given to the cast and crew of the film. Sridevi's trophy was given by none other than Rekha.

The film was released after a long delay in 1993 & opened to full houses but unfortunately could not sustain. The cost was too huge to recover. Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja's failure was due to its cost. If the film hadn't costed that much it would have definitely fared much better commercially. A film is usually considered a hit when its revenues are higher than its cost by a good margin. Some films that year were hit even though they made less money than Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja but they had the advantage of a much lower cost.
To the people who have the film on VHS they will notice that many of the outdated scenes and even some portions of the songs were chopped when the film came in DVD. All the DVDs released for the film from different companies lack some of  the original footage. So if you have the VHS then keep it until a DVD that has the full content of the film is released which we doubt will happen.
Picture
Sridevi was the highlight of the film. Actually Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja has nothing else other than Sridevi be it her wonderful acting or superior dancing. She did the Madrasi comedy scene to perfection. The Japanese woman and so many other unforgettable avatars. The film has so many lovely moments that cannot be forgotten. At least this film to Sridevi fans will remain one of her carrier's many memorable films. Each one of us have his own reasons to like the film.

It is nice to see The Last Empress herself remembers the film today & tweets about it.
Below is the video of launching the film during the Silver Jubilee party of Mr. India in 1988.
