Sridevi & Boney Kapoor

The 1963 born, Sridevi, was the reigning queen of Hindi film industry in the late 1980s. We loved her in movies like Sadma (1983), Nagina (1986), Mr India (1987), Chandni (1989), Chalbaaz (1989), Lamhe (1991). Not that she is a phenomenon from the past. More recently, we saw her in the movie 'English Vinglish' (2012) for which she won numerous awards and we loved the Sridevi in her late 40s just as much too. In 2013, she was voted 'India's Greatest Actress of All Time' in a CNN-IBN Poll
Here are some Did-You-Know facts about the actress-

  • That Sridevi was born as Shree Amma Yanger to a Tamil father and a Telugu mother.
  • That she played the younger sister of Julie in the film 'Julie' in 1975.
  • That Sridevi was initially cast in a double role to play the role of both Kajol and Shilpa Shetty in the movie 'Baazigar' (1993). However, fearing that the audience will not sympathize with the man who kills Sridevi in the movie, the cast was changed.
  • That since Sridevi didn't know Hindi at first, Rekha had dubbed for her in the movie Aakhree Raasta (1986).
  • That Rekha was supposed to play her role in Chandni that went on to make her super famous.

  • That her daughters, from husband, Boney Kapoor, who she married in 1996, are named after the heroines in his films- Judaai (1997) and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai (2000), Jhanvi and Khushi. 


Fyi, Boney Kapoor (1955 born) is a famous film producer himself, having produced movies like Mr India and a few more with Sridevi and his younger brother, Anil Kapoor, in lead roles, among others. The actor, Arjun Kapoor (28, of 'Ishaqzaade' fame) is his son from his previous wife, Lt Mona Shourie Kapoor, with whom he also has a daughter.
Sridevi is now 50 and still sports a rocking personality that is evident in the family picture that she tweeted of her family vacationing at the Maldives on New Year's day with the caption, "A very happy and peaceful start to 2014". The picture created quite a sensation in the media, seeing how gorgeous she and her daughters look.
 
 
Well, we certainly wish that the entire 2014 year is happy and peaceful for you and your family.
