By  | 

Legendary actress SriDevi ruled Bollywood in the 80’s and changed the way how female actresses were looked at in a male-dominated industry. Sridevi was popularly known for her naturalistic acting abilities, her comic timing, and her graceful dancing skills. She is one such quintessential diva who could shoulder an entire film and could carry a film on success, purely on her own merit. Sridevi created a huge impact in the industry by playing some powerful characters in her movies right from her debut as a child in the 70’s till her last film in 2017. On the occasion of her birthday, author and screenwriter Satyarth Nayak announced that he will be writing a book dedicated to Sridevi.
