Who was she?
On February 24 last year, the movie industry lost the iconic Bollywood actress Sridevi Kapoor, after complications following a heart attack. This occurred at a family wedding in Dubai. She was 54 years old at the time, and one of the most popular and accomplished veteran actresses in the Indian film business. She starred in over 300 movies. The whole of India was saddened, and even the Prime Minister offered sympathies to her family and friends. Read on to find out more about her life, career, and Sridevi Kapoor net worth.
Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan was born on August 13, 1963, in Sivakasi, Madras State, India. She started her acting career as a child actor in 1969. At four years old, she appeared in the movie “Thunaivan” by M.A. Thirumugham. At this time, she worked behind her birth name. After she gained success, she changed the name to Sridevi Kapoor. During both the 1980s and 1990s, she closely collaborated on various projects with Kamal Hassan and Anil Kapoor. In the beginning of the 1990s, even Steven Spielberg took notice of her work. He offered her a role in his iconic cult movie “Jurassic Park”. However, she turned down the role, as she believed it was not large enough for her.
More recently, she appeared in the Bollywood thriller film “Mom”, in 2017. This role gave her the Filmfare Award for Best Actress, as well as the Zee Cine Best Actress Award. Regarding previous awards and accomplishments, her work was rewarded for the roles in “English Vinglish”, “Laadla”, “Judaai”, “Kshana Kshanam”, “Sadma”, and “Chandni”.
Her career is one of the most successful and awarded in Bollywood. Other than the aforementioned ones, she won Stardust Awards, NDTV Indian of the Year award, and Starviews Film Awards. Back in 2012, Vuclip, a mobile research company, voted her the Most Admired Bollywood Actress. That same year, CNN IBN ranked her as the number 1 on the list of Best Bollywood Actresses.
