Sridevi was undoubtedly one of the most talented and versatile actresses in the industry. Her sudden demise at the age of 54 has left everyone in a state of shock. While the actress is gone, her legacy remains. The actress, who began her film career at the age of four, went on to work in more than 300 films in Hindi, Tamil Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. With her beauty, charm and stellar acting skills, she went on to win millions of hearts worldwide. At the peak of her career, Sridevi got the tag of Bollywood's 'sex-siren'. But apparently, the actress was highly displeased with it.
In an interview she had said, "I feel very bad. When people come and tell me how beautiful I looked in a film, I don't react. But when they tell me I acted well I feel proud." She had continued, "If I look sexy just wearing a sari, can I help it? There are so many girls who reveal much more but they don't look anything."
When asked who the real Sridevi was, she had said, "Someone very simple. I'm an ordinary person. Nothing very interesting. Just another parents' daughter. Even ordinary girls have style. I don't think I've got that. You see the real Sridevi in the house. I hate to go out for parties. I like being at home with my parents. I'm a very shy person and difficult to get along with." Talking about stardom she had said, "It doesn't give me a chance to get to know life. Whenever I want a saree or anything, it comes to me. I have never been shopping. But I've got so used to it that even if I get a chance to experience things, I withdraw. I feel very uneasy with anything new. I feel comfortable only with my lifestyle."
