Sridevi’s Birth Anniversary: Vidya Balan Unveils The Cover Of A Book Dedicated To Sridevi

On the 56th birthday of Sridevi, Penguin Random House India announced a book on the Indian cinema legend. The book titled Sridevi: Girl Woman Superstar, has been written by author-screenwriter Satyarth Nayak. This morning, we brought you the sweet wishes of daughter Janhvi Kapoor and husband and filmmaker Boney Kapoor. On her 56th birthday, Vidya Balan took to social media and shared the cover page of the book.

Sharing the monochrome picture Vidya wrote, “I am honoured and delighted to officially launch the Cover of the Penguin book on the iconic Sridevi on her 56th birthday today. Congratulations to author @SatyarthNayak, dear @BoneyKapoor sir and the @PenguinIndia mavericks @mileeashwarya and @film_worm.”


Speaking on the book, the author told Indian Express, “I have always been a huge admirer of Sridevi and this book gave me the perfect opportunity to celebrate the journey of India’s beloved screen goddess. It was wonderful interacting with various film personalities that she worked with over the years, and put together their memories and stories into a narrative that charts her saga from a child star to India’s first female superstar.”

“What I am proud of is that besides her legendary innings in Hindi Cinema, this book for the first time delves deep into her iconic body of work in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada cinema. I am sure this comprehensive narrative on Sridevi will be embraced by millions of her fans from across the globe. I am indebted to Penguin for sharing my vision for this book, and would especially like to thank Boney Kapoor for being a pillar of strength in helping me realise my dream,” he added.

Approved by Boney Kapoor, the book will be written by author and screenwriter Satyarth Nayak and will be published under the Ebury Press imprint of Penguin Random House in October 2019.
