Sridevi’s 1st Death Anniversary: Tinaa Dattaa, Adaa Khan, Shashank Vyas, Piyush Sahdev Share Their Favourite Memories Of The Late Actress
On February 24, 2018, Sridevi left for her heavenly abode. Now, exactly a year into it, as everybody has been remembering the enigmatic lady, several Television actors too share their fondest memories of the actress

Smiriti Kalra: 

Sridevi is my favorite actress. Nobody does comedy like her. I talk about her in the present tense as she lives in my heart. As a child I have grown up dancing on her songs- ‘ Mere Haathon Mein Nau-Nau Chudiyan Hai’ and ‘Morini Baangan Ma Bole‘. Through her films, she has made me laugh and cry and smile and giggle and I would want to remember her like that.

Krishna Bharadwaj: 

I remember the first film of Sridevi I watched was Sadma on DD1 and I remember that I cried a lot. That character affected me so much that I fell ill. Sadma is my all-time favorite film of Sridevi with Kamal Hassan. I learned what acting can be,  since childhood I wanted to be an actor and I was surprised with the character that so much can be done as an actor. Her character in Sadma has always been with me.

Moon Banerrjee: 

I'm a hardcore Sridevi admirer. I remember watching Lamhe and Chandni more than 100 times. There was a time I would enact a scene or dialogue from her movies with utmost ease and perform in front of my family. Sridevi is and will always be my favorite.

Piyush Sahdev: 

I have been a fan of Sridevi's films from the '90s. Mr. India has been one of my favourites and how she played Charlie Chaplin in the film, it was not easy to portray Charlie Chaplin but she did it with such ease, she's an inspiration to many. A few days back, I watched Mom and the charisma of her onscreen presence doesn't seem to fade.

Shashank Vyas: 

I have always loved her acting and how she's been versatile in her career. She played every character with such conviction be it a comic role or a serious one. I have grown up watching her films like Nagina, Chaalbaaz, Sadma, Lamhe, and Chandni being my most favorite.

Saurabh Pandey: 

An actor and a legend like Sridevi will never be born again and the amount of acting she has done, it was just crazy. Hindi was not her first language and still, she worked within the South and Hindi movies both and made a mark. I and my wife adore her acting and we wished we could meet her someday. My personal favorites are Mr. India and Lamhe, also Khuda Gawah. She was a phenomenal talent, a nuclear bomb of talent. It's saddening that we lost her but she will always be remembered and she'll be shining forever.

Rehaan Roy: 

Sridevi is the ultimate Queen of Bollywood. I clearly remember I had a huge crush on her in my childhood. I fell immensely in love with her after watching Chandni. Not just Chandni in fact, Chaalbaaz, Mr. India, Judaai, Nagina, and recently English Vinglish and Mom, these are my all time favorites. Her movies have always been the best source of entertainment and as an actor we have so much to learn from her. As it’s correctly said, actors never die, she is a legend and she will always remain the same for every one of us.

Adaa Khan: 

Sridevi was my favourite actress. I loved her a lot and I used to watch all her films, be it Chaalbaaz, Mr. India's Hawa Hawai was my favorite, Morni Baga Ma Bole in Lamhe and Mere Haathon Mein Nau Nau Chudiyan in Chandni. I took inspiration from her while working in Naagin, I looked up to her and I am happy that I worked for something that she had been a part of. She was very expressive especially her eyes and I always try to do that. As an actor one should know to express from the eyes and that's what I learned from her. I really look up to her and I hope she's happy wherever she is. May her soul rest in peace.

Rohitashv Gour: 

It was disheartening to lose Sridevi. She was a talented actress, dancer and what not, she was a perfect heroine. I loved her film Sadma, the way she enacted in the film was so heartbreaking. She was a very spontaneous actor. She even did a comic and serious role in the best way and her dancing skills are what the whole world admires.

Kishori Shahane Vij: 

I have been a huge fan of Sridevi as she has been an icon for me. She was a huge star already when I started my acting career. My favourites from her career have been Chandni, Lamhe and Khuda Gawah her performances have been amazing. I think she was the only actress who got so many double-role oriented films, while dancing also her performance was fantastic, her moves, her expressions. I used to have a girl crush on her. She's been a great inspiration and I was looking forward to her films. Her performance in English Vinglish was brilliant. 

Tinaa Dattaa: 

I have been a huge Sridevi fan since childhood. I remember watching her films Chandni, and Lamhe which have been a major textbook for me as I aspired becoming an actress. I took some inspiration for my first show from her films. It's a great loss to the industry as I only pray may her soul rest in peace.

Mahhima Kottary: 

Srideviji’s choice of characters in films was varied and she portrayed all the roles, so effortlessly! She is irreplaceable and I remember in my childhood I saw her film ‘Judaai’ and was mesmerized and awestruck by her performance. The sparkle in her eyes, her charming personality and how convincingly she initially portrayed a negative character and turned positive later on is commendable! One of my favourite films of hers! She will live forever in our hearts.  

Ansh Bagri: 

It was really sad to know that Sridevi is no more with us, she was a legendary actress. I have watched her films during 90s, Chandni and Lamhe have been my favourites. She was a great dancer and has been an aspiration. She has inspired many and even today when we watch her films they have been so impactful. She did different characters and they left a mark on everyone's mind.

Bhanujeet Singh Sudan: 

I remember Mr. India and how the song Kaate Nahin Kaatte song, she was a crush amongst the youth. My sisters and me we huge fans of her and we never missed any songs and I remember how her songs from Chandni and Lamhe were always and are still played at weddings and how her performances have been evergreen.

Abhishek Tewari: 

I met her during the shooting of this film 'Farishtey', when I was only 3 years old. The shoot was going on in FRI, Dehradun, the area behind my house. I accidentally got lost in the crowd and went straight to the shooting area where her song was being shot. I can hardly say my name that time but I managed. An assistant of the film announced my name for my parents, announcing that a kid is lost and my mother tells that she came and asked for my name and got me to my parents and took care of me like an angel till my parents arrived. When my mother came she even asked do I watch her films I said yes! One of the cutest interactions I had and an unforgettable childhood incident of my life. At that moment she came like a 'Farishta' for help. It breaks my heart now. She was an angel of a person. It was too soon. I wish we would've met again and wished would've worked under her aura. She'll always be missed.
