In an impressive career, spanning five decades, Sridevi dominated the commercial space in cinema in the 1980s and '90s. She reversed the trend of the male-dominated film industry by her acting prowess. Her name guaranteed a film's success.

She started acting at the age of four and made her debut in 1969 with M A Thirumugham's Tamil film Thunaivan. She continued working in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada movies but became a national film icon courtesy her Bollywood films.

Sridevi made her Hindi film debut as a child artiste in 1975 hit "Julie" and continued ruling the South Indian film industry where she established herself as a leading heroine with films such as 16 Vayathinile, Sigappu Rojakkal, Meendum Kokila and Moondram Pirai.

In Bollywood, she made her debut as a lead actor in 1978's Solva Sawan and followed it up with a number of commercial hits such as Himmatwala, Mawaali, Tohfa, Mr India, Chandni, Lamhe, Nagina and Khuda Gawah among several others.

Sridevi took a break from acting after 1997 film Judaai to focus on her marriage with producer Boney Kapoor and daughters Janhvi and Khushi.

She made a successful comeback 15 years later with Gauri Shinde's English Vinglish.
