I was never much of a Sridevi fan.

For me, the universe began with Rekha and ended with Madhuri Dixit. But then, as a philosopher once said, being a Madhuri Dixit fan in a world without Sridevi has no meaning. And I personally know a few who would vouch for that statement. From one afternoon in Class X when my best friend and classmate candidly confessed how watching Sridevi in Tohfa changed the way he perceived of romance, to last Sunday when another friend excitedly filled me in with stories of Sridevi's epic performances in South Indian cinema before her stint in Bollywood calling — something I had very little clue about!

At which point, I decided to dig up my old quiz notes, poured over a couple of books and watched an assortment of her films.

The result is this old-fashioned tribute to Sridevi below. Think you've got what it takes to crack it?
