Sridevi passed away last year but her charm lives on even today and she lives in the memories of her loved ones and fans. A slew of celebrities including her daughter Janhvi Kapoor reminisced the late star and put out some heartfelt posts on social media.
Anil Kapoor's wife Sunita Kapoor too wrote a heartwarming post on Instagram saying that she "laughed and cried" together with Sridevi.
Last year, the film division, a subsidiary of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, organised a special screening of Sridevi's movies in order to celebrate her 55th birth anniversary.
Sridevi passed away on February 24 in Dubai, where she had gone to attend a family wedding. The late actor would have turned 56 today.
Born as Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan in 1963, she was known for her iconic roles in Hindi movies like 'Chandni', 'Lamhe', 'Mr India', 'Chaalbaaz', 'Nagina', 'Sadma', and 'English Vinglish' among many more.
The Padma Shri awardee had also made a mark with her extraordinary performances in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada films.
However, her last film was 'Mom' for which she also received Best Actress National Award, posthumously.
