Mumbai: Charlie Chaplin is celebrated the world over for his excellent comic timing and adorable expressions that brought a grin to people’s faces. An English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the era of silent film, Chaplin became a worldwide icon through his screen persona "the Tramp" and is considered one of the most important figures in the history of the film industry. And while fans all over the globe celebrate his 129th birth anniversary, Bollywood, too, has time and again paid tribute to the talented icon over the ages.

Late Bollywood superstar Sridevi, delivered the most jovial and energetic performance as Chaplin in Shekhar Kapoor's Sci-Fi drama 'Mr India' (1987). She along with a child actor gave us one of the most memorable scenes that showcase her impeccable comic timing. The very entertaining scene is Bollywood's wonderful tribute to the legendary comedian.

 

After the untimely demise of the legendary actress, 'Mr India' director Shekhar Kapur took to Twitter and shared the comic scene from the film. He said, "Comic timing in a blink of an eyelid. Even As I grieve for #Sridevi I couldn’t help admiring her amazing comic timing. Don’t know a single actor in the world that could have pulled this scene off like she did - Sridevi Charlie Chaplin sequence."

Kapur had even gone on to say that no other Indian actor could ever portray Chaplin as great as Sridevi did. “She did a perfect replication of Chaplin. I challenge any actress to do that sequence the way Sri did,” the filmmaker had said in one of his earlier interviews.
