Mumbai: Sridevi undoubtedly ruled Bollywood in the '80s and the '90s, and films like ‘Mr. India’, 'Himmatwala’,’ Lamhe’, ‘Chandni’, 'Khuda Gawah' are rightly being referred to as some of her most memorable films.
But before all this, the actress had already displayed her superstardom in South cinema starring in hits galore, right from K. Balachander's ‘Moondru Mudichu’ in 1976 to ‘Naan Adimai Illai’ in 1986.
And the magnitude of her cult following can be gauged from her pairing with two of the most popular actors of all time, Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan.
Sridevi not just featured in more than 20 films with both of them, she was also among the lucky few to share screen space with the two in the same film, like in ‘16 Vayathinile’ and ‘Moondru Mudichu’.

The actress’ mortal remains are likely to return to the country on Tuesday after the repatriation formalities are completed....
