Bollywood's first superstar, late Sridevi needs no introduction. She was one of the most sought-after actresses of her time, and she had carved a niche for herself with back-to-back hit films and unparalleled dancing skills. Married to filmmaker, Boney Kapoor, Sridevi was a doting mommy of her two daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. 

However, Sridevi had left for her heavenly abode after she passed away on February 24, 2018, due to accidental drowning in a hotel's bathtub in Dubai. Her untimely demise left a huge void in the Hindi film industry as well as in the hearts of her fans. However, her role of 'Shashi Godbole' in the film, English Vinglish is still etched in our hearts, and now, it's once again in the news for all the right reasons.
