Its been long since actress Sridevi left us all forever. The veteran actress was one of India’s first female superstars and she had a great fan following. Through her years in Indian cinema, she gave some amazing performances and all of them are going to stay with us forever. While we all admit that there is no actress in the industry that can be compared with her but there is no doubt that she is an inspiration for all the actresses in the Bollywood industry.
An award has been constituted in her name. This award constituted in her name for ZEE Telgu Apsara Awards 2018 will celebrate women achievers for their contribution to the society. Actress Tamannaah Bhatia will be the first actress to be felicitated with this honor in Sridevi’s name. Receiving this honor, Tamannah feels extremely proud. She made her Bollywood debut with ‘Himmatwala’, which was a remake of Sridevi’s hit movie.
At a recent event, she said, “Sridevi was someone I looked upto during my formative years in the industry. It is such a privilege to be presented an award named after her. I started out really young in the industry just like her and I understand that it takes decades to build a legacy.”
Sridevi has surely left her mark in Indian cinema and it will take years for any actress to reach that level. But with today’s actresses receiving an award in her name, a lot will help in giving them the inspiration to work harder and make her feel proud. Sridevi will remain in our hearts forever!
