Sri Devi was born with her real name Amma Yanger Ayyapan who worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada language films before making her debut in the Hindi film Industry. She started acting as child artist, early in late 1960s where her best performance in the Malayalam film Poombata released in 1971 awarded her the state award for best child artist.
In Bollywood, She made her debut as child artist in the film Julie released in 1975. As adult, she worked in the Tamil film Moondru Mudichi released in 1976 at age of 13. Sri Devi turned out to be one of the biggest and most popular actress in history of Indian Cinema.

Have witnessed Sridevi’s life from an adolescent teenager to the magnificeint lady she became. Her stardom was well deserved. Many happy moments with her flash through my mind including the last time I met her. Sadma’s lullaby haunts me now. We’ll miss her
