Hyderabad remembers Sridevi

March 05, 2018 11:44 IST

The Telugu film industry remembers one of its own.

Producer T Subbarami Reddy -- the associate producer on Yash Chopra's Chandni and Lamhe which featured Sridevi in two of her most memorable roles -- convened a condolence meeting in Hyderabad.

Before she moved to Mumbai and became Bollywood's first lady superstar, Sridevi had done stellar work in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam cinema.

Despite her youth, she starred with Telugu superstars Nara Taraka Rama Rao and Akkineni Nageswara Rao, actors who were more than twice her age.

Jeetendra told Rediff.com last week that Jaya Prada and Sridevi were not rivals as much speculated in the early 1980s; they were thoroughly professional with each other.

 

Jaya Prada and Jayasudha are joined by Jeevitha, Babu Mohan, Krishna Raju, Rajashekhar and T Subbarami Reddy.
