Sridevi is well and truly a name that needs no introduction at all. During an illustrious career, the evergreen diva has worked extensively in all the major Southern film industries except Sandalwood. During a recent chat with a leading daily, the ‘Last Empress’ spoke about never working extensively in Kannada films and said that she found the language to be a bit difficult.
“I have acted as a child artiste and a young girl in Kannada films, but I never got to doing many roles as the lead actress here. This is probably because I found the language a little tough,” added Sridevi.
Sridevi went on to add that she shares a special bond with Bengaluru nonetheless. She stressed that she still remembers shooting for ‘Sadma’ in the city.
“I have very fond memories of Bengaluru. We have shot for many memorable films here. My most significant one among them being the one-month-long stay here for the shoot of Balu Mahendra, ‘s Sadma and its Tamil version Moondram Pirai. I grew fond of the city and was very familiar with it back then,” added Sridevi.
Well, this is quite a nice response and is bound to make fans love her even more. On the work front, she was last seen in the Hindi film ‘Mom’ and received rave reviews for her performance. A thriller, it also featured Akshaye Khanna and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead. It was her first release since ‘Puli’.
