Sridevi, who made her acting debut at the age of four, had many big hits like Chandni and was especially noted for her impeccable timing as a comedienne.
She took a 15-year-long break from movies in 1997, a year after her marriage. She returned in 2012's English Vinglish. Sridevi stunned fans with her performance in Puli, which also marked her comeback to Tamil cinema after a gap of more than two decades.
Last year, she was seen in revenge-drama -- Mom -- opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna. She shot for a special appearance in superstar Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film - Zero -- which releases in December.
Sridevi received the Padma Shri and won several Filmfare awards. She is survived by husband Boney Kapoor and her two daughters, Janhvi and Khushi.
