Top 9 Songs of Sridevi that Celebrate 50 years of her Stardom

Celebrating 50 years of Sridevi as an artist, entertainer and superstar of Indian Cinema through her songs.

                                         And when she danced, the nation swayed with her. Here are top 10 songs of Sridevi:

Indians have sunk in such collective sorrow over a death of a celebrity because Sridevi single-handedly made an entire nation laugh, cry, sing and dance. Much before Vidya Balan, Sridevi portrayed strong women characters in Indian Cinema like Manju from Chaalbaaz, Seema from Mr. India and Mehndi from Khuda Gawah. She was a style icon who reintroduced the grace of chiffon sarees, Rajasthani Lehngas and even plain denims. And when she danced, the nation swayed with her. Here are top 10 songs of Sridevi:

1) The raincoat clad Sridevi dancing in the rain with Sunny Deol to the tune of 'Na Jane Kahn se aayee hai' in Chaalbaaz has to top my list. She danced like no one was watching. She looked beautiful, innocent and so alive that one wanted to be right there with her in the rain.

2) The song 'Morni Bagah ma bole' is from my all-time favourite Yash Chopra movie Lamhe. Sridevi played a double role of a mom and daughter with aplomb in this. Her grace and her longing for her lover in this song makes you want to watch this song again and again. 

3) Oh this was a marriage anthem back in the 90's, 'Mere haathon mein nau-nau chudiyan hai' from Chandni. She looked as beautiful as a painting in every shot of this movie and no wonder the hero, Rishi Kapoor ends up showering her with flowers from a helicopter. 

4) This one is another gem from Chandni, Sridevi just wearing plain chiffon sarees walks down the meadows of Switzerland looking like a dream. What is she humming? 'Tere mere honthon pe, meethe-meethe Geet mitwa...

5) This song was a part of the childhood of the 80's kids in India - Hawa Hawai from Mr. India. This song also shows her perfect comic timing.

6) 'Ae zindagi gale laga le' is a soulful number from one of Sridevi's finest movies, Sadma. She played a girl suffering from Amnesia and she portrayed child-like innocence with such ease.

7)  When Sridevi romanced the invisible Mr. India in this song, she set the rain on fire. You can't take your eyes off her in a single frame. No wonder the entire nation sang with her 'I Love You'. 

8) And in Khuda Gawah the chemistry between Amitabh Bachchan was worth every frame. But the song 'Mere dish mein mene Suni hai' brought to life Sridevi and Nagarjuna's scintillating reel love affair. 

9) Have you ever wondered who made Snake dance an in thing? Yes Sridevi again. Watch her in 'Main Teri dushman' from Nagin.

Sridevi\'s dance performances were enough to pull the audience into the theatres. In a career spanning over four decades, her songs are a throwback to the dynamic personality she was.\r\n
