Sridevi wishes Kamal Haasan

Actress Sridevi, who has worked with Kamal Haasan in over 20 films, on Tuesday wished him well for his “new ventures” on his 63rd birthday.

Asked what she’d like to wish for Kamal, Sridevi told IANS over phone from Mumbai: “He’s a great actor, everyone knows about it. I wish him all the best — whatever his new ventures. And well, till he told me, I never realised I did 24 films with him. It was great working with him.”

The actors have teamed up for Hindi, Tamil and Telugu films. One of the best remembered projects in Hindi is “Sadma”.

Sridevi was wary of commenting on Kamal’s decision to take the plunge into politics.

On his birthday, Kamal announced the launch of a new app, which marks a step towards his political debut. He hinted he will launch a party in January 2018.

Rajamouli Regrets His Comments on Sridevi

Responding to the controversy involving him and veteran diva Sridevi over Sivagami’s character in ‘Baahubali’, Rajamouli said that he regret to have talked about her on a public platform.

In an earlier interview, Rajamouli said that Sridevi couldn’t play Sivagami character as she had too many and too exorbitant demands. Reacting strongly to Rajamouli’s comment, Sridevi in another interview said that the ‘Baahubali’ director shouldn’t have spoken about her remuneration and other details on record. Besides saying that she was hurt by his comments, Sridevi denied to have made the demands allegedly divulged by Rajamouli.

In a chat with a leading national media house, the ace director said that he shouldn’t have discussed the details of approaching Sridevi and the following happenings on public platform, and that he regrets his mistake. Rajamouli went on to say that he has huge respect for Sridevi, who has been a flag-bearer of the Southern film industry in Bollywood for many years. He wished her all the best for ‘Mom’ and other upcoming projects.

When asked about Sridevi denying to have asked the high remuneration and other demands that he had divulged earlier, Rajamouli said that as both of their versions are now in front of people, they can decide whose version they want to believe.

Sridevi’s Response to Rajamouli’s Allegations

Veteran actress Sridevi, who had been avoiding the question of rejecting Sivagami’s role in ‘Baahubali’, and the subsequent outburst of Rajamouli against her in an interview, has finally opened up.

‘I am being asked the same question when I attend for interviews in Mumbai, Chennai or Hyderabad. I have rejected many films in the past due to my own reasons. They went on to become big hits. I thought they were not in my destiny. Neither I or any filmmaker talked about those films ever. I don’t know why it has become an issue in the case of Baahubali,’ Sridevi said.

Clarifying on her exorbitant demands, as revealed by Rajamouli, she said, ‘It is being alleged that I have demanded Rs 8 crore remuneration, an entire floor in a star hotel and 10 flight tickets to sign Baahubali, it is completely false. I wouldn’t have acted in 300 films if I make such demands”.

‘Rajamouli is a dignified and very calm filmmaker, I have huge respect for him. I think he was misinformed on my demands by producer. Anyway, he shouldn’t have talked about me in that manner on a public platform. I was really hurt when I saw his interview,’ she concluded.

Sridevi is currently busy promoting her upcoming film ‘Mom’, which will hit screens on July 7.

Veteran actress Sridevi, who will next be seen in upcoming film “Mom”, says her daughters — Jhanvi and Khushi — never liked their mother to sing a lullaby for them as she has a “bad voice”.

Sridevi appeared on children’s singing reality show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs Season 6” to promote “Mom”.

“Whenever I would read them (Jhanvi and Khushi) a bedtime story, they’d never sleep, but when I would sing them a lullaby, they’d immediately fall asleep as I have a bad voice and they wouldn’t want me to sing any further,” Sridevi said in a statement.

She further said her daughters are “sensible kids” and have never given her a chance to be strict with them.

“I am more like a friend to them than their mother,” she said.

“My kids do not like to eat junk food at all. On the contrary, there are times when I, myself, wish they’d go eat some,” she added.

The episode of Zee TV’s “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs Season 6” featuring Sridevi will be aired on Mother’s Day on Sunday.

To mark the occasion, Sridevi said: “A woman is incomplete without her mother or without becoming a mother.”
