Sridevi made her debut as child artist in tamil in 1967 and got big break from K.Balachander movie moondru mudichu from then she acted in almost 300 movies ,won more than 10 filmfare awards and at the same time she made big way into telugu industry ,had major hits with NTR and ANR.Later she eyed bollywood and in 1978, she starred in her first Hindi film, Solva Saawan which failed at the box office. However, her second movie, Himmatwala, went on to be a super-duper success. Sridevi became a Bollywood star overnight and the film earned her the sexy nickname "Thunder Thighs",from then she continued to rule the box office until 1997 and later she called quits with movie Judaai and married producer Boney Kapoor.

sridevi's last major hit was chandni way back in 1989. thereafter madhuri followed with a string of hits in dil, kishen kanhaiya, thanedaar, saajan, beta, khalnayak, hum aapke hain koun, raja and dil to pagal hai. madhuri officially replaced sridevi after the success of beta in 1992 and held the top position till 1998 when kajol and karisma began to vie for it with kuch kuch hota hai and biwi no.1 respectively. so it is clear that sridevi was the numero uno of the 1980s from 1983-1990 while madhuri took over from 1991-1997. but yes, it is tough because between 1989 and 1994,especially around 1992-1993, juhi chawla threatened to put a spoke in madhuri's wheels with bol radha bol, raju ban gaya gentleman, aina, hum hain rahi pyaar ke and darr.

Hi all,
I think madhuri is not comparable with sri. madhuri took so much time nearly 4 to 5 years to settle in industry. but sri who replaced hemamalini and rekha from starting of her from 1983. madhuri ruled from 1991 to 1995 only, there after karisma later kajol replaced her. in 1996 she didn't have a single hit. Finally she got DTPH where karisma also there. Anyway even in 90's how we can forget the performance of the legend in lamhe, khudagawah, gumrah,laadla,judaai etc.. Actually in 90's sri is out of all these number games.

Actually, if you look at magazine covers and articles, Sridevi was being named number one from 1983 (himmatwala) all the way to 1993 (after roop ki rani flopped and gumrah managed some success, but madhuri with khal nayak and juhi with darr, bol radha bol, hum hain rahi pyar ke, saajan ka ghar, was riding high). Sridevi was still number one and the highest paid actress until 1993. Only then did Juhi and Madhuri become serious rivals for Sridevi, and Madhuri finally took the spot with Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, only to face Karishma and Kajol with DDLJ, Raja Hindustani, KKHH, etc.

Sridevi's last major hit wasn't Chandni--- 1989 saw Chandni, Chaalbaaz, and Gair Kanooni for Sridevi's success. Khuda Gawah in 1992 and Lamhe in 1991 had two of the biggest openings in the history of Hindi cinema, and were huge successes abroad, just not for the lesser educated domestic indian audience.

Here's the way magazines tended to declare the trend--
1983-1993-- Sridevi's reign on the box office; Himmatwala, Tohfa, Karma, Nagina, Jaanbaaz and then 1987's Mr. India officially puts her at number one, to be solidified with Ram Avatar, Chandni, Chaalbaaz, Gair Kanooni. Acclaim and popular dance numbers for Lamhe and Khuda Gawah keep her going strong in the early 1990s, until Roop ki Rani flops. 1993's Gumrah's success is not enough to rebound, especially in the face of bigger successes by other actresses.

1988-1997- Madhuri's reign at the box office; Tehzaab, Ram Lakhan, Saajan, Dil, Thanedar, Beta, Khal Nayak, and then finally Hum Aapke Hain Kaun solidifies her at number one, but not for too long. Juhi was easily the most successful actress in 1993--- Raju Ban Gaya Gentlemen, Darr, Bol Radha Bol, Saajan ka Ghar, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar ke, Aaina--- there was no stopping her that year.

So while Sridevi and Madhuri ruled the box office for nearly a decade each, and overlapping, sridevi was number one undisputed from 1986-1992 (after RKRCKR flopped), and Madhuri only from 1994-1996 (after her two releases that year flopped). Before 1994, Juhi looked like she would take the slot, and by 1997, Karishma and Kajol had entered the picture.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Well, Madhuri Dixit made a big name and created hype not because she was an exceptional actress(though no doubt she was an exceptional dancer) but because she was always projected by media as a heiress to the throne of none other than Sridevi. So, the very fact that she was competing with none other than Sridevi who had cut almost everyone in the competition be it Rekha, Jaya Prada, Dimple Kapadia, Meenakshi Sheshadri and so many others made her iconic !!!!

Why is it that actresses who took away the numero uno spot from Madhuri were never so hyped because it was nothing extra-ordinary. Sridevi gave a new definition to the women oriented cinema in an era where actors like Amitabh Baachan, Sunny Deol, Mithun, Aamir Khan etc. used to rule.

Madhuri Dixit was put against someone who was ruling the Male dominated industry for over a decade then; thats what makes her great. Madhuri Dixit without Sridevi was and would have been just any other Karishma Kapoor or Rani Mukerjee......

Now coming back to the question that: Who will rule Box Office ?

I strongly believe that the current generation of audience is very intelligent and has appreciation for cinema and performances which at one time were considered parallel. Gone are those days when only matka and jhatkas used to make the film hit. Now a days, you need a good script and actors who can act to get appreciated. I believe if Sridevi is given a script and a role she has so much potential still untapped that she is gonna excel. As for Madhuri, she needs to get out of this dance numbers now. In her entire career i only liked her in Prem Granth, Mrityudand and Devdas apart from that all movies were just dhaks-dhaks and choli ke peeche... Aaja nach le was the same theme and it bombed badly because you need good script and people want to see the actress in you at this age...

No doubt, Sridevi is going to use her much lethal weapon 'ACTING' to claim back her admiration... Kudos to her... Wait and watch time will tell !!!

The ultimate numero uno is Sridevi!!!!

Winning at online casinos is possible for anybody who is willing to put the time in. Unfortunately, a lot of people are looking for a get rich quick scheme, so they start to place bets without doing the proper amount of research. When you know what is going on at a internet casino you immediately increase your chance of success. And if you can couple this with a bit of strategy and know how, you will be well on your way to winning money. Just remember, the more you know the more you will win.
[url=]casino[/url] casino When you are seeking the play based on the bonus you should also check out the cashing out policies that are in place. There are some of the smaller casinos around that will limit the cash out that you can receive. In essence they are telling you when you can have the money that you have won and when you cannot have it. This is a very poor practice that takes place in some of the casinos and you should be mindful of such policies before you start playing. Most of the larger online casinos have no such limitations.
[url=]casino[/url] casino It is a whole new world in the internet. As with the real world, it has its good side, and its bad side. You have to be really careful when trying the online casinos, so you have the sole responsibility of protecting yourself from being cheated, and from fraud. [url=]online casino[/url] casino [url=]casino affiliate program[/url] As with all gambling bingo is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you! [url=]bingo[/url] [url=]bingo[/url] bingo bingo With online bingo your cards are randomly selected by the computer and you can play with a great number of cards sometimes as many as 100 or more. Ordinarily you will need no more than three or four cards. A display board or a caller will flash your bingo numbers and you will need to fill the pattern displayed to win the game. Some online games will have the computer automatically search and fill the numbers for you. Some people find this automation a kill-joy but some actually love the fact that all they have to do watch for the bingo flash!!! [url=]phentermine[/url] buy phentermine
