Sridevi!

They don’t make actors like you anymore. Your void will remain for years to come.
Coincidence or Happenstance अबnoरmal was launched a day before her tragic death & I have been meaning to pay a tribute ever since but simply haven’t managed to come to terms with her death yet. So, in true style, I am going to celebrate her life by launching a “Chaalbaaz” choli on her birthday! For me & I am sure for countless other fans she lives on thru her work.

Chaalbaaz was a seminal film in that “the look-alike twins separated at birth”plot had been done to death several times over including the very popular Ram Aur Shyam & Sita Aur Gita. Sridevi made a definitive statement thru this film that not only could she act & dance but she could do perfectly timed comedy & carry a film on her shoulders. She was among the first heroines to do that repeatedly in Indian films & the first one to be paid serious money to do so. A true trailblazer who was reticent & shy despite so many firsts to her credit. Who can forget her “Michaely Jacksony” Manju act or her seductive “Balma” or her rain dance that made raincoats sexy!

Presenting the “Chaalbaaz” choli a second in our “Pehchaan Kaun?” series where we will have your backs covered with famous celebrities in their famous movie “characters”.

Fully Handpainted (not screen printed copies that flood the market) this choli in pure cotton is a masterpiece like Sridevi & her countless characters.

Sizes: The choli comes in standard ready to wear sizes 34 to 48 with a 2 inch margin inside for alterations.
