Fresh from the global triumph of her film English Vinglish, when Sridevi’s name was recently announced for the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour, the legendary actress joined an elite group of Bollywood divas honoured in the past. These actresses have not only ruled the marquee with their brand of magic but have also been the most beloved, most powerful and most celebrated women of their times and even today. With Sri being the latest recipient, it's a good time to look at the women in B-Town over the years who took home the Padma Shri:-

DEVIKA RANI: One of those rare Indian actresses who actually studied acting, Devika Rani was an alumnus of the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Royal Academy of Music in London. Along with her husband Himanshu Rai she started the famous Bombay Talkies studio starring in its maiden venture Karma. The film is still controversial for one of the longest kissing scenes ever on celluloid but it was her performance as an untouchable in the classic Achhut Kanya that immortalised this thespian. Many remember her as the first recipient of the Dadasaheb Phalke Award but not many know that she was the grand-niece of Rabindranath Tagore or that she inaugurated the first BBC broadcast on short wavelength to India.

NUTAN: She still holds the record of being the oldest actress to win the Filmfare. Nutan had a rare talent of sinking into her character that drew directors like Bimal Roy and Hrishikesh Mukherjee towards her. Seema, Sujata, Anari, Milan and Bandini still declare her as of the finest actresses of Hindi Cinema who developed a unique 'natural style' of acting. While her contemporaries basked in the glory of glamorous characters, Nutan quietly played women who were realistic yet unconventional. Even when she played supporting roles, she ended up being the pivot. No wonder decades later a nostalgic Sanjay Leela Bhansali sighed, 'They don't make actors like her anymore.'

HEMA MALINI: The Dreamgirl of Bollywood, Hema entered the national consciousness in early 70s and remained their forever. With Andaz and Seeta Aur Geeta, she was a star and with Sholay a brighter star. Like Big B, Hema ruled the 70s with her mesmerising beauty and a string of hits with top actors from Sanjeev Kumar to Dharmendra. Her dominance was so strong that despite the presence of a host of other actresses, none could challenge Hema. Besides films, the diva lives for classical dancing and her dance school Kalakendra. Besides chairing the NFDC and campaigning for BJP, the actress also made forays into TV with Noopur and even turned director for Esha's film Tell Me O Khuda.

SMITA PATIL: The only actress who gave Shabana Azmi sleepless nights, Smita remains one of the iconic faces of the filmi movement in 80s dubbed as Parallel Cinema. With filmmakers like Shyam Benegal and Govind Nihalani at the helm, this powerhouse performer gave one classic after another such as Arth, Bhumika, Chakra, Mirch Masala, Bazaar and Mandi. Besides being a part of this New Wave Movement, she also balanced commercial cinema with hits like Shakti and Namak Halal. Smita was an active feminist committed to advancing women's issues in a changing India. We can only wonder what more she could have done if she had not died at the age of 31 due to alleged medical negligence while giving birth to Prateik.

REKHA: She is still the proverbial Ugly Duckling who transformed into a beautiful swan. As she herself says, it was after Ghar that she earned respect as a star and an actress. Rekha had the gift of being uniquely versatile and so she could be the carefree Manju in Khoobsurat and the pining courtesan in Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. It was the latter role that seemed destined for her as she became the quintessential Umrao Jaan both in reel and real life following her legendary association with Big B. Known as the Greta Garbo of India, this current member of the Rajya Sabha still continues to fascinate the national psyche every time she steps out of her solitary house by the sea.

SRIDEVI: A recent list of 50 Iconic Actresses of Indian Cinema by CNN-IBN stated that while there are many divas, Sridevi will forever remain the First Female Superstar of Bollywood. The reason is elementary. Sridevi's blazing beauty and talent sent the Indian and the overseas populace into a hysterical frenzy unlike any other. From Tathaiya Tathaiya Ho and Hawa Hawai to Mere Hathon Mein and Morni Bagama. From Sadma and Lamhe to Mr. India and Chaalbaaz. Sridevi is still the longest running No.1 megastar of Hindi Cinema and in 2012 she also became the only actress to make a victorious comeback with English Vinglish. With a whole new generation now falling for this Indian Meryl Streep, Sridevi proves that some legends are truly timeless. No wonder this Chandni was Yash Chopra's ultimate favourite.

MADHURI DIXIT: She burst into the scene with Ek Do Teen and we have not stopped counting since. Armed with her trademark dance moves and that million dollar smile, Madhuri established herself as an inseparable part of our Indian culture. While the actress in her explored herself with Dil, Beta and Khalnayak, the divine danseuse took over in monster hits like HAHK, DTPH and Devdas. Her legendary looks captivated MF Hussain who not only painted her on canvases but created an entire film as a tribute to her in Gaja Gamini. Her comeback attempt Aaja Nachle may have failed in 2007 but the diva stands firm at Madame Tussauds smiling at her many admirers.

KAJOL: When bong beauty Kajol debuted in 91', she did not find too many takers. It was four years later with DDLJ that she simmered as Simran and rocked the world. Her pairing with SRK became box office gold and the pair have had several blockbusters like Karan Arjun, KKHH, K3G and My Name is Khan. Kajol also proved her mettle as an actress who could carry offbeat ventures like Dushman and even became the first female actor to win Filmfare for Best Villain in Gupt. A natural actress like her aunt Nutan, her fiery performances continue to light up the silver screen while her social work keeps her occupied in fields of education, cancer, widows and children

AISHWARYA RAI: The Most Beautiful Woman in the world can also claim to be a super actress and a super star. As Nandini in Bhansali's Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, she not only floored her audiences but also the director who went on to cast her as Paro in his epic Devads and later in Guzaarish. Her performances in Mani Ratnam's Guru, RGV's Sarkar Raj and Ashutosh Gowariker's Jodha Akbar also garnered huge applause. One of the first Indian stars to make forays into Hollywood, Ash is a regular now both on red carpets like Cannes and at humanitarian portals like UNAIDS, Pulse Polio, Eye Bank Association and Smile Train. The Aishwarya Rai Foundation is also committed to do its bit for the needy.









Comments

Juhi Chawla truly deserves this honour. Not only a legend, she is also doing so much for society. Her radiation work is commendable. I hope they recognise her devotion for social cause unlike Film fare who has been boycotting her since decades.

I totally agree with you. She is so underrated. I don't have any idea why she never got recognised as the superstar she really is. She ruled the 90s and the best part is she is still working after so many years unlike many of her contemporaries.

Why sridevi is such a big loser when it comes to awards?

Bad Karma???

May be, yes

What a pathetic comment. Sridevi has won plenty of awards in her career so far including the Padmashree. It was her Karma that she became the ONLY actress in Bollywood whose comeback became a global blockbuster while similar attempts by other loser actresses became a national joke. Besides who says awards define a star? Amitabh has less awards than SRK. Does that make him a lesser star than Shah Rukh? Salman never won a Filmfare Best Actor. Does that make him a lesser star? The greatest actress of our times Meryl Streep has won only 2 Best Actress Oscars out of 17 nominations. Does that make her any less a legend? Get a life loser!

It's raining honours for Sridevi. After the Padma Shri, Sridevi has now been voted INDIA'S GREATEST ACTRESS OF ALL TIME. In the 2013 national poll conducted by CNN-IBN, Sridevi has not only defeated Bollywood actresses like Hema, Rekha, Madhuri and Aishwarya but also left behind the best regional actresses across the country to be voted India's Greatest Actress Ever. She even won the poll with a landslide 39% votes. Sridevi proves again and again that she is truly the best.

Sri's pic should be put after Madhuri, Aish n even Kajol. She was recently awarded Padmashri whereas all other actresses were given this honour long ago. Sri is such a loser when it comes to awards.

sridevi truely deserves this honour.she is too good.an actress par excellence.in real life also she dresses so well.impeccably dressed.

I think this discussion is going somewhere else. Who cares about their personnel lives?
I personally like Madhuri and her body of work. Sridevi and Rekha were just average actresses. Madhuri is the most versatile.

Sridevi was second woman in Boney's life.

She didn't come first even in that fat pig's life :P She was a No.2 always in her personnel life as well as profession. HA HA HA

Same old Madhuri Dick-shit fan trolling everywhere badmouthing Sridevi. Ever since Madhuri's comeback attempt Aaja Nachle bombed pathetically, these despo MD fans have lost their mental balance. And now with Sridevi's English Vinglish becoming a global hit and she becoming the only actress in Bollywood history to make a triumphant comeback, these MD fans are all the more frustrated and jealous. Sridevi has not only been hailed as India's Meryl Streep but America's famous Variety weekly even compared her performance in EV to one and only Audrey Hepburn. You only need to Google it losers. They keep saying Madhuri is ahead of Sridevi and yet Madhuri could not even manage a decent comeback. LOL As for Madhuri's social image, everyone knows it coz she showed the whole world Choli ke Peechhe Kya Hai and had affairs with married Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor. No wonder your botoxed Madhuri is still getting B grade films like Gulaabi Gang. (YUCK!!!)

Madhuri got Padma shree when she was 39, Sri got it when she's 49

Madhuri is always ahead of Devi jee.

Padma awards are given not only on the grounds of one's achievements in one's field but also on their social image as well. Sri is one of the best actresses we have. But she never was and can never be a role model to any woman. She stole another woman's husband and that poor woman is no longer alive. People memory is short so now everyone has forgotten what Sri did to Mona kapoor in the 90s. That's why at that time Sridevi was never even considered for Padmashree. Now as people have forgotten the past and she is also acting all humble n down to Earth nowadays so she got this honour.

Wow....had no idea Sridevi was called the Meryl Streep of India at Toronto....after reading this write-up I googled and was zapped to see the reaction and respect she and English Vinglish got at Toronto Festival...it's such an honour that the international press there compared her to Meryl and the famous Variety weekly even compared her to the one and only Audrey Hepburn....Way to go Sridevi :)

--------------------------------------------------

ROFL...Sridevi and Meryl streep. Ha ha ha...don't be so creative Nose devi despo fans. It's an insult to Meryl streep. Media doesn't care about Sridevi. Devi ji's old fans keep on giving titles to her which nobody acknowledges :P Now it's getting seriously over. The same person keeps on writing these idiotic articles and commenting about Devi mata's greatness. She's the same great woman who actually murdered poor Mona kapoor. Nose devi will never be happy

Loving these B&W pics. Can't take my eyes off Sridevi and Ash.

Sreedevi's dazzling comeback proves she is still the Queen of Bollywood. Some legends are truly timeless and can create magic every after 15 years.

Sridevi is just too good. English Vinglish is a textbook in acting. I love Smita too.

what I realized is those who shout the loudest with their pr get awards, those who sit quite and let their work talk wait the longest, classic case with sridevi, she is so quite and shy that her juniors get padmashree before her, sad state of award.

IMO Hema was the most overrated no.1 actress, she could barely emote onscreen and relied heavily on her dream girl image. She could act but not in a way that i was mesmerized.

Just saw this incredible anecdote about Sridevi. During the shooting of Yash Chopra's LAMHE in 91, Sridevi was in London when she got news of her father passing away. She came to India to fulfill all ceremonies and returned to resume shooting for Lamhe after 15 days. Ironically the first scene she had to shoot the moment she got back was the Comedy scene where she has bleach on her face and rags Waheeda Rehman. Yash Chopra said, ''Despite the pain and what she had gone through, she gave a perfect one-take shot. It was as if at that moment she forgot everything and just became the character Pooja. At that moment I knew why Sridevi was, what she was.'' It's dedication like this that has got these women this honour. Bravo Sri. They truly don't make actors like you anymore.

I wish Sridevi was 20. I would have loved to chase her and woo her :)

If its only list..is not waheeda rahman also got it,if not than she should..
Rakhee Gulzar too deserve it..
I think Juhi will get it sometime in future..she should focus more on good offers n kept producing films like I Am..

What on earth, Kajol got Padma Shri before Sridevi? Was it because of My Name is Khan?

I mean, Sridevi is one of the 4 commercial Hindi cinema actresses of the last 40years whose faces are recognizable on all five continents, including Africa and Latin America (the other 3 being: Hema Malini, Tabu and Aishwarya R. B.). And she never even got any acknowledgement in her own country?

I suppose that serves her right for messing up her career in the mid 80s-90s with those pointless retarded films she did (Why the hell did she do Nazrana, Gair Kanooni, Chandramukhi, Mere Biwi ka... and Roop Ki rani for?).
Bollywood ruined her sense of acting back then, and still does nowadays (Look at Asin and Rani Mukherji: they have had no solid for performances for 5years. Vidya Balan was saved by her lucky mascot Mr Siddharth R. K. to get reasonable scripts thrown her way, when people were writing her off post Kismat Connection).

I guess Sridevi would have never had the award, had she not done EV: the film made Indian Cinema shine on International grounds. Now, let's see if she will get the best actress awards. Though I wouldn't be surprised the IIFA/Filmfare or so gave it to some random starlet...

A foreigner's insight.

PS:
BTW, your list didn't mention TABU, who is an even better actress (I'm NOT talking glamour doll!) with international recognition.

Kareena kapoor is next for sure...:-)

Does Sridevi have to be so freakin gorgeous???

Stunning queen bee la Dixit....wat a photogenic face!

@Thanks to Amar Singh Aishwarya Rai got that title and award. Because we all know how great of an actress she is LOL, by the way where is he now? Bachchans and him were like twins attached to the hips
Although Amar singh and Bachchan family was very close that time (2009), but Aish didn't get Padamshree due to him. Congress government was in power , and Bachchans were on bitter terms with Sonia Gandhi and Co. Did you remember the case when Amitabh and Abhishek were last minute dropped from Bandra-Worli sealink inaugration (amit ji had to post the invite on his blog to prove he was invited), and Abhishek was dropped last minute from event in Delhi hosted by Sheila Dixit? Why will Congress give their bahu the padamshree when they were acting anti- Bachchans all the time?

I rather think Saif got padamshree and Sharmila ji padam bhushan becuase of Patudi's political connections. Sharmila ji was a great actress as well, but not a superstar like Sreedevi. I dont think she deserves Padam Bhushan (A higher honor) before legends like Sreedevi. Also, Saif got national award for Hum-Tum.Just see the number of politicians who came to attend Saif-Bebo's Delhi reception, that proves it all. I wont be surprised if soon Bebo gets a padamshree or a National award since she is now officially part of their family

Madhuri's picture :O
The last of the true beauties in Bollywoood.And not just beauty but also talent .Too bad actresses dont have such an aura these days :(

WOW!That is great list.All of them are icons.And obviously,THE Aishwarya Rai is my favorite among them.I have grown watching the lady and her fab performances.A lady with a peerless stature,beauty,talent and brains.Hence,my favorite. :-)

So atleast we have the national honors which does justice to all the talented people!!!

Lol that Rani comment cracked me up. For what? Rani? shaking her butt with khans or for digging gold with Adi

All of these are 'ACT'resses for sure..also the other ppl who are not mentioned like tabu,shabana,jaya are also amazing actresses!So this one is VVERY credible!

Well deserved!!Ash,kajol,sri,nutan,smitha patil,devika--all deserve it!!!

Agree with you:)

next padsmree winner
@ Gulparna for hating kajol
losser

Stunning pics all but Sridevi is way too ravishing here.

I admire Sridevi man. To keep yourself away for as long as 15 years and then return with such a brave film and single handedly script the most glorious comeback ever in the history of Hindi Cinema is an impossible achievement. Take a bow.

Juhi Chawla has not gotten it?? That's strange and sad!

how come rani didn't get this honor??.and its really surprising that sri got this recently

well deserved all!

@Sat, 2013-02-23 13:38 — Anonymous just cos u cannot accept facts!you make excuses so u could be maliciously satisfied...talent is the key,dear.ash is a great great and versatile actress,n has all the superb performances for it.accept it or not!but it will always remain the truth..2 or 3 envious people like u don't matter at all.

All of them are icons!Smita Ji,Rekha Ji,Sridevi,Ash are wonderful actresses.

@Sat, 2013-02-23 13:38 — Anonymous You fool!!jealousy has surely made some people crazy.

Sridevi and Aishwarya Rai!Love them.Amazing actresses and acheiverss!

===============================================
LOLLL Stupid much or jealous much?Then Abhishek would have got it before..Yes,everyone knows how great as an actress she is..Raincoat,Provoked,Guzaarish,Chokher Bali,Guru,Sarkar Raj,Raavanan etc..None of the contemporary actresses come a mile close to her brilliance!Hence,she is the youngest recipient.Get that!

Yeah!You forgot tabu.Anyways,nice list.

@To the anon,speaking about Shabana Azmi
Shabana has a Padma Bhushan which is a even bigger honor and shabana is also the ONLY actress with most no. of National awards..She is a volcano of talent and the best actress in india!And she got it!Very well deserved all of these here too except hema malini,I think.

========================
Yesss!!Also Aishwarya Rai is 'till date' the youngest recipient of the huge honor!!
--------------------------------------
no she isnt! Smita patil died at the age of 31 and had recieved padmashree so she is the youngest recipient. Aishwarya is second i guess but i cant say for sure. Anyways it doesnt matter, they all deserve it.
PV post it.
.

Everyone deserved it :))

How come Kajol, Aish and Madhuri got it before Sri? I am quite surprised that she had to wait for English Vinglish to get this.
.======================================================

That is India my dear. there is no reason or any explanation- this is how India works.. its sad. The most talented of all got it so late. Call it stupid.. but there are far worse things that are going on in India that needs serious attention.

Congrats to all who have got! well deserved all!
Hopefully Kareena kapoor Khan will be next to get it! :)

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I know,right? He even walked the red carpet at Cannes with them. I think Amitabh had Amar around for more than political favors...wink, wink!!!

I am shocked if Shabana Azmi is not on the list, and to new some other actual talents: Waheeda Rahman, Tabu, Juhi Chawla. Ashwariya can act, but she is not all that on a scale of actual talent, but I can rest easy long as Kareena never gets this loll.

You are not a judge here

It seems that her attitude really makes you to have burning sensation in your stomach..........
So u comment in each and every post where Kajol is being praised !!!!

Madhuri and Kajol are far better than Karishma who just do XPOSE in half of her movies !!!!

To the article-writer
Kajol debut in 1992 not in 91 , and she became a star by Bazigar and Ye Dillagi prior to DDLJ !!!

Aish is also a great actress;'
She deserves this award
it is not due 2 silly Amar.............
Watch her in Devdaas , HDDCS , Taal , Raincoat , Guzaarish etc

Please learn to give respect to these great people and awards !!!
don"t fight always that blah blah awards are bullshit !!!

and congo to shri g

you forgot Tabu!

Almost all of them deserved it.Cool!

Great post!Glad,Ash's performance in Sarkar Raj is mentioned..It is one of the finest performances...So powerful!!She lived the character of the steely,headstrong corporate honcho.But it is not mentioned so often cos it was an Amitabh Bachchan film.

All of them are icons!

Great list!!!

All amazing actors and ICONS!!And absolutely DESERVED IT!!!

All talented and huge icons!!Very well deserved..The most reasonable and credible are the national honors and national awards ONLY!

check ur facts : @bolly_masala_news, Madhuri was awarded 1 in 2008, Aishwarya in 2009, Kajol in 2011, n Sridevi in 2012. some bckgrnd check before commenting doesn't hurt, I suppose!

With all respect to Ashwariya & Kajol, they dont deserved Padam shree award.

Meri chweeeet Kajol :*

Aishwarya won it before her seniors Madhuri & Kajol

Loooooove Sridevi's pic. Now that's a smoking hot woman

Sridevi has absolutely no right to look so beautiful. Not fair.
