Sridevi, Ramesh Sippy get Padma Shri Sridevi-Jhanvi Kapoor
Bollywood actress Sridevi and film director-producer Ramesh Sippy have been awarded the fourth highest civilian award of India, the Padma Shri.

Bollywood's "Hawa hawaii" girl Sridevi has been named for the Padma Shri, India's civilian award, on the eve of 64th Republic Day.

The 49-year-old, who made a grand Bollywood comeback in 2012 with a strong female-centric role in English Vinglish, boasts of a filmography of 265 movies. She came back after a 15-year sabbatical, and won hearts with her simple and subtle performance in the film as a homemaker struggling to learn English.

Sridevi started her journey as a child artist way back in 1967, and went on to do her first role as an adult in Tamil film "Moondru Mudichu" in 1976. It was only following scores of southern films that Sridevi found her Bollywood calling with "Sadma".

She went on to cement her standing in Bollywood with hits like "Nagina", "Mr. India", "Chandni" and "ChaalBaaz" and became the reigning queen of the Hindi films in the 1980s and 1990s.

She also won critical acclaim for "Lamhe".

Married to Hindi film producer Boney Kapoor, Sridevi has two daughters - Jhanvi and Khushi. Age has failed to take a toll on her as she looks as radiant as ever and spreads the same magic in front of the camera.


'Sholay' director Ramesh Sippy gets Padma Shri

Ramesh Sippy, the man behind cult film Sholay, has been named for the Padma Shri award on the eve of 64th Republic Day.

Son of veteran film producer G.P. Sippy, the 66-year-old made his directorial debut with 1971 romantic-drama "Andaz", after working as assistant director for seven years. The film starring Shammi Kapoor and Hema Malini as the lead and Rajesh Khanna in the guest role, went on to become a super hit.

However, it was his 1975 film "Sholay" that catapulted him into the big league. The Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra starrer not only was a blockbuster, the golden jubliee film ran for more than five years in a theatre in Mumbai.

Sippy's body of work as a director also includes "Saagar", "Shakti", "Shaan" and "Seeta Aur Geeta".

He also directed super hit television series, "Buniyaad", that showed the ups and downs of an Indian family in pre and post partition India.

His son Rohan Sippy is quite active in films as a director and made films like "Bluffmaster".
