Sridevi, who is often hailed as India’s first female superstar, is considered as one of the finest actors to have graced the film industry to date. Sridevi ruled the silver screen in the 80s and 90s as the actor delivered a wide range of successful films. However, behind the glamorous beauty of Sridevi is a quiet and reserved person, as her friends from the industry would often say.
In a media interaction, Boney Kapoor, Sridevi’s husband, revealed that the actor loved painting and had once painted her niece, Sonam Kapoor. Here are the details.
During the episode of Salman Khan's reality game show, Dus Ka Dum, the actor spoke about Sridevi’s lesser-known talent of painting. Salman brought out two paintings of Sridevi for the audience to see.
As seen in the episode, Boney Kapoor further revealed the story behind one of the paintings. He narrated that Sonam Kapoor’s debut film Saawariya had just hit the theatres and Sridevi made the painting as a gift to Sonam Kapoor, wishing her luck. As per several reports, Sridevi’s painting featuring Sonam Kapoor was about to be auctioned in Dubai, post-Mohit Marwah's wedding. However, due to the actor's untimely demise, the painting was reportedly never sold.
