Sridevi, whose repertoire includes the Tamil winner MOONDRAM PIRAI and its Hindi version SADMA, both helmed by cinematographer-director Balu Mahendra, mourned his demise on a popular micro-blogging site stating, ''Deeply saddened on the demise of Balu Mahendra. The legacy of his creations Sadma & Moondram Pirai will live on. My condolences to the family.''


Balu Mahendra had served up a rather off-beat flick: MOONDRAM PIRAI that showcased Sridevi and Kamal Haasan in rivetting performances.

Sridevi, who starred as an accident victim who turns child-woman after suffering from temporary amnesia, was quite sanguine of clinching a National Award for her performance in MOONDRAM PIRAI.

Despite her power-packed performance, though, the actress was reportedly rankled to find that it was Kamal Haasan who ultimately romped home with the prized honour! Finding her hopes dashed to the ground, Sridevi had reportedly vowed not to work with Kamal Haasan again, after he stole the thunder (and National Award), from right under her nose!

So much so, that initially talks were on to cast Dimple Kapadia as the lead in SADMA. The late cinematographer-director wasn't too convinced about casting Kapadia and Sridevi was roped in for the Hindi version.
