New Delhi: The glamourous and beautiful Sridevi has turned 51 today. The actress who started her career in Bollywood with `Solwa Sawan` in 1978 has over three decades of cinematic experience and has given innumerable hits. She has millions of fans across the country.

She shot to fame in the blockbuster hit `Himmatwala` in 1983 in which she starred opposite Jitendra. Sridevi has been a phenomenon ever since she joined the industry. She epitomised the feminine with `Chandni` and `Lamhe`. Her soft voice and cute characters touched the hearts of many.

She also had great comic timing, something her contemporaries like Jaya Pradha lacked. Her role in `Mr India` and her double role as Anju – Manju in `Chaalbaaz` are classics. She is versatile and has tried many genres. She has also crossed the boundaries of language. One of her most memorable performances was in `Sadma` in which she plays a amnesiac young woman, who has gone back to her childhood.

She made a fabulous comeback with `English Vinglish` which won her critical acclaim as she carried the movie and her character exceptionally well. It is one of the best women oriented movies of this decade.

We wish the elegant and ageless Sridevi a very happy birthday. May she remain an inspiration for the millions of people around the world.
