I lost out on going to school, and college life: Sridevi

Though a successful actress, her work commitments, however, did not allow her a normal childhood.

Sridevi was born Shree Amma Yanger Ayappan in Tamil Nadu state in India, She made her acting debut aged just four, and went on to have a career spanning over four decades.

She worked in India's regional Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam language films before entering Bollywood. Though a successful actress, her work commitments, however, did not allow her a normal childhood.

In an interview with The New Indian Express in 2013, Sridevi spoke of missing out on a carefree childhood when she began working as an actor in the 1970s.

"I lost out on going to school and college life but I got into the film industry and worked without a gap  -  from child actor I went straight to heroine. There was no time to think and I was grateful for it," she said.

"In order to get something you have to lose something. You can't have everything in life. So I am happy with what I got."

Sridevi appeared in around 300 films and was set to see her older daughter Jhanvi make her Bollywood debut soon.
