Sridevi to receive outstanding achievement award at IIFA

New Delhi : ‘The reigning queen of Bollywood’ Sridevi is all set to receive an award for outstanding achievement in Indian cinema at the 2016 International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) gala.

The Award will be presented to the superstar at the NEXA IIFA Awards held during the four day long Videocon D2h IIFA Weekend from 23rd to 26th June 2016 in Madrid, Spain.

A longtime friend of IIFA, the actress previously performed on the IIFA stage and this time, fans will once again get to see her at Madrid as she receives the IIFA Award honoring her past work and the lasting imprint it has left on Indian Cinema.

The IIFA 2013 stage saw Sridevi take on dance guru, Prabhu Deva, and the two enthralled audiences with their fancy footwork to some of the icon’s biggest hits.

Sridevi has had a long and impactful career in the Indian film industry with a number of her films receiving cult classic status. Her work in films has been recognized and applauded in not only the Hindi film genre but also for her work in the South Film Industry and is appreciated by the Indian diasporas across the world.

A true veteran, she is one of the few actresses to have made a successful comeback even after getting married and landed a lead role, and continues to make an impact in the film industry through her films like ‘English Vinglish’. (ANI)
