Sridevi featured in some of Rajnikanth’s very early films in which he played the antagonist. He is the village ruffian who lusts after Mayil, Sridevi’s character in the classic ’16 Vayathinile’ by Bharathiraja. In the knotty drama, ‘Moondru Mudichu’, Sridevi exacts revenge on Rajni – who stages the murder of her lover – by becoming his stepmother. In later films they appeared as a romantic pair in films such as ‘Dharmayudhdham’, ‘Adutha Varisu’ and ‘Johnny’, which is remembered to this day for its superlative music.
