Kangana Ranaut recently said that she had been Sridevi's biggest fan. Ever since the actor stumbled across a video of one of Sridevi's songs, she couldn't help but be in awe of her skill. She remarked that she finds it difficult to understand how Sridevi managed to express seduction while still seeming sweet as well as comical.
On Friday, Kangana shared a snippet from the track from a fan page in which Sridevi performed in the rain on her Instagram Stories. Kangana shared the video and captioned it, "It is beyond me how anyone can be childlike, innocent, or funny and yet portray intoxicating feminine seduction... Ufff...I am Sridevi Ji's biggest fan. Legend." She concluded her message with a heart emoji.
The clip's track was Kate Nahi Kat Te from the 1987 movie Mr. India, in which Sridevi and Anil Kapoor both had major roles.

Kangana has previously complimented Sridevi's acting talent. In a series of tweets posted on her Twitter profile in February last year, when it was still active, Kangana claimed to be the only actor following Sridevi to perform comedic roles. The actress highlighted Tanu Weds Manu, which she starred in in 2011, and its 2015 follow-up, saying, "I was stuck in edgy, neurotic roles. This film changed the trajectory of my career. It was my entry into the mainstream, too, with comedy. I strengthened my comic timing and became the only actress, after the legendary Sridevi Ji, to do comedy."
Before she passed away in February 2018, Sridevi had a five-decade-long career that included roles in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam, and Kannada films. Her last movie appearance was in Mom, which was released in 2017.
On the work front, Kangana recently appeared in Razneesh Ghai's film Dhaakad, which also starred Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, and Saswata Chatterjee. She will appear in Emergency since she is playing former prime minister Indira Gandhi. The plot of the movie is centred on the state of emergency was imposed in the country between 1975 and 1977. In 2023, the movie is scheduled to be released in theatres.
