Sridevi and Rajinikanth

Having debuted at the age of four, actress Sridevi made quite a mark through her acting in the Indian film industry. In a career spanning across five decades, the Mom actress worked in more than 20 films with superstar Rajinikanth alone, apart from her landmark movies in Bollywood. Even before she moved to the Hindi film industry, Sridevi was a popular star down South. One of her first films as a lead heroine was with both Kamal Hassan and Rajinikanth in K Balachander's film, Moondru Mudichu (1976).

A few years ago, Sridevi appeared in the Tamil version of the popular game show, Kaun Banega Crorepati, which was hosted by actor Prakash Raj. During the show, the actress was asked about her experience while working with the two versatile actors of Kollywood. Talking about the same, she said that she was nervous and also revealed that her salary was Rs 5,000, while Rajinikanth's was Rs 2000 and Kamal Haasan was Rs 30,000.
