Many actresses want to look like her and play her on-screen. Latest to wish that she can fit the bill is Tamanna.
She did act in Himmatwala remake in 2013 which was a break-out hit for Sridevi after Nagin in 1983 in Hindi.
But the movie failed and now, she is continuously doing horror-comedies in various languages. Anando Brahma remake Petromax is releasing in Tamil on 11th October.
She is playing the role of Tapsee and legendary comedian Goundamani will be seen in the film. The title is an ode to his comedy punches.
Tamanna requested many to not refer to her as Milky Beauty at the pre-release press meet of the film, where she expressed her wish to act as Sridevi on-screen.
But she said she wouldn't be so sure about family members of Sridevi giving permission to make a biopic on the actress and let her play the Diva on screen.
She also stated that she doesn't want to limit herself to horror comedies and hence, she is doing an action film with Vishal.
