Sridevi, who is regarded as the `first female superstar` of Indian cinema, passed away last year, but even today her unforgettable charm lives on.

On Sridevi`s 56th birth anniversary today, her daughter Janhvi Kapoor, who has always idolised her mother, posted a beautiful birthday wish for the late actor. "Happy Birthday Mumma. I love you," she wrote alongside a beautiful throwback picture of the actor, proving how badly she`s missing her beloved mother today.

Janhvi`s post has since garnered 1,79,547 likes and nearly 2,300 comments.

Priyanka Chopra, Manish Malhotra, Dia Mirza, and Masaba Gupta, among many others, sent love to the `Dhadak` actor on her heartfelt post.

Sridevi was also remembered by Anil Kapoor`s wife Sunita Kapoor, who celebrated her bond with the late actor, in a heart-warming post, "Memories are always special. Sometimes we laugh by remembering the times we cried, and we cry by remembering the days we laughed! That`s life. Happy birthday Sri, Miss you so much."

Designer Manish Malhotra, one of Sridevi`s closest friends, shared a stunning still of the legendary actor and wrote "Miss you" with heart emojis.

Last year, the film division, a subsidiary of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, organised a special screening of Sridevi`s movies in order to celebrate her 55th birth anniversary. Sridevi passed away on February 24 in Dubai, where she went to attend a family wedding. The late actor would have turned 56 today.

Born as Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan in 1963, she was known for her iconic roles in Hindi movies like `Chandni`, `Lamhe`, `Mr. India`, `Chaalbaaz`, `Nagina`, `Sadma`, and `English Vinglish` among many more.

The Padma Shri awardee had also made a mark with her extraordinary performances in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada films. However, her last film was `Mom` for which she also received Best Actress National Award, posthumously.` Mom` was Sridevi`s last film as a lead actor, while she had a brief cameo in 2018 film `Zero`, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma. Sridevi had already shot her scenes for `Zero` before she passed away.
