Sridevi and Srilatha lost their dad in 1991 and their mother in 1996. And between the death of their parents, the sisters entered a bitter dispute – which ended up in court – over ownership of huge properties in Mumbai and Chennai.
The sisters ended up not talking for over two decades because Sridevi had to give such a huge lump sum to her sister and her husband as compensation.
