Veteran actress Srividya’s Abhiramapuram house (an apartment) is to be auctioned soon by the Income Tax Department to recover the income-tax dues to be paid by the late actress.
Srividya, who had starred opposite the likes of superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan in the late seventies, late played ‘mother’ to them (on-screen, of course!) in films released in the nineties. The actress, who passed away in 2006 due to breast cancer, starred in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi movies.
One of the most unforgettable actresses in Kollywood, Srividya was active as an actress for more than 35 years. Her apartment, located in a multi-storeyed apartment block in Chennai’s posh Abhiramapuram locality, is to be auctioned.
A dance school is run at the apartment block now. Income Tax officials raided the 1250 sq. Feet Abhiramapuram residence yesterday. The base price of the apartment has now been fixed as Rs.1.17 crores.
