Sridevi’s sudden demise has left the entire nation numb. The whole film industry is deeply shocked and shattered with the news of the Mom actress death. She died due to cardiac arrest in Dubai. The final rites will be taking place in Mumbai today.
It’s indeed one of the darkest days for Bollywood. The news of her death is unbelievable. She was a legend who will be remembered till eternity. Everyone is giving their condolences and sharing their last words with the diva.
Adil Hussain her English Vinglish co-star too penned down the most emotional words for her. He says,
“I got a message from a friend of mine around morning 7.45 am about her death and I didn’t know how to react because I had just woke up, then I checked on the internet and it was all over. The feeling was strange and bizarre, I felt frustrated and angry about her loss. I didn’t have a personal relationship with her after the film, but I felt frustrated with the reason that we won’t be able to see her on screen; I am just trying to understand my feeling. It hasn’t yet sunk in; the emotions are very difficult to express on her loss”.
Adil recalls his first meeting with Sridevi, “My first meeting with her was on the look test rehearsal of English Vinglish. I was 3 films old and I was little nervous in front of her. She was sitting in the rehearsal hall and then I was made to sit beside her for the rehearsal, I didn’t know how to start a conversation, so I told her I loved her film Sadma(1983) and I couldn’t sleep for 2 days and she looked me and felt that I am sincere with my compliments, she instantly had moist in her eyes. I thought ‘oh my god’ this person is so vulnerable; also working with her was so satisfying. I wish I could do English Vinglish 2 with her.”
Before signing off he narrated, “I will always remember her as one of the finest actors in the industry we can ever have.” It’s one of the saddest days in the world today. May her soul rest in peace.
