I have a place with the age that grew up watching a ton of films featuring Sridevi. She was a mainstream culture symbol and huge numbers of us used to mouth her exchanges from the movies we adored. I was one of those fans who might resentment the ones who couldn’t value her ability. So while composition Tumhari Sulu, where the lead character is from my age, I thought that it was just normal to acquire references of Sridevi and her movies. They made her character genuine and relatable and permitted the Sridevi fans in Vidya and me to pay a tribute to her.

It’s additionally why we didn’t redo Hawa hawai, and utilized the first tune. In any case, what makes the memory uncommon is that Sridevi recognized as well as valued our tribute. At Tumhari Sulu’s review in Worli, she voyaged the distance just to salute Vidya and wish her luckiness. It wasn’t something she expected to do,but she tried, and that goes to demonstrate her glow.

That day, I met her out of the blue and my heart really avoided a beat. I am a fan however Sridevi’s inauspicious passing is a misfortune to me likewise as a producer. She was the sort of performer one would give an exorbitant price to compose for. In any case, with her not among us any longer, a considerable lot of us will have that one film we will never have the capacity to make. — Suresh Triveni chief, Tumhari Sulu

Sridevi and I initially met in 1990 when she was at that point a hotshot and I was starting my profession. Working with a symbol I generally called her Ma’am. We have seen each other develop professionally and actually – it was astonishing to see the parts she bloomed into, her enthusiasm for painting, and the hovering spouse and mother she was. I met Sridevi as of late in Dubai and we simply had such a great amount to share. I will dependably treasure the valuable recollections of a companion who was a famous whiz. — Manish Malhotra Fashion originator

My most valuable memory of Sridevi is the time she said to me ‘Sridevi is nothing without Saroj Khan’, to which I advised her ‘Saroj Khan is nothing without Sridevi’. God had given her all that she should have been a magnificent artist — she had the tallness, beauty and she could make the correct articulations. She got the hang of all that I showed her rapidly and she could never turn up on the sets without having completely practiced her means. — Saroj Khan Choreographer


For us, living in Pakistan, she was the courageous woman who administered the screen like a ruler. She was as cherished in Pakistan as she was in India. At exhibit, I’m in Dubai and, the previous evening, I met Boney-saab (Boney Kapoor). He was sobbing hysterically. The whole country must be so tragic. For Sajal Ali (Pakistan based co-performer in Mom), Sridevi sahiba resembled a mother. Sajal’s mom passed away amid the shooting of Mom. Sridevi comforted her colloquialism: ‘I’m similar to your mom’. Amid the shoot, she dealt with Sajal like her child. Four days back, I was at the wedding of Mohit Marwah. My flight arrived at 12 in the night. I expected I would be late. When I achieved, she stated: ‘Itni der kardi aapne aane mein.’ Those words are as yet ringing in my psyche. Perhaps that was her last farewell. — Adnan Siddiqui on-screen character and co-star in Mom
