Sridevi’s untimely demise on Friday night left us shocked and saddened beyond words. It took a long time to realise that our beloved Chandni was no more with us. Today, as we saw the hordes following the truck carrying her mortal remains to the crematorium, we knew that Sridevi the legendary actress and pan-India superstar will live on forever. A number of celebs made their way to the Celebrations Club in the morning to pay their last respects to the icon. Some of them were contemporaries and others who grew up in the 90’s idolising the stunning actress and her body of work. Beauty queen and actress Sushmita Sen was also present.
Later, Sushmita who is blessed with the capacity to pen down her thoughts in the most beautiful manner wrote a tribute for the actress, which left us moist in the eyes. She shared on Instagram, the screenshot of an email she got from a childhood friend, who knew what a huge fan she was of Bollywood’s Chandni. Sush’s close pal was worried that she would be in a really upset frame of mind. Well, the lady wrote a few words saying that the strength of Sridevi was visible in the manner she raised her daughters, who were graceful even in their moments of unimaginable grief.
We can see how beautifully Sushmita has put down her feelings. It is heartbreaking that Sridevi could not see daughter, Janhvi’s Bollywood debut with Dhadak. She was also super excited for Karan Johar’s Shiddat but even that project was unfulfilled. The actress left celluloid to solely focus on her family in the mid-90’s. It was only after a long time that she returned with English Vinglish (2012). The upbringing she has given to her daughters is exemplary.
