Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra had taken to her social media account and had expressed her disbelief about Sridevi’s passing away when the news of her untimely demise broke.
Priyanka wrote, “She could be childlike, grown up, funny, serious, beguiling, sexy—she was the ultimate actor.”
She also reminisced her last meeting with Sridevi and wrote that Sridevi pulled her into a tight hug and had talked about her daughters Janhvi and Khushi when they met on the red-carpet of an event back in December.
Priyanka remembers her idol fondly. She also wrote, “She was my childhood, and one of the big reasons I became an actor. To refer to all of us as mere fans would be a disservice to her. When the news first broke of her passing, I was immobilized. All I could do then was listen to songs from her films, revisit her interviews and watch her iconic scenes over and over again. I knew I was not alone; millions were feeling that exact emotion of shock and loss. Her connection with the audience was so strong that that each one of us has special memories linked to her.” Priyanka also wrote that everyone wanted to be like her.
Priyanka also mentioned about Sri's work in different languages and her natural performances. She wrote that Sridevi owned each frame she was in and would not need a male actor to bring in the audience. She credited Sridevi for being India’s first female superstar.
