India's superstar Sridevi was laid to rest today. She was cremated with state honours in Mumbai.
After bidding their beloved, a painful goodbye, the family has now released a joint statement on social media.
In the statement, the family thanked millions of Sridevi's fans and well-wishers for their outpouring of love, that helped them in this difficult time.
Her talent was undeniable, her beauty unmatched and her ability to connect with the audience was legendary. Sri had the same connect with her family as well. The one thing that helped us all get through these last few days, was the amazing amount of love and support from everyone — be it her many colleagues, to her innumerable fans, her caring friends and loving family, from across the country and the world.
The family has requested all of Sridevi's fans to now shower all their love and blessings to the actor's young daughters.
This outpouring of love is the memory that we would like Khushi and Janhvi to have of their mother... a woman who was loved unquestionably by everyone. Let us all who loved Sri, envelope her two little ones, her life, as she often called them, with as much or more love than we gave Sri so that they can live their lives ahead with a little less ache in their hearts. Let us help them remember their mother fondly, with that beloved twinkle in her eyes, and help them build a life and be what Sri had dreamt for them.
This is the entire statement.
Thousands of fans took to the streets today in Mumbai to bid a tearful goodbye to their favourite actor.
Sridevi is survived by her husband and two daughters.
