Shocked beyond words to hear about the sad and untimely demise of #Sridevi. A dream for many, had the good fortune of sharing screen space with her long ago and witnessed her continued grace over the years. Thoughts and prayers with the family. RIP 🙏🏻— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) February 25, 2018
The single image which epitomises Sri Devi for me. Whoever grew up in the 80/90s fantasised about Chiffon Saris on Swiss Alps. Rip Sridevi! 💔 pic.twitter.com/ToeguCrUV1— Maria Memon (@Maria_Memon) February 25, 2018
Had met #Sridevi ji last month at the Mumbai Police show, and like always she had a beautiful smile on her face and we spoke in our mother tongue Telugu...A great actress and a lovely person, she will be deeply missed. #RIP— Johny Lever (@iamjohnylever) February 25, 2018
