From Mr. India and Chandni to English Vinglish and MOM, the versatile actress has spread immeasurable love and happiness with her art and beauty. None of us can forget her performances, especially in the songs like Hawa Hawai, Mere Haaton Mein Nau Nau Choodiyan Hai, and Morni Baagan Mein Bole Adhi Raat Ma.
She has been a very important part of our childhoods and even our parent's youth. She had spent 50 of those 54 years in doing what she loved the most. She has given us 135 movies in 5 different languages - Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. And her cameo in SRK's Zero is yet to hit the theatres.
Her impeccable comic timing along with her inimitable expressions are going to be missed by all of us. But more than us, her daughters are going to miss her. Jhanvi Kapoor, Sridevi's elder daughter is shooting for her debut film Dhadak, while Khushi, Sridevi's younger daughter was with her when this tragedy took place.
They haven't lost their mother. They have lost their role model and support staff, just when they were in the doldrums of the career. Just 48 hours after Sridevi posted her picture from the family wedding she was attending in Dubai, the sudden arrival of death happened.
One heart attack and Sridevi Kapoor is no more. It is actually a Black Day for Indian Cinema as we have lost the 1st female superstar of Bollywood. The bubbly actress who gave millions of hearts a reason to laugh, a reason to love, a reason to smile, a reason to hope and an equally significant reason to dance.
A lot many Bollywood actors and actresses remembered sharing the screen or a laugh with Sridevi at some point in life after her demise. Hrithik Roshan, burst out his grief by confessing how nervous he was while he was to shoot his first ever acting scene with Sridevi and how she made him comfortable.
Amir Khan tweeted his message sighing at the big loss that Indian cinema has to bear. He mentioned himself to be one among the million fans that Sridevi has, showing his respect and love for her.
Even Akshay Kumar expressed his shock. He went back in time when he had the good fortune of sharing screen space with her.
Kajol too was stunned at the untimely demise of Sridevi. She referred to her as a school in herself as she has been the secret teacher to Kajol as well.
Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra, who are playful and vibrant actors, grew up on her movies. Their tweets reflect the admiration they had for Sridevi.
Shilpa Shetty was in tears when she woke up to this horrible news. She confessed that Sridevi was the reason why she joined acting. Sridevi's hugs, love, and humor kept her going on all this while.
Farhan Akhtar got nostalgic about his first job in 1990 on the sets of Lamhe. He saw the legendary actor creating her incredible magic on screen for the very first time in the song 'Megha Re Megha'.
Likewise, the list is endless.
Who would believe that the lady who started off her acting career as a child artist at the age of 4, made debut with the film Julie (1965) and entertained us in continuously until her last film MOM (2017), having a total of 5 Filmfare awards to her credit is no longer going to be there?
Who would believe that 2013 Padma Sri Awardee Sri Devi, who has ruled millions of hearts for over 5 decades has passed away?
And since nobody can believe that we have lost her, she will live forever. Because legends do. Because legacies do. Because stars do.
May her soul rest in peace.
