Veteran actress Sridevi’s demise came as a big shock to everyone. The first female superstar of Bollywood died of accidental drowning in Dubai. Actress Priyanka Chopra, who was very close to the iconic star, penned down a heartfelt tribute to her in TIME magazine. She stated that the veteran actress changed the course of Indian cinema and made audiences breathless with her performances.
Priyanka wrote in Time, “She owned every frame of every film she was in—without the need of a male co-star, bringing in audiences and setting the box office alight, firmly on her own shoulders.”
Priyanka called Sridevi her childhood and revealed that she was one of the reasons the lady became an actor. She recalled the time when she came to know about her demise. She wrote, “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.”
Priyanka wrote about the last memory she had of the veteran actress when she met her last year in December. The Quantico actress stated that Sridevi tightly hugged her and talked about her two daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.
She wrote, “But angels don’t pass on. They just shine brighter in another realm—so I will always look out for her in the sky.”
Priyanka concluded the letter calling herself the forever fan of the actress.
