|Sridevi with Subash Ghai|
Sridevi worked with me in Karma in 1985. A quiet lady with bundle of talent. A pure magical screen actor of India. We can never get another Sridevi again on screen. I am deeply grieved at this shocking loss. She has not been one of the finest actors but the finest actor of Indian cinema since 1985. Introvert by nature she was electricity with thunder in front of camera. She would shock directors with each shot taken on the sets. Whether it was dance, drama or romance. She was the uncrowned queen of acting. I knew her as a person for being my friend Boney’s wife. She was a purely traditional homemaker. A great mother and a perfect host for guests. We all loved her with great respect. The best thing in her life, I observed, was she maintained her dignity and integrity as an actor and as a person constantly at any cost in this demanding industry. Her on-screen work will be written in textbooks of acting. Be it Sadma or Mom, her last work. God bless her soul.

I saw her last month and we are not prone to showing emotions but we both hugged each her. The Sadma song rings in my ears now and it’s a great lullaby for this talented and beautiful Sridevi. She had a happy life. My deepest condolences to the family, her children and I know how much she loved her daughters. I found both mother and daughter cuddling each other and I made fun of her. Poor child is going to miss all that.”
