|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.
