From Karan Johar to Priya Prakash, Tributes Pour in For Sridevi
Fans remember Sridevi, the superstar.
An actor is not only known for the person they are, but for the many characters they play. A good actor embodies the role they are given and an excellent actor leaves a bit of themselves with the role they play, making it come alive.
According to co-actors and fellow artistes, Sridevi was the latter.
She would work hard to bring her characters alive, make them more believable and therefore more memorable.
Now that she is gone, fans, friends, colleagues, contemporaries and all those who have been touched by her many onscreen avatars as well as her own personality, fondly remember how she had made a difference in their lives.
Rani Mukherji Remembers Her ‘Maasi’
For me it’s the most painful thing I have dealt with after my dad’s passing away. And her face is coming in front of me again and again. The love she had for me was so tremendous and intense that I feel somewhere I have lost a guiding light in my life. She has been my inspiration personally and professionally. She was very close to me. She was like my ‘maasi’. She was someone I looked up to. I just feel there is one more person I have lost in my life I loved and who loved me back.Rani Mukerji

Equal rights activist Harish Iyer, who works for the rights of LGBTQ community, shared his lifelong connect with the beloved superstar and the experience of sharing the same stage with her on Satyameva Jayate, in this touching tribute.
I cannot forget Chalbaaz and Chandni. While I allied with Anju’s fears, I thought my inner voice was the energetic Manju. I was both effervescent and challenged when I was trying to understand what I was going through. I was just 10 and being raped every second week. I felt like Anju, bounced like Manju and wanted to be my own rebel full of emotional energy like Chandni.Harish Iyer
