Sridevi has left us all, she has gone forever and all we are left with are the innumerable memories she has given us through the years. Her genuine smile, sparkling eyes and spectacular acting will surely be us for years to come. For all those who know her closely, know that she was a beautiful person and always inspired people around her. It is a tough time for the Kapoors.
Sridevi last breathed in Dubai on 25th February due to accidental drowning in a bathtub. Her mortal remains reached day before yesterday at the Mumbai airport. Her last rites were performed yesterday at the Celebrations Sports Club. Almost every member of the Bollywood industry and hundreds of Sridevi’s fans came out to pay respects to their favorite actress.
Sridevi’s sudden demise has shocked us all but what more has left us disturbed is the insensitivity of media we got to see during these days. Ever since reports of Sridevi’s death came out, media came out and started building new stories each day. This further upset everyone and even the Kapoors have now sent out a message to the media.
All the members of the Kapoor family, right from Sonam Kapoor to Sanjay Kapoor, took to their Instagram handles and posted this special message. In the message, they shared that it is a tough time for their family and they want everyone to support them.
Here is the entire message:
The past few days have been trying times for us as a family. Today, particularly, has been one of the hardest. We laid to rest a beautiful soul who has gone too soon.
She leaves behind a legacy that is unique. Her talent was undeniable, her beauty unmatched and her ability to connect with the audience was legendary. Sri had the same connect with her family as well.
The one thing that helped us all get through these last few days, was the amazing amount of love and support from everyone — be it her many colleagues, to her innumerable fans, her caring friends and loving family, from across the country and the world.
This outpouring of love is the memory that we would like Khushi and Janhvi to have of their mother… a woman who was loved unquestionably by everyone. Let us all who loved Sri, envelope her two little ones, her life, as she often called them, with as much or more love than we gave Sri so that they can live their lives ahead with a little less ache in their hearts.
Let us help them remember their mother fondly, with that beloved twinkle in her eyes, and help them build a life and be what Sri had dreamt for them.
To the members of the media, we ask that you respect the privacy of the family and allow us the space to grieve. Sri lived her life with dignity and we implore, that you give her the same respect.
