A beautiful soul, heartbeat of millions, a timeless beauty, a loving partner and a doting mother of two young daughters, Sridevi was laid to rest in peace forever yesterday in Mumbai. Her millions of fans, family and the entire film fraternity, everyone is in utter shock. It is hard to digest that she has left for heavenly abode.
Life is unpredictable and we all know that! Death is the only truth, we know that as well. But to face it in real life and witnessing an untimely death of a loved one is one thing that no one is ever prepared for. Same happened with Sridevi’s colossal fans and her loving family.
Yesterday, her family held a condolence meet for industry friends and fans. Sridevi’s mortal remains were kept in a glass casket at the Celebrations Sports Ground. Fans and entire film fraternity turned up in large numbers to pay respect. Draped in her favourite red and golden Kanjeevaram sari, the timeless beauty was then taken to crematorium in a flower-laden truck and then laid to rest in peace forever. Thousands of fans swarmed the roads in Mumbai to catch her last glimpse and proved her magnum fandom!
Sonam Kapoor, who is Sridevi’s family member, was also present at the condolence meet and stood firmly with her grieving family. In a group picture posted by several media houses, the actress was seen holding back her tears in the moment of sheer grief. But amidst this all, massive crowd went berserk and surrounded Sonam. It got hard for her to even walk and then she obviously lost her cool! The actress began shouting on people and a video of that moment is going viral on Internet.
Also, as we reported earlier, big names like Aishwarya Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Karisma Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Manish Malhotra, Javed Akhtar, Deepika Padukone, etc also attended the condolence meet. Sadness reflected on each and everyone’s face. But in some pictures doing rounds on Internet, actress Jacqueline Fernandez can be seen smiling. This didn’t go down well with Twitterati, who then trolled her mercilessly.
Well, going by her bubbly nature, we wonder if it is apt to shame her mercilessly! After all, she came to the meet to pay her last respect and has also posted a musical tribute to iconic Sridevi on Instagram.
