Reminiscing about working with Sridevi, Aftab said, “Sridevi ji was a complete actor in every way – the way she immersed herself in her characters and her classy demeanor off sets. She was like the ultimate professional who was respectful, polite and kind. She was truly a legend. I feel very grateful that I got to work with her in some of her most iconic films like ‘Mr India’ and ‘Chaalbaaz’.”
While ‘Mr India’ also starred Anil Kapoor in the lead role, ‘Chaalbaaz’ starred Rajinikanth and Sunny Deol in lead roles.
Sridevi, along with her husband Boney Kapoor and daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor had gone to Dubai to attend the wedding ceremony of Mohit Marwah in 2018 where she breathed her last. The actress reportedly passed away due to accidental drowning in the bathtub of her hotel room.
The iconic actress was last seen in Ravi Udyawar’s ‘Mom’ that also starred Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna in lead roles. The film and her performance received positive reviews from the audience and the critics alike.
Even today, Sridevi is considered to be one of the finest actresses to have worked in the Hindi film industry.
