She was gorgeous, resplendent and an eternal beauty. It’s been more than 15 days since legendary actress, Sridevi’s demise and yet her pictures and videos, old and new, send a wave of happiness down our body. Her one picture surfaces somewhere and it’s all smiles thereon.
Along the same lines, we got out hands on a very similar picture of Sridevi which was clicked at Mohit Marwah and Antara Motiwala’s wedding. And the picture (below) is with none other than fashionista Sonam Kapoor’s mom, Sunita Kapoor. Seriously, looking at this superstar smiling is making every netizen smile. She is emanating a charm, a glory, not seen in any other actress.
On February 24, 2018, the world stood still in grief when it was confirmed that Sridevi has passed away in Dubai. Millions of her fans, her family and friends could not believe the news. But as they say, what’s written is written. After 3 days of examination, Sridevi’s mortal remains were brought to Mumbai and her funeral was attended by thousands of people. Amid full state honours and clad in tricolour, Srivdei was cremated on February 28, 2018. (Also Read: Sridevi And Boney Kapoor's Love Story)
Clearly, beyond her fans and relatives, her immediate family members were heart-wrenched more than anyone else- husband, Boney Kapoor and two daughters- Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. Just yesterday i.e. March 09, 2018, Boney Kapoor, brother, Anil Kapoor and designer Manish Malhotra performed the last rites of Sridevi by immersing her ashes in the Ganges in Haridwar. As per reports, Boney Kapoor broke down in the middle of veneration. Boney specifically chose Haridwar as it was Sridevi's wish to return to the place and Boney fulfilled her wish.
Earlier, Janhvi Kapoor's heartfelt letter to her late mother moved everyone to tears. This is what she wrote, "I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man whose entire being revolved around her and her two children who are all that remains of their love. I and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love," her post read.
Earlier, as per a report in SpotboyE, Janhvi had written a note for her mother, Sridevi, years back, and this is what she penned down, “Dear Mom, growing up hearing about your aura, dedication, sincerity and inspirational grit to be the best and achieve the most always made me wish I was present to witness it all. Through all that you have done in your life, you have made me the proudest daughter in the world, and I love you the most. Your daughter, Janhvi.”
Doesn’t Janhvi’s words stick so true to Sridevi's smiling picture with Sonam Kapoor’s mom? Undeniably, Sridevi’s “aura, dedication, sincerity and inspirational grit to be the best.”
