In an interview with Zoom, Bollywood's ace mehendi artist, Veena Nagda shared Sridevi’s favourite mehendi design that she used to apply every Karva Chauth. He stated, "Sridevi ji used to love the round mehendi design. She kept it simple and round always. And, she used to apply mehendi on every Karva Chauth without fail."
On Sridevi’s demise, Veena shared a picture of Sridevi flaunting her mehendi, and wrote, “I am very heartbroken to hear about Sriji I have always applied mehendi to her on every karwa chauth She was such a beautiful person with pure soul. Life is very unpredictable. May her soul rest in peace”.
In a throwback interview, Sridevi talked about the Karva Chauth celebrations and had said, “I have been celebrating Karva Chauth for almost 20 years. Earlier, we would go to my mother-in-law’s place, but after my father-in-law passed away, we have been going to Anil Kapoor’s house.” Talking about her sarees, she said, “I dress up for the occasion by wearing bright colours and heavy jewellery. I almost dress like a bride. It feels good to pray for your husband.”
In an interview post-Sridevi’s demise, her devar and devraani, Anil Kapoor spoke about how much he and his wife, Sunita Kapoor misses Sridevi. He shared, “Sunita and Sridevi had a great bond. She really really misses her a lot. They would often speak to each other, Sunita looked up to Sridevi, a lot, a lot. As a matter of fact, the day Sri passed away, Sunita spoke to her twice. Of course, she misses her a lot. And I have worked with her, she was not only a great co-star. We have done some wonderful films together which will remain memorable. We shared a great friendship, she was a part of the family, she was a family member, she was a friend also.” (Also Read: Arjun Kapoor's Changing Relationship With Janhvi And Khushi Kapoor, From 'Non-Existent' To 'Perfect')
