Rani Mukerji fondly remembers Sridevi: I deeply miss her
Sridevi breathed her last in February this year, leaving an entire nation devastated. Rani Mukerji, who was a fan of the legendary actress just like millions of others, cannot get over the loss.
"I grew up, became an actor to the time that she loved my work, so it was really like that kind of connection and I deeply miss her right now. I absolutely used to love watching Sridevi's films, just the sparkle in her eyes, like a charisma on screen and she made everything look so effortless," Rani said on a podcast.
Reminiscing her childhood memories of Sridevi, Rani added, "I remember telling my mom that I wanted to go and watch her and I remember going in my school uniform, with my backpack and just watching her and when she used to descend from her make-up van, she used to be like a queen because there used to be this two-hour lunch break and no one could go and disturb her, it was very different then."
The only time Rani and Sridevi have worked together is in a special song in Bombay Talkies (2013). However, they had been friends for several years.
Sridevi died after accidentally drowning in her hotel bathtub, her death certificate revealed. The actress worked in over 300 films across several languages in her career spanning five decades. She was last seen on the big screen in Ravi Udyawar's Mom, for which she posthumously received the National Award for Best Actress.
