“I’ve just returned from the prayer meeting. She was looking like a radiant beautiful bride…I almost felt like she was acting for a film and she would soon wake up…I’ve known Boney Kapoor and Sridevi for many years.
While the entire nation is coming to grips with Sridevi’s untimely death, Bollywood’s dream girl Hema Malini says there’s a lesson to be learnt for all of us.
Hema malini says Sridevi was very close to her and Dharamji (her husband). “When I woke up at 2.30 am on Sunday night and checked my phone. There was a barrage of messages telling me Sridevi was no more. I thought it was a prank. But unfortunately it was not.”
Dharamji (worked with Sridevi in a few films) is shattered; he cried like a baby when he heard of her death. Aisa kaise ho sakta hai? (How can this happen?) He kept asking.
How can this happen? That’s what we are all wondering too.
And there is a lesson to be learnt for all of us, says Hema malini.
“Be kind to everyone. Live life truthfully and compassionately. And treat every day like the last day of your life.”
“To first lose her and then to be subjected to that whole experience of getting her back to Mumbai from Dubai…My God! Boney is shattered beyond the limits of grief.
