Sridevi celebrated life in her performances and we forever celebrate her: Adnan Siddiqui

She will never be forgotten, no matter what. When I first got introduced to her, she stood up from her seat. For us, living in Pakistan, she was a heroine who ruled the screen like a queen. Just imagine: People from everywhere, Pakistan, America, the UK and other parts, have been sending me condolence messages. It’s such a mixed feeling for me. Sridevi consoled her saying: “I’m like your mother”. And who could believe that she would be no more in four days. During the shoot, she took care of Sajal like her baby. Sajal Ali and I (both were Sridevi’s co-actors in her last movie, Mom) were the ones from Pakistan who knew her and the family well. The entire nation must be so sad. I feel honoured that I shared the screen with her in her last film. Sridevi was excited about Janhvi’s debut and putting in a lot of effort to support her. Related News

Sajal’s mother passed away during the filming of Mom. In spite of being a legend who was doing her 300th movie, she was very humble. At the same time, I’m sad that she is no more. He was crying like a baby. Even as she greeted me warmly and later introduced me to her family, she said: “Itni der kardi aapne aane mein (You are so late).” Those words are still ringing my mind. When called Boney-sahab, he insisted that I should go for the wedding. I would really want to visit India for her funeral. I assumed I would be late for it. At present, I’m in Dubai and, last night, I met Boney-saab (Boney Kapoor). She was looking gorgeous. Both, she and her husband were great hosts. He added that Sridevi had not met me after the movie and was waiting for me. (As told to Alaka Sahani)

Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui talks about his Mom co-star and late Bollywood actor Sridevi. Four days ago, I was at the wedding of Mohit Marwah (nephew of Boney Kapoor and Sridevi). For Sajal, Sridevi-sahiba was like a mother. She was as loved in Pakistan as she was in India. I have been thinking about all the support she extended to us in India.
