I’m in shock, commented Armeena Khan.
Journalist Wajahat Ali, however, wrote about how Sridevi and her acting resonated with an entire generation.
The loss of #Sridevi is a big deal for Bollywood but also an entire generation, like mine, that grew up with her movies. She went supernova in the 80s. She had charm, personality, wit and range. MR INDIA remains a classic. So sad that she passed so young.
