Bollywood fans work up to a shocking new today. Veteran actress Sridevi passed away in the wee hours of February 25, leaving a void in Bollywood that can never be filled. The untimely death has left everyone in disbelief. The actress was recently at the Mohit Marwah – Antara Motiwala wedding and was being written about for her sartorial choices. She looked ethereal in Manish Malhotra ensembles and made heads turn. And now, to know that she is no more is unbelievable. The actress is one of the rare yesteryear Bollywood queens who made a successful second innings in the industry.
First English Vinglish and then Mom, Sridevi sure knew how to pick her roles and give it her best. And before her sudden demise, she had been prepping to come back on the big screen with yet another film. India.com had exclusively informed readers back in October last year about the actress’ plans. She was all set to reunite with one of her favourite directors – Gauri Shinde. Our source told us, “The script is ready and Sri has loved it. Once again, just like ‘English Vinglish’, it is a strong character that will be extremely relatable and something that will inspire women.” The official announcement was to be made soon and Sri was ready to get on the sets post this wedding in the family. The film was supposed to be released early next year is what we hear.

Apart from this new film, she also shot for a special song in Shah Rukh Khan – Aanand L Rai’s Zero and now perhaps, that’s the last we will see her on the big screen. We are still unable to cope up with the news and the shock of losing such a talented, power house actress is overwhelmingly heartbreaking. We wish strength to Sridevi’s family and friends in this difficult time.
