Subhash Ghai on Sridevi: The uncrowned queen of acting in all languages in her times
Subhash Ghai, who directed Sridevi in Karma has written a heartfelt note remembering the actress
Filmmaker Subhash Ghai speaks about how Sridevi was the undisputed queen of acting.
"I am deeply grieved for this shocking loss. Sridevi has not been one of the finest actors but the finest actor of Indian cinema since 1985. An introvert by nature, she was electricity with thunder in front of camera. She would shock directors by her each shot taken on her on the sets, may it be dance drama or romance.
"She maintained her dignity and integrity as an actor and person both constantly at any cost in this demanding industry. She was the uncrowned queen of acting in all languages in her times," Ghai said.
"I knew Sridevi as a person for being my friend Boney Kapoor's wife. She was purely a traditional house wife. Great Mother and a perfect host for guests at home . We all loved her with great respect. Best thing in her life I observed that she maintained her dignity and integrity as an actor and person both constantly at any cost in this demanding industry," added the filmmaker.
Her work on screen will be written in text books of acting. May it be her first film Sadma or Mom the latest. God bless her soul peace.
The sudden demise of the first female superstar of Bollywood, Sridevi left the entire Bollywood and her fans in a deep state of shock. The entire country is mourning her tragic death. The 54-year-old actress breathed her last in Dubai on Saturday after a cardiac arrest.
