Prayer meet of Sridevi was held in Chennai (her hometown) on 11 March and it was attended by the entire Kapoor family and Marwah’s as well. Many film celebrities from south Indian film industry visited the meet of legendary actress including Thala Ajith who arrived with his wife Shalini Ajith. Ajith came to offer the condolences for the actress who was certainly a pan-Indian star and one of the first of all times. Sridevi started her career at the age of 4 with Tamil films and after working for 15 hours she moved to Hindi film industry.
Sridevi has worked in all the major film industries of India including Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. She did all that work in the first 10 years of her career and did not dwell as much in regional films after she made her mark in the Hindi films and spent 2 decades of sheer super stardom before she gave up her career at he pinnacle due to the birth of her first child. Sridevi quit acting in 1997 and only re-joined the silver screen back in 2012 with her wonderful film ‘English Vinglish’.
Many other stars came for the prayer meet and some of them could not make it for the funeral due to their schedules. Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan arrived at Anil Kapoor’s house in Mumbai even before the funeral to pay their respects to the actress who has worked with them both. Ajith though could not make it in Mumbai and hence eh went to meet the family in Chennai as he himself stays there. Sridevi’s death news came as a shock to everyone because she was an active working lady plus the cause of her death as they say drowning in the bathtub is barely digestible for anyone. All her last riots have been concluded now and the world lost an extremely talented actor in her.
