Mumbai: Fans, Bollywood stars and celebrities from various fields are finding it hard to recover after hearing about the untimely demise of legendary actress Sridevi in Dubai on Sunday.
The actress was renowned for being a brilliant package of beauty and a powerhouse performer.
Be it Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Sridevi worked with some of the biggest names of the country in some of the most memorable films of all time.
Rishi Kapoor was another of her colleague, featuring together in two of her best works, ‘Chandni’ and ‘Nagina.’
Kapoor had expressed his shock, sharing how ‘Chandni was gone forever’ and there would be no more ‘Moonlit’ nights on Sunday.

The veteran actor, who is known for his temper, however, lost his cool later in the day on the media coverage of the shocking news.
Kapoor was furious with TV channels referring to Sridevi ‘as a mere body’ while reporting about the arrival of her mortal remains, and gave them a piece of his mind of Twitter, slamming them for how their individuality suddenly 'gets lost.'
How has Sridevi all of a sudden become the “body”? All television channels reporting “the body will be brought to Mumbai in the night!” Suddenly your individuality gets lost and becomes a mere body??— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) February 25, 2018
Sridevi’s mortal remains will be brought on Monday to the country and according to reports, the autopsy and other formalities have been completed and funeral is reportedly scheduled for 11am.
