MUMBAI: Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui, who appeared opposite Sridevi in the movie Mom as her husband said that people in Pakistan are going to miss her as much as the people in India.
“I am in Dubai. I was invited for Sridevi ji’s nephew’s wedding. She was there smiling and dancing, looking as beautiful and healthy as ever. Who would believe that she wouldn’t be here just four days later? I met her husband Boney Kapoor saab last on February 17,” Adnan said.
He also mentioned that he couldn’t bear to see Boney devastated. However, Adnan added that it was an honour for him to have worked with Sridevi in Mom.
The actor also said, “I am truly saddened that she is no more with us and we won’t see her again. The people in Pakistan are going to miss her as much as the people in India. God give strength to her family.”
The actor earlier also expressed his feelings on Instagram where he uploaded a picture of Sridevi smiling with the caption, “Life is so unpredictable. A lady with not just extreme talent but also a beautiful soul, Sri Devi Kapoor leaves us heavy-hearted. So many memories attached while shooting ‘MOM’ with her, just a couple days back I met her at Boney Kapoor’s nephew’s wedding and who would have thought that it is the last time im seeing her. Im still in a state of shock and out of words to describe my feeling! May her soul rests in eternal peace hereafter.”
Sridevi died on Saturday night at around 11 pm after suffering from a cardiac arrest in Dubai.
She was in Dubai to attend the marriage function of Sonam Kapoor’s cousin Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi. Her elder daughter Janhvi, who is due to make her Bollywood debut, was in Mumbai.
Sridevi’s last venture was Mom in 2017 with Sajal Aly and Siddique. She reportedly also has a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film, Zero in which she will be playing herself.
