My first job in 1990 was on ‘Lamhe’ and this song ‘Megha re Megha’ was the very first time I saw this legendary actor create her incredible magic on screen. From Sadma to Chalbaaz, from Mr.India to Chandni, it was impossible to take your eyes off her when she appeared on screen. A true star. A gifted actor. A woman with tremendous dignity. Gone too soon. RIP Sridevi. Sad sad day.
Shocked beyond words to hear about the sad and untimely demise of #Sridevi. A dream for many, had the good fortune of sharing screen space with her long ago and witnessed her continued grace over the years. Thoughts and prayers with the family. RIP ??

Indeed it a massive loss to the Bollywood industry. No one could resist her charm if they have followed the filmography of the actress.
Neither can they believe the shocking news that the morning brought in or resist a tear or two.
Good Bye “Chandani” of Bollywood, we would miss you. RIP.
