During a recently-held conclave, veteran actor Kamal Haasan opened up about his rapport with the late Sridevi and said that she was like a sister to him. He added that the star was highly talented and possessed a remarkable range as an actor.
“I met Sridevi when she was 15-16 years old. Sometimes in a family, a brother and sister, during Gokul Ashtami or Krishna Ashtami, are dressed as Lord Krishna and Radha. That is what I feel about Sridevi. We were siblings but were made to do romantic things, which we laughed at,” he added.
In case you were not aware, Sri and Haasan made a terrific pair on the big screen and did numerous hit films together. Their most noteworthy films include Sadma and 16 Vayathinile. The two had tremendous respect for each other and were good friends. As such, not surprisingly, Haasan was one of the first stars to send out his condolences when news of Sridevi’s death broken on February 24. In his heartfelt tweet, he had said that he was deeply pained by her demise.
“Have witnessed Sridevi’s life from an adolescent teenager to the magnificent lady she became. Her stardom was well deserved. Many happy moments with her flash through my mind including the last time I met her. Sadma’s lullaby haunts me now. We’ll miss her,” he had said.
He had also conveyed his condolences to the family in a heartfelt message and added that she had worked hard for her success.
“My deepest condolence to the family, Boney and the children. Hold on, hang in there, Boney. I am sorry,” he had added in the video.
On a related note, Haasan is currently concentrating on his political commitments and trying to connect with the common man. On the film front, he currently has Vishwaroopam 2 and Indian 2 in his kitty.
