On Saturday, the film industry lost one of its most reverted names when veteran actor Sridevi passed away after suffering from a cardiac arrest in Dubai where she had gone to attend a wedding. Once the news broke, several stars took to Twitter and mourned the loss of a fine artiste and a good friend. Now, veteran actor-director T Rajender too has reacted to the sad incident. In a heartfelt speech, he said that a person like Sridevi can never be forgotten. He added that she completely changed the world of Tamil cinema and added a new dimension to it.
“A lot of people are born, everybody has to die. A lot of people are forgotten after they die. But there are some people who can never be forgotten even after their death. Accepting their death is so hard but we have to accept it because everybody dies. One such legend is Sridevi. I am her big fan and her works will always be remembered. Her Mayil character is unforgettable and her death is something that is a big wound for the industry. She has acted in many films and made so many records. She is a Devathai who turned the entire Tamil Thirai Ulagam upside down. The tears of all her fans will roll down and form a sea,” added TR.
In case you did not know, before conquering Bollywood, Sridevi found footing in South cinema and starred in successful films such as Moondram Pirai, 16 Vayathinile, and Bobbili Puli to name a few. She worked alongside likes of NTR, Kamal Haasan, and Rajinikanth and proved that she belonged to the big league.
Her last South film was Puli. In it, she played the role of a queen and impressed her die-hard fans. However, the film proved to be a commercial failure.
