Veteran actor Kamal Haasan was one of Sridevi’s first co-stars and shared a lovely rapport with her. He had starred with her in classics like Moondram Pirai, and impressed fans with his crackling chemistry with her. As such, not surprisingly, he was one of the first stars to react to her untimely demise. Earlier today, he said that he would really miss Sridevi as he had seen her evolve as a person.
“Have witnessed Sridevi’s life from an adolescent teenager to the magnificeint 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 said.
Now, Haasan has offered his condolences to the entire family. In a video message, the star said that Sridevi had managed to earn her stardom through years of hard work and hence, richly deserved it. He added that she learnt every day and grew as a person. Haasan also recalled that her dedication matched his and hence, the two were fond of each other.

While addressing, the lady star’s family, a visibly sad Haasan said that his went out to Boney Kapoor and the kids.
“My deepest condolence to the family, Boney and the children. Hold on, hang in there, Boney. I am sorry,” added the actor.
In case you did not know, Sridevi died last night after suffering a cardiac arrest in Dubai where she had gone to attend a family wedding.
During her successful career, she worked with a host of big stars—right from Haasan to Vijay—and proved her mettle as an actor. She ruled not only South cinema but Bollywood as well. Her most notable Hindi films are Chandini and Mr. India. Her last release was MOM which opened to a good response at the box office.
