“The people in Pakistan are going to miss Sridevi as much as the people in India,” Says Adnan Siddiqui

“Sridevi was  not only  a great actor , she was also a beautiful soul: humble down-to-earth always smiling. I remember when I met her in Delhi for the first time  on the sets of Mom,Boney Saab introduced  me to her. She joined her hands together and  greeted me warmly and asked me to make myself comfortable.

I was  bowled over. How down-to-earth she was,an actress who had done 300 films and is known  all over the world, the  humility with which she greeted me left me speechless. I was so so overwhelmed by her hospitality and warmth. I will never forget  the kind of welcome I was  given in India.Sridevi and Boney Saab were fabulous hosts. No one can equal her on screen. But more than that she’s a great human being.I am getting calls from Pakistan, India, the  US and   the UK condoling her death.I wish I was in India to be with Srideviji’s family. But I can’t. I pray for strength to her family. It’s a  huge huge loss. I am in  Dubai.

I was invited for Srideviji’s nephew’s wedding. She was there smiling 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  night(Feb  17). I just couldn’t bear to see him looking so devastated.He was really broken. I am really saddened. I was honoured to have  worked  with her in Mom. At  the same time 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.”
