Never known anyone who was so painfully shy, so quiet off screen, who just transformed into a force of nature when the cameras came on. She was an interviewer’s nightmare, but the movie-buff’s dream. You will be missed, Sridevi. Thank you for the movies.— Rajeev Masand (@RajeevMasand) February 24, 2018
The loss of #Sridevi is a big deal for Bollywood but also an entire generation, like mine, that grew up with her movies. She went supernova in the 80s. She had charm, personality, wit and range. MR INDIA remains a classic. So sad that she passed so young.— Wajahat "Tough Guy" Ali (@WajahatAli) February 24, 2018
