The death of the legendary Sridevi came as a blow to all her friends, fans and co-stars. Nagarujuna who worked with her in Telugu and Hindi films says Sridevi’s death served up a lesson to him. “I still can’t believe she is gone. Life is so unpredictable. The suddenness of Sridevi’s death has made me appreciate my loved ones more. It’s important to live every moment positively and beautifully.”
Nagarjuna who was as shocked as the rest of the nation by Sridevi’s sudden demise, says her contribution to cinema cannot be undermined. “She was equally important to Hindi and South cinema. Her contribution to cinema in the South whether it was Malayalam, Telugu or Tamil, cannot be undermined. In Telugu I can vouch for her professionalism and talent. Sridevi could do anything.”
“Her level of professionalism was to be seen to be believed. When she did Ram Gopal Varma’s Govinda Govinda with me she was full of fun and enjoyment in front of the camera. The minute it was switched she went back into her shell. She was an astonishing artiste. I will miss her for as long as I work,” says Nag emotionally.
