The diva breathed her last on Saturday in Dubai after suffering a cardiac arrest. She was 54.

Sridevi’s strong screen presence, mesmerising dancing skills and flawless acting made her the empress of Bollywood in the 80s and 90s. The actress’ last outing on the silver screen was Mom, where she played of the role a mother.
Pakistani actress Sajal Ali who played Sridevi’s on-screen daughter in the thriller posted a heart-breaking message for the ageless beauty. She shared a picture with the Sadma actress and captioned it as ,''Lost my mom again’'.
Sajal who is a popular actress in Pakistan lost her mother during the shoot of Mom and it was reported that Sridevi comforted her.
"Sajal was very close to her mother, who she lost recently. It shattered the young girl. Sri took Sajal under her wings after that tragedy and treated her like her own. After the tragedy, Sajal called Sri from her hometown in Pakistan and broke down, saying the whole experience was too close to her to be treated just as a film", a source had told Deccan Chronicle.
Sajal had last year shared a video where Sridevi can be seen getting emotional and saying, ‘’Sajal, I Love you bacha’’. The Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hay captioned the video as ‘’ I love you Shrimaa’’.
