Today is Sridevi's birth anniversary. Her fans and her family still cannot get over the shocking and untimely demise of the Chandni of Bollywood. She had fans not just in India but across the globe. The actress is still a favourite of many. Recently, television actress Rupali Ganguly shot Sridevi's iconic number, Hawa Hawai for her show, Anupamaa. The actress recalled meeting Sridevi twice, once on the sets of the late actress's film and once during an award function.
Rupali Ganguly recalled her meeting with the English Vinglish actress to an entertainment portal, saying, "I have met many superstars at our place and parties also but I have never taken a photograph with anyone. Sridevi is the only actress with whom I have clicked a picture. Once I met her on the set of Joshilay and I remember she touched my head and I refused to wash my hair for a long time! A couple of years back, at an award function, I met her again. I was so awestruck that I couldn’t say a word. But, then gradually I went up to her and asked her for a selfie and also requested if I can hug her. I also told her about my acting career and then she said yes I have seen you in Aatish’s show (Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai). After hearing that, I was on cloud nine."
She went on to talk about the Mr India song she shot for Anupamaa saying that if the audience compares her with the veteran actress she would take it as the biggest compliment of her career. "Recently I shot the iconic song Hawa Hawai from Mr India in Anupamaa and I can't thank Rajan Shahi enough to give me such an opportunity. I have danced in that song for so many times. If audiences are comparing me with her I will take this as a biggest compliment of my acting career," the Sarabhai vs Sarabhai actress said.
She went on to talk about Sridevi's death and revealed that she went to pay respects to the actress as well. "I cried inconsolably when Sridevi passed away, I also went to see her and paid my last respects."
