Veteran star Sridevi may have left us too soon but her incredible work in Indian cinema has left an indelible impression. The actress not only regaled the hearts of middle-aged audience but cemented a whole new fan base when she made her comeback as Shashi Godbole with Gauri Shinde's English Vinglish in 2012. The superstar's untimely death last year came as a jolt to many and now almost more than a year later, her closest friends are reminscing tales of the star. Director Gauri Shinde, husband Boney Kapoor, Deepika Padukone came together for the book launch of 'Sridevi: The Eternal Screen Goddess' by Satyarth Nayak. 

Recalling her time while shooting English Vinglish, Gauri said, "I enjoyed the whole process of working with her. We got along so well, we understood each other so well. I think what connected us was our ability to express ourselves through anything but work. She had such a great sense of humour, which was why she could be so funny on screen." What she loved the most, Gauri added, "So it was so fascinating to watch someone just transform in a few minutes from this smiling person in private to this diva on screen." 

The director also revealed that she had another film with Sridevi in mind but the actress left even before Gauri said pack up. Speaking about their first meeting, an emotional Gauri said, "By the end of that first date, I had a feeling that both of us would want to go on our second date. There was instant chemistry, instant love and it is rare and it was too special."
