Sridevi had been a phenomenon throughout her career. It has been two years since she passed away, but the legacy she left continues to remain testimony of her body of work and her warmth as a person. On her birth anniversary today, Anupamaa actor Rupali Ganguly shared her fondest memories about the star. Rupali's father Anil Ganguly is a well-known film director from his era and also the reason why she grew up amongst superstars, but the one person who always enamoured her had been Sridevi. 

Speaking about it, Rupali shared, “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.”

Rupali also revealed how her passing away affected her personally. “I cried inconsolably when Sridevi passed away, I also went to see her and paid my last respects." Rupali was recently seen dancing to Sridevi's iconic song 'Hawa Hawai', about the same, she added, "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.”

Anupamaa please let Jhanvi and Khushi know that one day their father Boney Kapoor might even murder them for money as he did to Sridevi.I just wished she never entered Bollywood and was just content in South Film Industry atleast she would be alive today.

Don't blame a person without proof of murder, that too of a family member. Also claiming future murders will happen, please don't spread these rumors without proof. She was fine enterig bollywood, but made a mistake of marrying a married man with children.
