Woman's day is everyday!!! But today I'll remember a woman who gave me a childhood joy like no other! I lost touch with her when I grew up but the fat child in me had a silent approval of India's first female superstar! My mom will always b my biggest hero but this woman's day is for that hero who first showed me ' strong women support women( even if she is much younger) #ripsridevi #ladysuperstar
Sridevi had co-starred with Ekta Kapoor's father Jeetendra in 15 films, including the blockbuster film Himmatwala, Tohfa, Majaal, Aag Aur Shola and Ghar Sansaar. "Sridevi was one of my closest co-stars and we did 15 movies together. She was an actor par excellence. What was even more admirable about her was her dedication to the craft - she would keep rehearsing a scene until she was fully satisfied with it. I had deep admiration for her discipline towards her work," Jeetendra told mid-day. She died a day before Himmatwala's 35th anniversary.
Sridevi is survived by husband Boney Kapoor, daughters Janhvi and Khushi. Janhvi's debut film Dhadak releases this year. She turned 21 on March 6.
