Mr Haasan, who was also Sridevi's co-star in films such as Sadma, wrote fondly about his association about the late star and how he is now 'haunted' by the melody from their best-known Hindi film together. "Have witnessed Sridevi's life from an adolescent teenager to the magnificent lady she became. Her stardom was well deserved. Many happy moments with her flash through my mind including the last time I met her. Sadma's lullaby haunts me now. We'll miss her," Kamal Haasan tweeted.

Rajinikanth, who also starred with Sridevi in films such as Chaal Baaz, tweeted that he was "shocked and disturbed."

Sridevi died late Saturday after suffering a cardiac arrest. She was in Dubai with husband Boney Kapoor, daughter Khushi and several other family members to attend the wedding of actor Mohit Marwah, a nephew of the Kapoors.

Sridevi began acting at the age of four and 1976's Moondru Mudichu, opposite Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth, was one of her earliest films as an adult lead. She and Mr Haasan co-starred in several films, both Tamil and Hindi - perhaps the most famous of which are the acclaimed Moondram Pirai, for which Mr Haasan received a National Award, and its Bollywood remake Sadma. Their credits together also include 16 Vayathinile and Guru.

Sridevi and Kamal Haasan recently reunited on the red carpet of an award show in Mumbai, where they embraced each other fondly.
