The comments section of her posts were filled up with comments from Instagram users. "Ekdam se look like Sridevi ji," read a comment. "She resembles Sridevi Ma'am," added another.

Dipali often recreates iconic scenes and dialogues of Sridevi on her Instagram Reels. See some of the posts here:
Sridevi, who was often addressed as Bollywood's "first female superstar," died in Dubai in 2018, where she attended a family wedding. The actress' last film was MOM (2017), which was also backed by her husband Boney Kapoor, for which she was posthumously awarded the National Film Award for the Best Actress in 2018.
Sridevi acted in 300 films in a career spanning over 5 decades. Her last onscreen appearance was in the 2018 film Zero, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif. The segment featuring Sridevi was shot way before her death.
Janhvi and Khushi are Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's daughters. Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak in 2018 and has starred in several projects since then. Khushi studies in New York and aspires to be an actress like her sister.
