In her recent interview with Filmfare Middle East, Deepika Padukone has expressed her memories with late legendary actress Sri Devi. Deepika also revealed that Sridevi was like a mother figure to her.
Deepika Padukone said:
“My relationship with Sridevi was beyond the movies. She was like a mother figure to me. After every single film of mine after Love Aaj Kal, I would get a call from Boney Kapoor and after he congratulated me, Sri would come on the line. I developed a sense of familiarity and comfort with her. A few days before she left for Ras al Khaimah in the UAE, she spoke to me".
Deepika was amongst the first celebrities to reach Anil Kapoor’s residence to meet the bereaved family. She also flew in from Bengaluru to attend Sridevi’s condolence meet as well.
