Sridevi’s death was shocker for entire country, the actress drowned in bathtub in UAE hotel where she was there for a wedding. Her death shocked Alia Bhatt entirely and after listening to the news she broke down, in an interview with Filmfare magazine Alia revealed what happened when she heard about the demise of Sridevi, “Her passing away was devastating for me, like it was for everyone. I was in a restaurant when I heard the news. After that I just couldn’t eat. I broke down and couldn’t stop crying”, Alia said.
Sridevi was an admirer of Alia’s work and on many occasions had praised her performances. Alia said, “What an impact she had on people! She was always so warm and lovely. Kind of turnout on the streets during her last rites. She went like a goddess! That was heart-warming.”
