Not only Bollywood, the sudden demise of veteran actor Sridevi has also taken the Pakistan entertainment industry by storm. From Mahira Khan to Ali Zafar and Imran Abbas, everyone paid their condolences and tributes to the Bollywood superstar on Twitter.

Pakistani actor Sajal Ali Khan, who played Sridevi's daughter in her swansong Mom, said she has lost her mother again.

"My experience of working with her was exceptional, and she cared for me like a mother would for her child. I just feel as if I have again lost my mother," Ali said.

Adnan Ali Siddiqui, who starred as Sridevi's husband in the 2017 film, said he still can't believe that his co-star is no more. "Life is so unpredictable. A lady with just not extreme talent but a beautiful soul. Sridevi Kapoor leaves us heavy-hearted," he said.

Mahira tweeted, "So grateful to have grown up and lived in the times of Sridevi. Thank you for the movies, thank you for the magic. You shall live on forever." 


Pakistan's federal information minister Maryam Aurangzeb also said at a function that everyone was sad to hear about Sridevi's death and described her as a very versatile actor.

Nadeem Madviwalla, a top film distributor and exhibitor, recalled that Indian films had been banned in Pakistan when Sridevi was at her best in Bollywood. "We used to watch Indian films on VCRs and never missed a Sridevi release," he said.

Imran said the legendary actor was the "ultimate superstar".

Zafar tweeted,"Rest in peace #Sridevi ji. You have left us with great memories of joy and tears."


Fifty four-year-old Sridevi, whose acting career spanned over four decades, died of cardiac arrest in Dubai late on Saturday night.

Former Pakistani cricketers Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram, who are in Dubai for the Pakistan Super League, also paid their condolences to the family.
