Sridevi Will Call Me, Says Her Old Friend And Famous Fashion Designer Manish Malhotra

The legendary actress Sridevi was honored with National Film Award in the Best Actress category for her performance in the film Mom on April 13. She passed away in February this year and shocked everyone with her sudden death. Ace fashion designer Manish Malhotra collaborated with the celebrated actress on several occasions. In order to honor her, Manish wrote a heartfelt tribute in Vogue India’s April 2018 issue.

 

Manish told that how he met the actress for the first time, he wrote:

“I recall a time when she tried on an outfit, and it didn’t look quite right. Still new to the industry, I refrained from commenting, but my eyes gave my thoughts away. She coerced the truth out of me. In little ways, she made you feel your opinion mattered, especially when it came from a place of truth.”

He revealed that they met during the film shoot of Judaai. He writes,

“But even when she stopped acting, it was on a happy note—she wanted to get married and start a family. During that 15-year gap, from Judaai to when she returned to the silver screen in English Vinglish (2012), we remained in touch. We became particularly close in the last seven years. Whether attending all my shows or being a part of my niece’s wedding, she always returned the love, loyalty and admiration I had for her.”

He went on to write,

 “As a wife, friend and mother to two lovely girls, she always gave her 200percentt. She was, and I think will forever be, Boney ji, Janhvi and Khushi’s best friend. It’s funny how life comes full circle. I used to make little cholis and Ghagras for the girls when they were younger. Now I’m working with Janhvi on her debut. Much like her mother, she’s a bundle of talent and discipline.”

In conclusion, Manish penned,

“She now leaves behind a legacy of exceptional work. I want the world to remember her as who she was—an iconic actor, an exceptional person, someone who had her mind and her heart in the right place. This is the first time I’ve lost someone so close, and it feels surreal. I’d known her for 28 years. We were at a wedding together and then, out of nowhere, her sister Srilatha was handing me a silk sari for her funeral. I spoke to her the night she passed away. We talked about everything under the sun, from Janhvi’s film, how beautiful Khushi looked at the wedding to even what she had eaten earlier that day. Even now, so many days later, I still expect my phone to ring, and to hear her discuss an outfit or a project which we can work on together.”
