Today, we woke up to the shocking news of the demise of fine actress of Indian Cinema, Sridevi (https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/sridevi-bollywood-legend-condoled-by-prime-minister-narendra-modi-others-after-sudden-death-1816912)
It sounds clichéd to say We grew up watching her movies… We did though… Be it Sadma, Mr. India, Lamhe, or Chandni to her latest ones, English Vinglish (One of my favorites) or Mom. She indeed was a gifted actress; not only beautiful, she could emote so well and brought life to each and every type of character she played.
We are seeing plenty of posts on news and social media pouring in condolences.
There are a few posts trying to dissect the cause of her death!! One such post goes on to say she was insecure about her appearance, she had undergone cosmetic surgeries resulting in health complications, her husband just viewed her as an arm candy, she had become the object of famous designers to hang the clothes on!!!
My question to such people analyzing her lifestyle and death is:
- What do you know about her personal life?
- Do you even understand or think about the pain her family and loved ones are experiencing due to her sudden death?
- If she looked beautiful and fit at 50, was it all because of cosmetic procedures?
- If people resorting to cosmetic procedures would die, was she the only one who did so?
- If she appeared tired in some photos, that might just be because of the journey / hectic schedule.
- Didn’t you like watching her movies and beautiful photographs be it with awe or envy?
This is the sad part of being a celebrity or a noted individual. Everybody will have a opinion about their life.
We just know her as a fabulous actress. Passing comments on her personal life even at the the time of her death is very bad, sad, and sickening. How about respecting and appreciating her for her talent and contribution to Indian Cinema?
Sridevi’s sudden death is indeed an irreplaceable loss to her family, loved ones, fans, and the world of Cinema.
She will continue to live through her movies for many, many years to come. RIP…
