Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has shared a throwback picture of Sridevi ahead of her death anniversary, February 24. In the throwback video, RGV and Sridevi are seen sharing the dais with Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh and Nagarjuna. However, here comes the twist as no one can beat RGV for his inimitable style. Sharing the throwback picture with the caption written in Telugu which loosely translates to “honesty lies with me, Sridevi and Nagarjuna”.
RGV’s tweet reads, “Left and right hands lo glasslu vunnai ..madhayalo vunna valla hands lo vunnavevo dhasthunnaru Sridevi garu hands rende free ga kanapaduthunnai..Yendhukante nijayathee kevalam naalonoo nagarjunakinoo ,sridevilonoo maatrame vundhi kaabatti”. The tweet loosely translates in English as “There are glasses in the left and right hand. Whatever is there in the hands in the middle seems hidden. Only Sridevi garu’s hands remain free. The honesty either lies with me, Nagarjuna or Sridevi.”
RGV who affirm ahs die-hard fan of the veteran actress has also talked about Sridevi in his book Guns and Thighs. He in fact, shared an heart-wrenching letter for her, which reads, “Her beauty and sex appeal were so overpowering that it took many films and many, many years for both the audience and industry to recognize the actress in her, who was first showcased in the most effective way by Shekhar Kapur in Mr India. Even though her acting prowess was evident right from her debut film, her superstardom gave prominence only to her sex symbol image, which was so strong it blinded everybody to her tremendous talent.”
