Sridevi, Changed My Career: Manish Malhotra

The sudden demise of Bollywood superstar Sridevi has left fashion designer Manish Malhotra in a shock, who was very close to the actress. He took to Instagram to express his grief over the death of actress Sridevi.

“Sridevi and I first met in 1990 when she was already a superstar and I was beginning my career. Working with an icon I always called her “Ma’am” and that was a turning point in my career, as it was the beginning of many associations and a longstanding friendship beyond work.” –

A gem lost too soon, a star that will never fade.. A lively spirit who touched hearts of millions and forever served as an inspiration to many. You will be cherished and deeply missed. #RIPSridevi

Sridevi, 54, passed away in the mysteries condition on Saturday night. She was in Dubai to attend the marriage function of actress Sonam Kapoor’s cousin Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi.

Manish said he will “always cherish the precious memories of a friend who was an iconic superstar”.
