Talking about Sridevi, the 51-year-old actress said, “What took time was to digest the whole thing that had happened. It was so shocking, I was like ‘you want me to do this role?’ because even they (filmmakers) were stuck. They had to go on.”
Madhuri further added “As a person, it was hard to deal. As an actor, you know the role, the script. It’s a different matter altogether. But to accept the truth was very difficult.”
Post Sridevi’s untimely demise, Janhvi Kapoor took to her Instagram handle to thank Madhuri for taking up her mother’s role.
She wrote, “Abhishek Varman’s next film was very close to mom’s heart ...Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuriji for now being a part of this beautiful film.”
