Though the late Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalithaa was hospitalized for a number of weeks before she passed away, the news still came as a shock to most.
Among the tributes that have been pouring in for her, several from the film industry have expressed their grief and have shared their memories of her.
Actor Sridevi, who made her debut in films as a child artist, shared an old photograph of hers from the Tamil film "Aathi Parasakthi", in which she acted as Lord Muruga. Jayalalithaa played the role of Goddess Parvati and Gemini Ganesan was Shiva.
Sridevi said that Jayalalithaa was "the most articulate, dignified, cultured & caring lady". She added that she was lucky to have worked with her and that she would miss her.
A great leader who drew huge respect,love,adulation & worshiped by millions of followers,the country will surely miss Jayalalithaa Amma. RIPâ€” SRIDEVI BONEY KAPOOR (@SrideviBKapoor) December 6, 2016
