Sridevi Prayer Meet: Rani Mukerji Looked After Bollywood Visitors To The Grieved Kapoor Family
As celebrities have now stopped coming in to offer condolences to the bereaved Kapoor family and it's time for Sridevi'slast journey, we are told by an insider at the meet that Rani Mukerji was the person who was taking care of the guests and all the arrangements inside...
Rani Mukerji and Sridevi had got extremely close to
each other in the last 2 years, after the former gave birth to Adira. Sridevi
was Rani's idol and treated the late actress as her elder sister.
Sridevi's sudden demise has left Rani in deep shock. But the actress was holding up strong and taking care of everything at the prayer meet, which has just ended at Celebrations Sports Club, Lokhandwala.
Right from receiving the guests and all the arrangements at the venue, it wass Rani who was supervising everything around the guests inside the meet.
A few days back, talking about her equation with Sridevi to a section of media, Rani had said, “She loved my work immensely and I received lot of love from her. She used to call me laddoo; she would say, ‘Arre my laddoo’ each time I met her and I am going to miss that. I was actually looking forward to show her my film. She called me after seeing the trailer and said, 'Laddoo, I have to see this movie'. I told her, 'Yes maa as soon as the movie is ready, I can show it you'. It is a huge loss not only for the movie industry but also for us as a family who belong to the films. Anybody who departs we feel that sense of loss and for me especially because I had a personal connect with her. Since I had a child, she’s been very supportive these last two years. She has been so inspirational. The kind of love that she has given to me and Adira (daughter) has been phenomenal. She was literally like my elder sister, like an elder maasi (aunty) to Adira, she was a pillar of support to me in the last two years."
Just like Rani, Vidya too was close to the late actress. A few minutes back, we told you how at the prayer meet, Vidya got extremely emotional and broke down.
Celebrities like Rekha, Vivek Oberoi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sushmita Sen, Sidharth Malhotra, Jaya Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol, Ajay Devgn, Jacqueline Fernandez, Prem Chopra, Rajkummar Rao, Patralekhaa, Jaya Prada were among the many others who attended the prayer meet.
In the next 30 minutes, the last journey of Bollywood's first female superstar will begin. The funeral will take place at Pawan Hans Crematorium around 3:30 pm.
