Manish Malhotra’s tribute to Sridevi

Super diva Sridevi’s untimely death has been written about a lot, but collective grief is still not abating. Recently, Manish Malhotra, who was the late actress’s favourite go-to designer and her close friend, said he will never be able to get over the loss.

Sridevi, and her daughter, Janhvi and Khushi, were often seen in Manish Malhotra creations. Days before she passed away in Dubai on the night of February 24, she had been seen having a gala time with the designer at her nephew and actor Mohit Marwah’s wedding. In fact, Sridevi wore Manish’s designs not only at the wedding, but also all the pre-wedding functions.

Manish has now decided to carry forward her legacy. He plans to archive the late actress’s favourite ensembles designed by him, and preserve them for Janhvi and Khushi.

Mourning Sridevi’s tragic loss, Manish had written on Instagram, “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.”
