The nation bid adieu to the first and forever female superstar of Indian film industry, Sridevi. Her last journey before she hugged the sky angels, was an unforgettable sight with million hearts that joined to say one last goodbye.
As the actress was laid to rest yesterday, Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan paid homage to Sridevi after being part of the last ritual and paying their last respects.
Shah Rukh Khan on his Twitter:
How can one not just feel love & beauty & be grateful for a life that became a part of yours in some small way by making it prettier….isn’t it just easier to feel love & give towards that life, even in death…the comfort of appreciation and gratitude.

Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to share a shayari that Javed Akhtar Saab narrated to him at the funeral:
T 2729 –
"रहने को सदा देहर में आता नहीं कोई
तुम जैसे गये ऐसे भी जाता नहीं कोई"~ कैफ़ि आज़मी.
देहर – means .. the world .
Javed Akhtar narrated this sher to me at funeral of Sridevi .. said it was written at time of Guru Dutt demise ; but so appropriate for today ..
