Late Sridevi Kapoor’s childhood friend Pinky Reddy recently made some unknown revelations about the actress and her last conversation with her.
“I have lost a sister. We met when we were 8-years-old and became close friends. My father was one of the co-producers of Chandni (1989), so I have seen her professional rise. It [her demise] is shocking. We are devastated,” Pinky Reddy told Mid-Day.
Pinky Reddy told Mid-Day that the actress wasn’t feeling well before going for Mohit Marwah’s wedding, “I spoke to her the day she was leaving for Dubai. She was down with fever and was on antibiotics. She was feeling tired, but she said that she has to go for the wedding.”
When she was asked to comment on the sensational coverage of the electronic media on Sridevi’s death, she added, “It hurts me that people are making her death into such a joke. The messages [being circulated] make me angry. People are saying that she underwent liposuction and took fat burners. Why can’t people remember the good things about her instead of talking about all this? After she has gone, how can they even utter such mean and vile things? I spoke to Boney [Kapoor] yesterday, he is shattered.”
Sridevi’s friend also talked about her relationship with husband Boney Kapoor: “They were such a lovey-dovey couple. I doubt if they ever had fights. They were in love and were so happy together. Such things shouldn’t be said at such an unfortunate time.”
Pinky concluded by saying, “She had specially flown down to Hyderabad for two hours to attend my daughter’s baby shower [last November]. Can you imagine that? That was the last time I saw her.”
