It's been a dull couple of days for the entire film inudustry ever since reports about legendary actress Sri Devi's demise started to surface.

Today, Boney officially issued a statement on his wife's unexpected departure and requested the fans to give their family the space to mourn in private. Here's what he further said, "Losing a friend, wife, and mother of your two young daughters is a loss inexplicable in words.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my family, friends, colleagues, well-wishers and all of you countless fans of my Sridevi who have stood by us like rocks. I am blessed to have the support and love of Arjun and Anshula, who have been such pillars of strength for myself, Khushi and Janhvi together as a family. We have tried to face this unbearable loss.
To the world she was their Chandni, the actor par excellence their Sridevi but to me she was my love, my friend, mother to our girls, my partner. To our daughters, she was their everything, their life. She was the axis around which our family ran.
As we bid goodbye to my beloved Wife and Khushi & Janhvi‘s mama, I have a sincere request. Please respect our need to grieve privately. If you need to talk of Sri, let it be of the special memories that connect each of you to her. She was and is an actor that is irreplaceable. Love and respect her for that. The curtains never come down on an actor's life, because they shine on the silver screen forever.
My only concern at this time is to protect my daughters and find a way to move forward without Sri. She was our life, our strength and the reason. We always smiled, we love her beyond measure.
Rest in peace, my love. Our lives will never be the same again.
