Ram Gopal Varma wrote a letter to the fans of Sridevi declaring Athiloka Sundari belongs to her admirers more than anyone else and they deserve to know the truth. Having worked closely with her for films ‘Kshana Kshanam’ and ‘Govinda Govinda’, He believes the life of Sridevi was a classic case of how each person’s actual life is completely different from how the world perceives it. ‘For many, Sridevi’s life was perfect. Beautiful face, great talent, seemingly stable family with two beautiful daughters. From outside everything looked so enviable and desirable… But was Sridevi a very happy person and did she lead a very happy life?,’ he asks.
According to RGV, Sridevi’s life was like a bird in the sky till her Father’s death and later became bird in a cage due to her over-protective Mother. Friends and Relatives to whom her Friends offered black money fearing tax raids out of fear of raids betrayed her after the demise of her Father. Sridevi’s Mother made many wrong investments due to her ignorance. All these made Sridevi penny less by the time Boney Kapoor came into her life. Boney was in huge debts by then and all he could afford to give her a shoulder to cry on.
Sridevi’s Mom became mentally sick after faulty surgery in USA. Her Younger Sister Srilatha eloped with Neighbours Son and later moved court saying the will signed by their Mother is invalid she wasn’t mentally fit.
Boney Kapoor’s Mother punched Sridevi in the stomach in a 5-star hotel lobby due to the separation of Boney & his first wife Mona.
Sridevi went through so much in her life and due to her early career entry as a child artiste,life never gave her time to grow up at a normal pace. More than the external peace, her internal mental state was of a high degree of concern and this forced her to look at her own self .
Sridevi is actually a child trapped in a woman’s body. She had to put on the make up and be somebody else not just in front of the camera,but also to put a psychological make up to hide her real self behind the camera. I generally don’t say ” Rest In Peace” after people die, but in her case I want to really say this because I very strongly believe that she would finally and truly rest in peace now for the first time in her life because she died. RIP Sridevi, but I assure u that the world won’t rest in peace for doing this to you.
I now have visions of you flying like a free bird across heavenly land scapes with true peace and happiness in your eyes. I don’t believe in reincarnation but I truly want to believe in it now because we fans in our next birth deserve to experience you once again and this time we will try our best to make amendments and make ourselves worthy enough to deserve you
Please give us that one chance Sridevi because we all truly love you. I can go on writing like this but I can’t stop my tears any more…
