On an early Sunday (25th of February), the world was greeted with a terrible news of Bollywood’s first female superstar, Sridevi’s sudden demise. While yesterday the gone actress was given a grand funeral along with a state honour, in presence of her family. With many celebrities pouring in their love for the late actress, it was Amitabh Bachchan’s tweet which had us in tears, once again.
Big B quoted some beautiful words by Late Kaifi Azmi, which were spoken to him by Javed Akhtar, at the funeral of Sridevi and trust us when we say, the words define what we feel after the demise of Sridevi.
Check out his tweet below:

"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 ..
