20 Photos That You'll Have To Look At Twice To Fully Understand
Everybody knows Sridevi was known as the first female superstar BUT very few of them know that she was also an real life superstar. She have been an inspiration for many, one of them was Harish Iyer.
After a long break, Sridevi gave a comeback with the film 'English Vinglish' and after that she gave an surprise guest appearance on an episode of the TV show Satyamev Jayate in the year 2012.
The episode was based on Harish Iyer, prominent LGBTQ activist, who shared horrifying details of the sexual abuse he faced as a child. And he also shared that how sridevi's films helped him to overcome from his traumatised situation and she was an inspiration to him.
Sridevi met him and and after listening to him she said, “Harish, the mental trauma you have suffered till the age of 18 – I can’t even imagine that someone would do something like this to a child. You have shown the courage of sharing your past with us all. It will give courage to so many children who are going through this hell right now. That makes you a real hero.”
After meeting his inspiration and dream icon for real, Harish was speechless and was on 7th sky and cloud 9. Harish also said, “I just have to tell you that since childhood, away from the abuse I was facing, I had built this fantasy world and it was always Sridevi, always Main Teri Dushman [song from her movie Nagina]. Maybe that’s why we call it cinema… ‘see new maa’, it’s a different kind of mother.”
Now when Harish heard about her death, Harish was heartbroken and too depressed and he also stated, I saw a star falling onto earth. Now it has gone back to the skies. And there will never be a star like Sridevi.
