Like the Bollywood parable often told to us, ‘Chandni’ Sridevi has now become a star ensconced in the skies after her demise that had imploded our shock absorbing systems last Sunday with its suddenness. Perhaps we did not heed to her ‘kisi
PadMan. Honestly I was too skeptical after Balki’s last 2 attempts Shamitabh and of course Ki & Ka. It was a tad disappointing after so much was spoken after Cheeni Kum and Pa. But being associated with Lintas and the man himself, the emotional part got better of me and I braved myself to watch
