Sridevi was like my sibling: Kamal Haasan

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Fondly remembering late Sridevi, today said even though they were one of the most popular on-screen pairs in the south industry, in real life they were like siblings.

Haasan, while speaking at the Today Conclave here, recalled the time he spent with Sridevi, who passed away on February 24.

"I met when she was 15-16 years old. Sometimes in a family, a brother and sister, during Gokul Ashtami or Krishna Ashtami, are dressed as Lord Krishna and Radha. That is what I feel about We were siblings but were made to do romantic things, which we laughed at," he said.

"It sounds odd that she was like my sister considering that we were one of the most romantic pairs ever. That is what good acting is about," he added.

The said was a great performer and "had a bag of tricks that she collected from various masters who themselves did not know it came from them. That is the beauty of that girl."

Haasan also sang a few lines from the song "Surmayee ankhiyon mein" from their "Sadma" for the audience.
