#chandni is the first movie I went to see on my own, although I did not know her personally, a part of me had been taken away today from me. This puts my life into perspective. Live everyday, tell your loved ones that your love them. Life is short and unpredictable. #Sridevi pic.twitter.com/Ax9gJ40mfk
