Some minutes before legendary Sridevi’s demise, veteran actor and the Shehanshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan sent shivers up social media’s spine when he tweeted that an uneasy feeling was taking him up.
Big B tweeted, Na jaane kyun, ek ajeeb si ghabrahat ho rahi hai.” His ‘unease’ was followed by the “Chandni” of Bollywood, Sridevi Boney Kapoor, passing away. Say it as sixth sense or anything, but hours after Senior Bachchan’s tweet, the world learned that the legendary actress passed away.

Sridevi, who was just 54, passed away due to a cardiac arrest in Dubai on Saturday night. She was present in Dubai to attend the wedding of actor Mohit Marwah, who is the nephew of Boney Kapoor and Anil Kapoor.
Big B and Sridevi had acted in several notable movies like Inquilaab, Aakhree Raasta, and Khuda Gawaah to name some. Amitabh Bachchan also made a special appearance in Sridevi’s English Vinglish, which released in 2012 and marked Sridevi’s return to the silver screen after a gap of many years.
