The untimely demise of Sridevi has left her countless fans as well as Bollywood in a state of shock. While a steady stream of B-Town stars visited Anil Kapoor’s Juhu residence yesterday to condole the death of the superstar, several others cancelled events that were scheduled for the week. Shabana Azmi took to Twitter to announce that she and husband Javed Akhtar would not be hosting the annual Holi party this year. “Our Holi party at Janki Kutir stands cancelled on 2nd March in the wake of Sridevi’s passing away (sic),” she wrote.
Rani Mukerji, who was slated to release a new song of Hichki yesterday, called off the launch. Another ardent fan of the superstar, Kangana Ranaut was stationed in Bikaner for the shoot of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi when she heard about Sridevi’s death on Sunday morning. So distraught was the actor that she cancelled her shoot for the day. The unit of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor-starrer 102 Not Out too decided to defer the filming of their song on Sunday, as a mark of respect to India’s first female superstar.

Ram Gopal Varma, who had directed Sridevi in Kshana Kshanam (1991) and had often described her as his muse, was grief-stricken by the unfortunate turn of events. He postponed the announcement of the title and poster of his new film with Nagarjuna, to a later date. The music launch of Maniesh Paul-starrer Baa Baaa Black Sheep, scheduled to take place today was also called off.
