The actress has given a range of performances in her career many of which stand out even today. Among them, ‘Judaai’ was one such film where her performance showed her intense acting skills. This film even gave Urmila the opportunity to share screen space with versatile performer Sridevi. (Also Read: Urmila Matondkar on Irrfan Khan’s health: It is very sad to hear about his illness)
Recently, Sridevi passed away at the age of 54 and it was during one of Urmila’s interviews during the promotions of ‘BlackMail’ when she remembered her late co-star as an actor par excellence.
When asked to recall some memories as she had worked with Sridevi in ‘Judaai’, Urmila replied to it, “Well, she was an actor par excellence, what can I say.. I mean we all know that. There’s nothing that she hasn’t managed to do and it was just too tragic to talk about the whole episode and too sudden. I think till the afternoon I never almost believed.. I thought it was some rude joke or something. It’s very tragic.”
Interestingly, it was said that Sridevi was so impressed with the character played by her co-star Urmila in ‘Judaai’ that she named her first child after her character Janhvi.
Talking about ‘BlackMail’, the movie is slated to release on April 6, 2018.
