Like many, Sridevi's sudden demise earlier this year shocked Kapoor too. On getting the news, he had expressed grief.

"Henceforth no more Moonlit nights! Chandni gone forever. Alas!" he had tweeted back then.

Later, grief turned to anger and Kapoor was miffed with the way Sridevi was referred to as a 'body'. "Suddenly your individuality gets lost and becomes a mere body??" wrote Kapoor.
