And my childhood memory of hers is her living with me in my house for many many years. And her letting me watch Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke on her television in her bedroom. I'll never forget that.”
Sridevi's Mr. India also starring Anil Kapoor is a favourite for actor Taapsee Pannu too as she said, "Right from Mr. India to Chaalbaaz, I will always remember just one name that’s irreplaceable and I don’t think anyone can fill that space up ever."
