Veteran actress Sridevi passed away and her family, friends, and fans are still shocked by the news of her sudden demise on Saturday, February 24, 2018. Almost all  Bollywood celebrities are continuing to offer their condolences to the 54-year-old Bollywood actress by visiting her family and paying tribute to her by recalling the beautiful memories they once shared with her on social media. However, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who is quite active on Twitter, has not tweeted anything about the sudden death of the actress and chose to maintain silence on this matter. Well, for fans, who are wondering why the actor didn’t express his grief on Twitter, it is reportedly because of the fact that he didn’t think that this was the right thing to do at the moment. Salman Khan had met Sridevi’s family at their Lokhandwala residence in the wee hours of Wednesday, February 28, 2018, after the mortal remains of the 'English Vinglish' actress reached Mumbai from Dubai. The 'Wanted' actor also reportedly broke down as he met Sridevi’s family members to offer his condolences.

Salman Khan and Sridevi’s bond goes way back. They have shared screen space in films like ‘Chaand Kaa Tukdaa’ (1994) and ‘Chandra Mukhi’ (1993). Salman is reportedly one of the very few celebrities, who had received a painting from the late actress. As the actress loved to paint, the 'Dabangg' actor also reportedly encouraged her to start painting again. Following the death of his beloved wife, film producer Boney Kapoor on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, posted an emotional post on social media as he said goodbye to the 'love of his life' for the last time.

Sridevi passed away on Saturday, February 24 in Dubai, where she was attending the wedding of Boney Kapoor's nephew and actor Mohit Marwah with Antara Motiwala. The forensic reports state that the 54-year-old Indian actress died of accidental drowning in her hotel room's bathtub, after suffering a dizzying spell. The funeral took place at Vile Parle's Seva Samaj Crematorium and Hindu Cemetery from 3:30 pm onwards on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, in Mumbai.
