'She was like my mother'- Sajal Ali

Sridevi and Sajal Ali

Pakistani actress Sajal Ali will soon be seen in the film 'What's Love Got to Do with It?'. She is going to make her Hollywood debut. In a recent media interview, Sajal remembered late actress Sridevi. She said that Sridevi was like a mother to her. Apart from this, she also expressed his desire to work with Indian artists.

In an interview with a newspaper, Sajal remembered the late actress Sridevi and said, "I was very close to Sridevi. She unfortunately left us too soon. I never really talked about her and my relationship. She used to guide me like her own daughter."

Sajal further said, "She was like my mother. We not just shared a work relationship. It was more than that for us. I came to India when I was shooting for 'Maa'. At that time, she also met my mother. My mother left us before the release of the film and then a few months later Sridevi also left us. It was a very emotional bond. We used to talk on the phone for hours and she guided me like a daughter, I really missed her a lot."

Sajal said, 'But I want to say that it is very unfortunate that we artists get caught in the tension between the two countries. This affects our work. I got a lot of love and respect when I worked in Bollywood, which is very close to my heart till date."

Actress Sajal added, "I would like to work in India again. But I don't know when it will happen. Let's see what the future holds for me. I have been talking about this for years. I think that politics should not come between art and artist and I hope that this wall built between India and Pakistan will disappear."
