When requested if it was heart-breaking for her to peer their names within the #MeToo movement, Madhuri said, "It is always shocking. Because you've known them and you've not known them like that."

The 51-year-old actor said she took time to "digest" that Sridevi was no more.


"What took time was to digest the entire thing that had came about. It was so shocking, I was like 'you need me to do this position?' because even they have been stuck. They needed to go on.


"As a person it was hard to deal. As an actor, you realize the position, the script. It's a special subject altogether. But to simply accept the reality was very difficult," she added.
