Bollywood celebs will not be celebrating Holi with much enthusiasm this time due to the demise of actress Sridevi.
Shabana Azmi has canceled a scheduled Holi party. Amitabh, Jaya, and Aishwarya were seen at the condolence meet of the legendary actress who was honoured with the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour, in 2013.
