Veteran actress Sridevi, 54-year-old, breathed her last in Dubai on February 24, 2018. The actress was was in Dubai to attend Mohit Marwah's wedding. In the wake of Sridevi's demise, Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi have already cancelled their annual Holi party.

And now Anushka Sharma's next film Pari's screening also got cancelled. The film's co-producer Prernaa Arora confirmed the news and said, "We are deeply shocked and heartbroken with the untimely demise of our beloved Indian legend, Sridevi. To honour her memory and the legacy she left behind, KriArj Entertainment has decided to cancel the screening of their upcoming film, Pari, which was earlier scheduled for the 28th of February."

Pari is scheduled to release on March 2.

Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter and requested the ongoing 'sensationalism' of Sridevi's death by Indian news channels and said: "T 2728 - Get back .. get back .. just get back .. to love. T 2627 - Get back to love .. it is the only sustainable !! T 2626 - Give love .. share love .. it is the ultimate emotion .. !!! [sic]"

Farah Khan too tweeted: "Theres a special place in Hell for those who exploit a family's grief!! RIP meant rest in peace not " rip" off every shred of dignity!"

Nimrat Kaur too supported and wrote: "Thanks to some torch bearers of yellow journalism, we made headlines the world over for stealing the show from a monumental tragedy. Hope the TRPs were worth it.  "
