Sridevi's death to that of Michael Jackson's.
Granted she seemed to be a kinder, bolder human being at some level.
But the similarities are so striking.
Sudden unexpected cardiac arrest in their fifties. (I firmly believe that Sridevi was 3-4 years older than the 54 she claimed to be)
Numerous plastic surgery attempts to the extent that they seemed to be constantly experimenting with their bodies.
(Of course, Sridevi was successful in looking pretty, while MJ's attempts were more disastrous.)
Yes, they were very professional, and believed that their professional duties extended to keeping their looks intact, as well as enhancing them wherever they could.
It is a guess based on rumours that they medicated themselves to look fit.
The pity is that both these artists, blessed with above average talent, and popularity and wealth that far exceeded anything that any talent deserves, believed that their appearance was as important as their work.
NEWS FLASH: my daughter says that actor Vishal has made the same comparison. I guess most of the younger crop of actors have adhere to fitness dictums, and are able to make the connection.
Enough about visual media, and its martyrs at the feet of Goddess Image.
