They were known to be friends and superstar Rajinikanth had expressed shock when the news of Sridevi's demise came. The actor had even flown down to Mumbai to offer his last respects to the Kapoor family even before Sridevi's mortal remains were brought back to India from Dubai.

Which is why when the Kapoor family organised a prayer meeting in honour of the late actress, it was surprising to see Rajinikanth giving it a miss. His wife, Latha, did attend but the superstar was conspicuous by his absence. 

Turns out the actor could not attend the meeting as he is in the Himalayas on a spiritual trip. The actor left for the trip on Friday and hence had to skip Sridevi's prayer meeting. 

A day after Sridevi's demise, the actor had tweeted, "I’m shocked and very disturbed. I’ve lost a dear friend and the industry has lost a true legend. My heart goes out to her family and friends. I feel the pain with them #RIPSridev ... you will be missed.(sic)"
