Celebrities, politicians and film stars have been paying tributes and sharing their emotions through social media to convey how they feel about Jayalalithaa’s demise.
This is what Malayalam cinema’s superstar Mammootty had to say as his tribute to about Jayalalithaa: “She loved her people as a mother loves her children. A woman does not have to go through labour to become a mother – Jayalalithaa proved this to us. She had joined politics when she was a successful, shining star but she dedicated her life to ensure the betterment of people and worked tirelessly for achieving this.”
Mammootty also said, “People call her as Amma and Iron Woman – her demise is a huge, irreparable loss to the people of Tamil Nadu and most importantly, to women. I can say this with certainty because I have lived for so many years in Chennai and I know how she has dedicated her life to her people, especially to empower and strengthen the women in rural areas.”
Concluding his statement, Mammootty said, ” I pray that her soul rests in eternal peace.”
