India's first female superstar Sridevi died late Saturday night after suffering a cardiac arrest in Dubai. As the reports of her sudden demise started pouring in, social media reacted in shock and disbelief, but it was a tweet by megastar Amitabh Bachchan that grabbed more eyeballs than any.
Much before the news of Sridevi's death, Big B posted a tweet saying he was feeling uneasy, suggesting he had premonition about this shock hitting the film industry and lakhs of Sridevi's fans across the globe.
Here's what he tweeted: “Na jaane kyun, ek ajeeb si ghabrahat ho rahi hai (Don’t know why, there’s a weird anxiety)”
Twitterati couldn't help but react in shock as they came across the megastar’s tweet. While some called it “weirdly correct tweet”, some termed it as “extreme premonition”, tweeting “some things are still beyond all scientific explanations”.
Just now bachan sir twitted that he's feeling some negative vibes and just 20 min later SRI DEVI passed away #RIPSridevi

well the day before Amitabh was badly injured while shooting the film Coolie, actress Smita Patil has premonition about it. She phone called Amitabh before the accident and asked if he was ok because she was feeling weird.
