My heart.

Sridevi's sudden death last week shocked the country and the Indian film industry.

She died after accidentally drowning in her bathtub at age 54 on 24 February while in Dubai for her nephew's wedding.

Earlier today, during the "In Memoriam" segment at the Oscars, they honoured her for her contribution to cinema.

Veteran actor and producer Shashi Kapoor was also honoured in the segment.

And people couldn't handle it.

They included Sridevi and Shashi Kapoor in the In Memoriam tribute and I didn't see it coming and now I'm tearing up a bit #oscars

Seeing Sridevi in the In Memoriam at the #Oscars broke my heart all over again πŸ’”

It's too soon. I'm choking up too.

Omg Sridevi and Shashi Kapoor were included in the #oscars In Memoriam. I’m not crying, you’re crying. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

Call me a sentimental fool if you will, but I always wait for the #Oscars In Memoriam section. I knew #ShashiKapoor would be remembered at today's ceremony because he has worked abroad, but they also honoured #Sridevi today and that meant a lot. A big hug to @TheAcademy.

i cannot believe sridevi is dead still that does not feel REAL

Sridevi in the in memoriam gave me all the feels. Thank you for including this legend πŸ’• #Oscars

Even celebrities couldn't hold themselves back.

Teary eyed to see #Sridevi being featured in the Oscars IN MEMORIUM.. β™₯️

The Oscars paid tribute to our beloved Sridevi...#YourLegacyLivesOn

So amazing to see the #oscars pay respect to #shashikapoor and #sridevi #Oscar90

Forever in our hearts, queen.
