After hearing the sad news of the passing of veteran Malayalam star KPAC Lalitha, tributes are pouring in on social media from all corners. Actor Dulquer Salmaan took to his Instagram handle and shared the last few moments he spent with the legendary actress, with whom he last shared screen space in a film titled Varane Avashyamund in 2020. Sharing pictures with her from the sets of the film, Dulquer Salmaan wrote, "My best on screen pairing. The most love I’ve felt for a co-actor. As an actor she was magic, wearing her genius as lightly as her smile. I’ve never felt more alive in a scene cause she transcended the written word. These pictures are from our last day together. I couldn’t let go and demanded hugs and kisses. She kept saying we should do a film where we are a mother and son constantly bickering. I thought we had timeLike how we began every text message to each other ….Chakkare Evideya ?? #lalithaaunty #endechakkarakutty #myhearthurts"
