Dulquer Salmaan, the Mollywood heartthrob shared a set of pictures of him with the veteran actress to pay his tribute. In his emotionally touching note, the actor 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 time. Like how we began every text message to each other ....Chakkare Evideya ?? (Dear where are you?) 🥺🥺💔💔#lalithaaunty #endechakkarakutty #myhearthurts."

The duo previously collaborated for the film Varane Avashyamund backed by Dulquer's production banner Wayfarer Films.

Lalitha had won two National Film Awards for Best Supporting Actress (Amaram and Shantham) along with four Kerala State Film Awards.
