The funeral of megastar Sridevi, who passed away in Dubai on Saturday evening, is expected to take place in Mumbai today.
Her family stated that her body will be brought back to Mumbai today. Sridevi, 54, collapsed in her hotel room in Dubai on Saturday evening and a medical team had failed to revive her. She was declared dead when she was taken to the hospital.
Sridevi was in Dubai with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi to attend the wedding of nephew Mohit Marwah. As per report, Boney Kapoor, who had left Dubai for Mumbai after the wedding, returned on Saturday evening to surprise his wife. He reportedly woke Sridevi up around 5.30 pm and the couple chatted for around 15 minutes, the report says.
Then Boney Kapoor asked her to dinner. The 54-year-old star went to the washroom to get ready. When she didn’t come out for some time, her husband knocked, then forced open the door to see the actor “lying motionless in a bathtub full of water”. She reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest in her room in the Jumeirah Emirates Towers hotel, says a report, quoting family sources.
Sridevi’s brother-in-law and actor Sanjay Kapoor said she had no history of heart ailment. The sudden death left her millions of fans and the film industry shocked and heartbroken. Many people from Bollywood visited Sridevi’s brother-in-law’s home in Mumbai on Sunday.
