New Delhi, Feb 26: Superstar Sridevi's death is being mourned across the boundaries, be it Pakistan, US or the Gulf countries. The world opened its eyes to the rude shock and many rubbed their eyes thinking it is a bad dream. But the tough truth was staring in the eyes and the And fans literally broke don. There has been no other headline since Sunday morning. With each passing hour new facts are coming out regarding her untimely death.
Sridevi's motionless body was found in a bath tub full of water, and that was the end of an illustrious chapter in the history of Indian cinema. But such actors don't die, they live on.
Who could have thought that the dream inner date with hubby Boney Kapoor would never come. Rather it turned into a nightmare. This is exactly what happened. Boney Kapoor had left Dubai after the marriage of his nephew Mohit Marwah. Sri had stayed back and extended her vacation. On 24th February Hubby Boney Kapoor had again visited Dubai to give her a surprise. The two kept talking and later decided to go for a dinner.
Sri entered the bathroom, never to come back again. After 15 mins Boney knocked the bathroom door but no response came and then he called one of his friends. The hotel was informed and a medical team came. She was taken to the hospital but by then it was too late.
The Padma Shri recipient passed away in Dubai on Saturday night due to cardiac arrest. Sridevi was there to attend the marriage function of actress Sonam Kapoor's cousin Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi. Her other daughter Janhvi stayed back reportedly due to work commitment towards her debut film "Dhadak".
In a moving gesture, Indian industrial magnate Anil Ambani has sent an aircraft to Dubai to bring back her body to India later on Sunday. The funeral is likely to take place on Monday, although there is no word from the family on this so far.
The country is mourning Bollywood icon Sridevi, who died on Saturday evening in Dubai following a cardiac arrest. The 54-year-old, who had dominated the silver screen in the 80s, had gone to Dubai to attend a family wedding.
