Sridevi's sudden demise has shocked the entire nation. The actress has left everyone grief-stricken, fans and B-Town alike. This untimely demise of the veteran actress in Dubai on Saturday night is something we are yet trying to get over and bet the nation is too. She suffered a cardiac arrest in Dubai and passed away at around 11 pm in her hotel. It was earlier reported that Boney and Khushi Kapoor, who had accompanied her to Dubai for Mohit Marwah's wedding were both present at her time of death. However, new reports now suggest that Sridevi had stayed back post the wedding to spend time with her sister Srilatha, as per reports and had checked into Emirates Towers. Boney Kapoor who came to Mumbai to attend Manmohan Shetty's birthday dinner in Mumbai had returned to Dubai on Saturday to surprise Sridevi. A source recounted her final moments to a Gulf tabloid.
According to the source, Boney Kapoor reached her hotel at 5.30 pm and woke her up and invited her to dinner. Sridevi was resting and after Boney’s arrival, the couple chatted for 15 minutes post which the actress went to the washroom. Sridevi did not come out after 15 minutes and a worried Boney Kapoor knocked on the door. When he got no response, he forced open the door to find her motionless in a bathtub. “He tried to revive her and when he could not, he called a friend of his. After that, he informed the police at 9 pm,” the source said.
Police and doctors arrived and took her to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Another report in a leading daily suggested that not Boney Kapoor, but the hotel staff found her on the bathroom floor after they forced open her room. Sridevi had asked for water and did not open her room after multiple doorbells.
Well, we guess we will have to wait for official statements to be made to know exactly what happened.
