Even as the industry and Indian public are coming to terms with the shock of actress Sridevi's sudden demise, there are a number of rumours circulating around on the internet suggesting the cause of death. The actress passed away on Saturday (24 February) suffering a cardiac arrest in Dubai.
However, a recent report in Khaleej Times, a UAE based newspaper, suggests that the actress was happy and planning for a dinner with husband, Boney Kapoor, before she suffered a cardiac arrest.
Quoting an unnamed source, the report says that Sridevi had retired to her hotel after Mohit Marwah's wedding celebrations. The actress was met by her husband, Boney Kapoor, who had flown back to Dubai from Mumbai to surprise her.
Kapoor woke her up from her nap, and spoke to her for 15 minutes. It was then that the actress decided to refresh herself, and went to the bathroom.
The report says that when the actress did not return after 15 minutes, Kapoor knocked on the door. Hearing no reply, he forced open the door to find her lying motionless in the bathtub full of water.
The report quoted the source as saying, "He tried to revive her and when he could not, he called a friend of his. After that, he informed the police at 9pm."
The police and paramedics rushed to the site, and pronounced her dead.
Sridevi, who starred in films across languages like Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam, was 54. Her body is expected to be handed over to the family, and flown home today. As per the latest reports, the official handing over has not yet been completed.
The body will first be taken to the family bungalow, Bhagya, where friends and family will pay their last respects.
The cremation is expected to be performed at the Pawan Hans crematorium in Juhu today.
