Hindi film star Sridevi passed away last year on 24 February. As per the Hindu calender, her first death anniversary was yesterday, 14 February 2019. Husband and producer Boney Kapoor held a puja yesterday in Chennai to mark the occasion. 

A picture of the proceedings shows Boney Kapoor at the venue of the puja being escorted by a few guests. A source told the news agency IANS, “The puja happened in the morning at her Mylapore bungalow with only close friends and relatives.” 

Boney’s brother and veteran actor Anil Kapoor was also present at the event. Actor Ajith Kumar, his wife Shalini and filmmaker couple R Balki and Gauri Shinde attended the puja, according to IANS. Sridevi and Boney’s daughters Janhvi and Khushi were not in any of the pictures. 

Sridevi passed away last year in Dubai where she had gone to attend the wedding of her relative and actor Mohit Marwah. The actress was found dead in the bathtub of her hotel room where she was alone. The official cause of the death was given as accidental drowning.

Her body was brought to India a few days later where she was cremated with full state honours.
