Sridevi’s body was found in a bloated state
The untimely demise of veteran actor Sridevi has sent shockwaves in the industry. Devastated family members are still in disbelief about the news of her passing away. The Bollywood legend passed away on February 24, 2018, in Dubai in her hotel bathtub.
While the earlier reports suggested that she died after suffering a heart attack, forensic reports confirmed that it was a result of accidental drowning. The report suggested that the actor under the influence of alcohol lost her balance and drowned in her bathtub.
Now, as per a report in a leading news channel, her body was found in a bloated state. Sources told the leading news channel that medical experts were called to the hotel bathroom and helped pull Sridevi’s body out of the bathtub. This is contrary to earlier reports which suggested that it was husband Boney Kapoor who pulled Sridevi’s body out of the bathtub.
The Indian High Commission in the UAE had on Sunday told the channel that they were on standby to complete the necessary procedures to bring back Sridevi’s mortal remains once the Dubai authorities had given their clearance. The mortal remains are expected to be brought back aboard Anil Ambani’s private jet.
Boney Kapoor is to return to the Hotel where Sridevi had died. Reportedly, the hotel room had been marked as a ‘crucial spot’ by investigators. Sources also confirmed that she hadn’t left the room for 2-3 days.
Sridevi’s last rites are scheduled to take place in Mumbai. A number of industry persons are expected to attend.
Boney Kapoor and daughter Khushi Kapoor had returned to India after attending Mohit Marwah and Antra Motiwala’s wedding ceremony. Sridevi had stayed back to spend time with her sister Srilatha, as per reports. Sridevi had checked into Emirates Towers. Boney Kapoor attended Manmohan Shetty’s birthday dinner in Mumbai, post which he had returned to Dubai yesterday to surprise Sridevi.
