Sridevi getting ready for dinner with husband when she suffered cardiac arrest.
As anxious crowds milled around her Mumbai home and stars visited the family to pay their condolences, a Dubai paper reported that Bollywood superstar Sridevi was getting ready for dinner with husband Boney Kapoor when she suffered a cardiac arrest. Boney and Sridevi, 54, were in Dubai to attend nephew Mohit Marwah‘s wedding.
The family waited all of Sunday but Sridevi’s body was not handed over to them as UAE authorities carried out an autopsy. In a statement last evening, the family said the actor’s body will arrive in Mumbai today.
According to reports, industrialist Anil Ambani has offered to fly Sridevi’s body back in a private jet.
The Indian film fraternity has been shaken by the unexpected tragedy. Hundreds have gathered outside Sridevi’s Mumbai home, hoping for a final glimpse.
