“Khushi, Janhvi, Boney Kapoor and the entire Kapoor and Ayyappan families are deeply bereaved and shocked with the untimely loss of Sridevi Kapoor. Late Sridevi Kapoor passed away in Dubai, UAE, on Saturday February 24th.

The final journey of the star — best known for her performances in iconic Bollywood films like Mr. India, Nagina, Sadma, Chandni and Khuda Gawah — will commence at 2.00 p.m from the club to the Vile Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium & Hindu Cemetery at S.V. Road in Vile Parle (West), where it will reach around 3.30 p.m.

As per the present arrangements, the media will not be permitted either inside the club or the crematorium.

According to a Khaleej Times report, the laboratory results revealed that she had consumed alcohol and was in an inebriated state when she slipped and fell into the bathtub that was filled with water. The police said that there was no clear criminal motive with regard to her death, neither did she suffer a cardiac arrest, as reported earlier.

Sridevi, who made a comeback to Bollywood in 2012 with English Vinglish after a break of 15 years, was last seen on the big screen in Mom in 2017.
