She is due to be cremated at a private Hindu ceremony later on Wednesday. Sridevi’s last journey would commence from the club to the crematorium about 7 Km away near Pawan Hans, Vile Parle West States 2pm India time. The last rites will take place from 3.30pm onward

The tragic death of Sridevi, considered to be one of the most influential Bollywood actresses of all time sparked an outpouring of grief in India.

Tributes poured in from fans and fellow actors as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The “Mr India” star drowned in her bathtub after losing consciousness late Saturday in a hotel in Dubai, where she was attending a wedding.

Police in the emirate said a post-mortem examination found that she had drowned after losing consciousness. On Tuesday they ruled out any foul play and released the body to Sridevi’s family.

Her body arrived back in Mumbai on a private jet on Tuesday evening, accompanied by her husband, the filmmaker Boney Kapoor, and her stepson, actor Arjun Kapoor.
