The Dubai police on Sunday evening completed the autopsy on actress Sridevi who died of a cardiac arrest. Before this unfortunate incident, Sridevi along with her husband and producer and younger daughter Khushi was attending her nephew Mohit Marwah's wedding in Dubai.
After the initial reports came out about the untimely death of the actress, some netizens raised concerns on social media. These speculations caught their attention especially after the Dubai authorities asked for an autopsy.
According to Khaleej Times, Sridevi fainted in her hotel bathroom and was rushed to Rashid Hospital in Dubai, UAE. However, conducting a postmortem of a deceased person from a different country is a routine. This invariably caused a delay in bringing back the celebrated actress' remains to India. The remains are expected to be brought by a chartered flight on Monday.
We have been receiving several queries regarding the sad untimely demise of the noted actor Sridevi Boney Kapoor in Dubai last night. Consulate is in constant touch with high authorities of Dubai police to expedite formalities so that the mortal remains can depart for India ASAP.— India in Dubai (@cgidubai) February 25, 2018
Many, including Sridevi's brother-in-law Sanjay Kapoor, had shared that the actress was not known to have a history of heart disease.
It must be noted that The New Indian Express cannot verify the circumstanes and does not support any rumours surrounding the actress' death.
The rumours attributed the cause for her death to the multiple cosmetic surgeries the actor had allegedly undergone.
I'll remember #Sridevi as THE early exponent of cosmetic surgery. Gave Michael Jackson a serious run on the nose front. Won't be surprised if her demise was caused by Botulinus poisoning.— Abhimanyu Singh Rana (@abhimanyusrana) February 25, 2018
While some of her family members returned from Dubai after the wedding, Sridevi, Boney and their younger daughter Khushi stayed back.
Her elder daughter -- Janhvi -- had not travelled with the family because of the shooting schedule for her upcoming Bollywood film 'Dhadak', her first in the industry.
Sridevi, known for her versatility as an actor, made her Bollywood debut in 1978 with "Solva Sawan".
But it was only after five years with Jeetendra-starrer "Himmatwala" that she gained commercial success.
Before her entry into Bollywood, the actor had been a known face in South Indian films.
While films like "Mawaali" (1983), "Tohfa" (1984), "Mr India" (1987) and "Chandni" (1989) kept her at the top in the box-office game, her outings like "Sadma" (1983), "ChaalBaaz" (1989), "Lamhe" (1991), and "Gumrah" (1993) earned her critical acclaim.
She went on a hiatus for 15 years after starring in home production "Judaai", co-starring her brother-in-law Anil Kapoor and Urmila Matondkar.
The actress marked her comeback with the bilingual movie 'English Vinglish' in 2012. Her last appearance was a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero'.
