Last evening I was English Vinglish while thoroughly enjoying and admiring the timeless Sridevi, a brilliant actress of this and the previous era, a phenomenon. This comes as an absolute shock that she passed away in Dubai on Saturday night (Feb 24, 2018) after a severe cardiac arrest at a wedding ceremony.
The news was confirmed by her brother-in-law Sanjay Kapoor. Sridevi was attending the wedding of Mohit Marwah along with her husband Boney kapoor and daughter Khushi in Dubai, UAE where she suffereda severe cardiac arrest. She was 55.
“Yes, it is true that Sridevi passed away. I just landed here, I was in Dubai and now I am flying back to Dubai. It happened around 11:00 pm.” Sanjay Kapoor told Indian Express.
Well wisher are rushing to her home in Mumbai to pay their respect to her elder daughter Janhavi Kapoor, who was in Mumbai because of her schedule.
One can only wish that this news is just a rumor. She is one of the few actress who has touched so many emotional nerve in everybody’s heart. We sincerely hope that she is in a better place.
May she Rest In Peace.. :'((
