Morning of February 25, 2018, will always remain the darkest morning for every Indian. Everybody woke up to the news of the sudden demise of the legendary actress, Sridevi. In her Mr. India’s director, Shekhar Kapur’s words, “You were the most exciting actress I ever worked with. Your energy on camera was scintillating. There was not a moment on screen that you did not have the audience in your grip. Be it an emotion, a comic moment, a dance. As a human being, you were incredibly supportive of those you were close to.”
While the entire nation is grief-stricken, we can’t even imagine what it must be to live the heart-wrenching reality for those who were close to her; for her husband, Boney Kapoor, for her two daughters- Khushi and Janhvi, and for those who spent some moments with her before her death. Who would have thought that the person dancing all hale and hearty, and shaking her legs at Mohit Marwah’s wedding in Dubai would soon leave us forever? Speaking of this, we can’t get over a video that has surfaced online in which Sridevi and Anil Kapoor are seen dancing. Check out the video of Sridevi with Anil Kapoor:
We still can’t believe that Sridevi, who is looking so happy and healthy, so much fun and full of joy in her video with Anil Kapoor, is no more with us.
On the morning of February 25, Sanjay Kapoor confirmed the news of her demise to the world stating, “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 roughly around 11.00 -11.30. I don’t know more details yet.” There were reports that the cause of her death was cardiac arrest but later forensic reports suggest that it was ‘accidental drowning.’ The latest development also suggests that Sridevi’s husband, Boney Kapoor and the hotel staff where the two were staying are being interrogated, and Sridevi’s mortal remains are still in the custody of Dubai police.
Meanwhile, her two daughters- Khushi and Janhvi are in Mumbai at Anil Kapoor’s residence and the entire film fraternity is coming down to pay their condolences.
Sridevi’s last pics and videos have taken the internet by storm. Just yesterday, we reported to you another video of Sridevi from Mohit and Antara’s wedding which made the entire nation emotional. In the video, she is seen dancing with her husband, Boney to the hit Hindi song, Kala Chasma. Check it out here:
For the uninitiated ones, Sridevi married Boney Kapoor in 1996, and have two daughters- Janhvi and Khushi. In a throwback interview, which we brought to you, earlier, Boney opened up how he fell in love with Sridevi. He said, “If I was Shah Jahan I would have built her a Taj Mahal. If I were a painter, I would have made her a beautiful painting. But, I make movies. Hence, I don't know a better way than the gift of films for her.”
Seeing Sridevi’s last videos with Anil Kapoor and Boney Kapoor, and her last pics, we still are trying hard to believe that it’s true that she has departed. RIP Sridevi.
