The actress died on Saturday night at around 11 p.m. after suffering cardiac arrest in Dubai.
Sridevi was in Dubai to attend the marriage function of actress Sonam Kapoor's cousin Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi. Her elder daughter Jahnvi, who is due to make her Bollywood debut, was in Mumbai.
Sridevi started off as a child actor and grew up perfecting her craft to become a superstar reigning the industry in her own way, where she claimed a space and name for herself in the male-dominated world. With the strong performance and antics displayed on the screen, she made it impossible for one to not notice her. Even the big name in the industry alongside whom she was cast — Amitabh Bachchan, Rajanikant, Rishi Kapoor, Anil Kapoor — looked like mere props around her. That was how the queen of Bollywood perfected her art and made her presence felt.
Sridevi was last seen in Mom in 2017.
