Sridevi, 54, passed away in Dubai late Saturday night, plunging the entire country into a pall of gloom with her fans and admirers expressing shock and disbelief.

The actor breathed her last on Saturday night at around 11pm following a fatal cardiac arrest. She was rushed to the nearby Rashid Hospital but was pronounced dead on admission.

Sridevi was in Dubai to attend the marriage function of actor Sonam Kapoor's cousin Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi.

The actor is remembered for her performances in some of the most iconic Bollywood films like "Mr. India", "Nagina", "Sadma", "ChalBaaz", "Chandni", "Khuda Gawah", among many others in different Indian languages.

The Padma Shri recipient, who made a comeback to Bollywood in 2012 with "English Vinglish" after a long break of 15 years, was last seen in "Mom" in 2017.
