Sridevi’s Death Has Hit Her Family Hard This Year



Sridevi - The Queen of Hearts

Time, it is said, heals  all wounds. This is not always the case. The death of the iconic Sridevi  had shaken the nation on February  24, 2018.Five years later the family remains more affected by the tragedy than  ever before.

While  both  husband  Boney Kapoor and daughter Janhvi Kapoor refused to   speak on  Sridevi , I came to  understand they were in deep mourning and wanted to be left to themselves on this day of remembrance.

“Boney and his daughters  flew  to Chennai on Friday  for a family prayer   with Sridevi’s sister and her  husband. Thereafter  they  want to be  left to themselves to  remember Srideviji on this day when the  family lost their  matriarch,” says a  source  close to the family.

Sridevi’s death on  24 February  , 2018 in Dubai  still remains a  mystery. The autopsy report from Dubai stated she died  of “accidental drawning(sic.)”. Forget the fact that the certificate doesn’t even have the decency to spell the cause  of her death correctly.

What about the  sheer impropriety of the nature  of  her death? Who dies by drowning  in a bath tub? No autopsy can determine accidental  drowning. It can determine just the cause of death as drowning. Whether it is an accident or not would be determined by circumstantial evidence.

How did  she fall and die  in the bathtub? How did she get there??  Her husband claims she got up to go to the hotel bathroom to get ready to go out for dinner with him. Given that she had to get ready quickly as her husband was waiting to  take her to dinner , would she fill up the bath tub for a bath  or just take shower and be done with it?

A  bath tub that size takes a minimum of 25-30 minutes to fill. But miracle of miracles, Sridevi  had it filled , got into it and was drowned in  it, all in  15 minutes…Unless she had it filled from before, ready for the catastrophe. And then, even more miraculously, there  was not a drop of water anywhere  outside the  bath tub.All  very confusing.

Boney Kapoor says he called  a friend when he  couldn’t revive his wife in  the  bath tub. Who is  this  mysterious friend whom he called instead  of  calling the cops or the hotel staff? The police were not informed about the sudden death  for three hours. The protocol for hotel staff is to call the police.

The scary part  is  not so much that she died leaving behind many unanswered questions. The scarier part is  those questions will now be never answered. There should have been second autopsy  before her cremation. Now there will be questions remaining about her death, as it happened with Marilyn Monroe.

We have a right to know how she died. Sridevi’s death is  not  a family matter. She belonged to every Indian.
