Sridevi’s First Death Anniversary A Muted Affair

Boney Kapoor has still not  gotten  over  his iconic Sridevi’s  sudden  death in Dubai on February 23.  A year later, Boney  is still in  a state of numbed disbelief.

A  close  friend  of Boney’s says the wound  is  still very raw. “Boney is  still hurting.  He still bursts into tears at  the drop of a  hat. He spends a lot of time with his  daughters trying to be both a mother and father  to them. Parenting is  the  only solace  he has.”

Apparently Boney  doesn’t touch a  drop of alcohol, as he fears  this indulgence would drop him  in  the  never-ending well of  self-pity and  guilt.

“Boney still  feels he could have saved  Sridevi somehow if he had been there in Dubai with  her when  the death  happens.It won’t be possible for him to move on because withoutSridevi he is lost, just like Shashi Kapoor after his wife Jennifer  passed away. Thankfully, Boney’s  children  are with him. They share the burden of his grief. But they can’t  lessen the pain,” says Boney’s friend.

 Speaking of Shashi Kapoor,  I   do hope Boney doesn’t  let go of his  eating regimen just because his wife  is  no more on  the alert.

“No that is not possible  , as  Boney’s  food habits are being controlled  by his daughters.But  he still misses  his Mrs. It is  widely believed that Boney looked after Srideviji. But the truth was  the other way around. Srideviji took care  of  Boney, from his clothes and  food  to his social engagements,” reveals the friend.
