Sridevi died in Dubai on Sunday following cardiac arrest. The Padma Shri recipient was there to attend the marriage function of actress Sonam Kapoor’s cousin Mohit Marwah, along with husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi.
The news of her death came as a shock for everyone in the film industry. A lot of rumours have been coming up on how the actress died. From a cardiac arrest to accidental drowning, the actress’s body was in Dubai and Boney Kapoor was also asked to give statements.
Whereas now, according to a report in Mid-Day, Subramanian Swamy states that the actress was murdered. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy also blamed Dawood Ibrahim for “illicit relations between cinema actresses and Dawood.”
He said, “It doesn’t appear to me the facts that have come out in the media are consistent. She never drank hard liquor so how did it enter her system? Was she forcibly fed”
“It suddenly appears in the media that she died of heart failure as if it’s pre-planned. If you ask my opinion I’ll tell you that I think it’s murder.”
For three days, the Dubai police authorities completed various legal and medical formalities before the body was finally handed over to the Kapoor family on Tuesday afternoon.
Sridevi’s colleagues and members of the film fraternity said a final farewell to the actress at the Celebration Sports Club in Lokhandwala, Mumbai on Wednesday. South actors Chiranjeevi and Prakash Raj along with Bollywood actors such as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sushmita Sen, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol and others were pictured at the condolence meet, which began at 9.30 am.
