Since last three days, fans, media and family members are getting sleepless night after hearing the news of Sridevi’s demise.
Today she will be cremated in Vile Parle.
While most of the film fraternity came to pay their respects at Sridevi's prayer meeting held earlier in the day at Lokhandwala, several Bollywood celebrities were out of the country and unable to bid farewell to India's first female superstar.
With flowers in their hands and a prayer for their screen idol on their lips, thousands of fans today joined Sridevi's family and friends to pay their last respects at a hall where her body was placed ahead of the funeral. The body of the late actor, who died in Dubai on Saturday, was kept at the Celebration Sports Club, minutes away from her residence Green Acres in Lokhandwala. A prayer was performed at the hall before taking the actor's body for the last rites.
A giant photograph of the much loved actor edged with white flowers was put up outside the club, which was covered with white lilies, mogra and red roses. Sridevi's body was brought to the venue at 9 am by her family members.. Inside the hall, her family, including film-maker husband Boney Kapoor, actors Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor, stood in a corner.
While Sridevi's daughters Janhvi and Khushi were standing a little behind them. The actor's mortal remains were draped in a red kanjivaram sari with a bindi on her forehead. After travelling down streets lined with mourners, the funeral procession reached its final destination. The cremation will take place very shortly.
Who’s who from B-town were gathered to bid adieu to ‘Chandni’!
We really hope Khushi, Janhvi and Boney get strength to bear the loss of Sridevi soon.
