Fans and actors pay last respects to Sridevi

Bollywood celebrities, other film personalities and hundreds of fans on Wednesday joined the family of Sridevi for the funeral of the actress in Mumbai – the seat of India’s Hindi film industry.

The Bollywood star’s body, wrapped in the national flag, was kept at the Celebration Sports Club in Mumbai where fans and actors paid their last respects. The hearse carrying her body is being taken to Pawan Hans crematorium for the final rites.

Sridevi, one of India’s most celebrated actresses, will be cremated with state honours later on Wednesday.

The actress passed away on Saturday due to an “accidental drowning” in the bathtub of her hotel room in Dubai. Earlier reports said that she died of heart attack while attending a wedding.

Her funeral, slated for Monday, was delayed as prosecutors in Dubai conducted autopsy to find out the circumstances of the shocking death. She was 54.

Her body was flown back to India on Tuesday, after it was handed over to the family, led by her producer husband, Boney Kapoor.

Dubai Police said the case of her death was closed.
