Veteran actor Sridevi passed away in a hotel room of Dubai’s Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel.
She was attended in nephew Mohit Marwah’s February 22 wedding in Ras Al-Khaimah, Dubai.
Sridevi suffered a cardiac arrest on Saturday, when she was apparently found unconscious in the bathroom by a staffer.
An employee on the condition of anonymity said that the actor was residing alone.
He said, “At around 10.30 pm, she called the room service to request for water. When the server reached her room within 15 minutes, the actor did not attend to multiple doorbells. After a few minutes, fearing something was amiss, the staffer raised an alarm. When we broke into the room, we found her on the bathroom floor. This was around 11 pm. She had a pulse when we found her.”
Sources further added, “While Sridevi appeared healthy, should she have been feeling uneasy, she may have attributed it to the exhaustive wedding ceremonies. “We rushed her to [Rashid Hospital], where she was declared dead on arrival.”
According to reports, Sridevi was not in company of husband Boney Kapoor at the time of suffering the attack. Boney had returned to Mumbai on Thursday after the wedding, while Sridevi headed to Dubai to attend an auction of her paintings.
The actress was renowned for being a brilliant package of beauty and a powerhouse performer.–CINEWS
