Sridevi passed away after a massive cardiac arrest in Dubai at the age of 54.

Her brother-in-law Sanjay Kapoor confirmed the news and said she died in Dubai. Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi were in Dubai to attend a family wedding. Her daughter Jahanvi Kapoor couldn't attend the wedding due to Shooting Schedule. She had worked in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Hindi, and Kannada films.


Not only did she regain her place as an actor par excellence, but also as a fashion icon. She was awarded with Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award, in 2013. Her daughter Janhvi is set to make her Bollywood debut this year with Karan Johar’s directorial Dhadak.

The shocking news of her sudden death has prompted a outpouring on Twitter from her friends and fans.


The Bollywood legend, who was married to film producer Boney Kapoor, made her debut as a child actor in 1967.
