After handing over her body to relatives, Police in Dubai have now closed the case of the death of Bollywood superstar Sridevi Kapoor. The actress, 54, died on Saturday due to accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub following loss of consciousness. It had earlier been reported that she died of cardiac arrest attending a family wedding in Dubai.
Her body is being flown to India for her funeral. Crowds gathered outside her home in Mumbai to pay their last respects ahead of her cremation. Sridevi, who appeared in nearly 300 films in her long career spanning over five decades, was one of the numbered few Indian female superstars of her time capable of garnering massive box-office success without the support of a famous male lead.
