Sridevi Death Anniversary: Janhvi, Khushi, Boney Kapoor To Attend Puja In Chennai

IANS, 09 Feb, 2019
  • Sridevi Death Anniversary: Janhvi, Khushi, Boney Kapoor To Attend Puja In Chennai

A puja will be held ahead of the first death anniversary of Sridevi. The legendary actor died in Dubai on February 24, 2018. A new DNA report says that the puja will be conducted at Sridevi’s Chennai home on February 14, and will be attended by Boney Kapoor and Sridevi’s daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.


“Anil Kapoor’s wife, Sunita, as well as some of the other close family members, will also be present,” the report says.


Sridevi died due to accidental drowning in her hotel bathtub in Dubai. She was attending the wedding of nephew Mohit Marwah. The actor was discovered unconscious by her husband. Authorities spent several days giving the necessary paperwork to bring her mortal remains back to India.

 


Huge crowds of mourners - some carrying roses, others holding photos of the late actress - lined Mumbai’s streets to see their beloved idol embark on her last journey.


After a public service, Sridevi’s flower-bedecked funeral cortege made its way slowly to a crematorium where her family said their final goodbye. She was cremated with full state honours at a private Hindu ceremony late in the afternoon after Boney Kapoor, performed the last rites.


Janhvi made her film debut a few months after Sridevi’s death with Dhadak. She said in a recent interview, “I think, I was still in that state of shock, to be very honest. I think I am still in shock. None of it has been processed. Like, I have no memory of three or four months.”
