In a major jolt to the Hindi film industry, actress Sridevi passed away on Saturday night. The 54-year-old actress died of cardiac arrest in Dubai.

The actress was in UAE along with her husband Boney Kapoor and her younger daughter Khushi to attend a family wedding. Born as Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan, Sridevi was known for her iconic roles in Hindi movies like Chandni, Lamhe, Mr India, Chaalbaaz, Nagina, Sadma, and many more.

Sridevi received Padma Shri award

The Padma Shri awardee actress had also made a mark with her performances in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada films. In 2012, Sridevi returned to films after a 15-year-long hiatus with Gauri Shinde’s movie English Vinglish. The actress was last seen in Bollywood movie ‘Mom’ in 2017.

She was considered one of the very few Indian female superstars capable of huge box office success without the support of a male hero. She starred in more than 150 films.

Meanwhile, the body of Sridevi will be flown to Mumbai this evening after completion of formalities in Dubai. As per the procedure, the local police will carry out an investigation before handing over the death certificate.
