Sridevi funeral LIVE updates: The actress is draped in her favourite Kanjeevaram for her last rites

Sridevi was a true blue Bollywood diva, and though she has shocked the nation with her sudden death…her legacy of 50 glorious years in the entertainment is enough to inspire us and the future generations. After a tedious procedure undertaken by the Dubai authorities, Sridevi’s body is now in Mumbai after being finally been released and handed over to the next of her kin: Husband Boney Kapoor and brother in law Sanjay Kapoor. Well, while we still wrap our heads around this catastrophe, we pray that her soul rests in peace finally. For the uninitiated, she passed away in her hotel on Saturday night in Dubai. The cause of her death was found out to be ‘accidental drowning’ by the Forensics Department which caused media to speculate about the same. But all said and done, the least we can do is bid her a farewell befitting a queen. Her body of work and priceless contribution to Hindi and South cinema have been etched in stone. Here is everything you need to know about the Queen’s last journey.

A pooja will be held in the hall with strictly only family members by Sridevi’s side. The funeral and last rites will be held at Vile Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium and Hindu Cemetery from 3:30 pm to 5 pm.

Fans and Bollywood celebs have thronged Anil Kapoor’s residence since last three days to pay their homage to the grieving family. Sridevi’s daughters Khushi and Jahnvi are inconsolable and understandably so. We also reported that Anil and Sunita are handling the visitors and are shielding the kids from all the unwanted attention and have made sure that they are in company of cousins and loved ones. Everybody from Salman Khan to Sonam Kapoor are present to bid the Queen last good bye.

It surely is a trying time for the Kapoor family and we pray that they find strength to deal with this. Jahnvi will be seen in Karan Johar’s Dhadak with Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter. It is indeed heart-breaking that her mom won’t be there to watch her shine on 70 mm.
