“Gone too soon” was the common sentiment of people soon after Sridevi’s death news started circulating. Earlier, it was believed to be another death hoax, but one of the Kapoor family members confirmed the unfortunate death of the actress.
Earlier, it was reported that the actress died due to cardiac arrest but later Forensic reports closed the case mentioning the Sridevi died due to accidental drowning.
Boney Kapoor had actually planned for a surprise dinner date for wife, Sridevi at the same night when she died in the hotel room. Finally, Boney Kapoor opened up about what exactly happened that day.
He said that she went to the bathroom to get ready for the dinner and in spite of knocking and shouting her name her, she did not respond. This lead to a panic situation for Boney. You need to read these statement of Boney Kapoor on Sridevi’s death here.
“On 24th (February 24) morning, I spoke to her. When she told me, ‘Papa (that’s how she addressed Boney), I’m missing you’, I also told her that I was missing her a lot. But I didn’t tell her that I would be joining her in Dubai in the evening. Janhvi had seconded my idea of going to Dubai because she was scared, her mom, not used to being alone, would misplace her passport or some important document if she was alone.”
When Sridevi was in bathroom, Boney Kapoor was in living room watching India v/s South Africa cricket match. When Chandni did not come out the bathroom for 20 minutes, Boney Kapoor was left restless.
He called her Sridevi’s name twice or thrice but she did not respond. He later shouted loudly, but there was no response from Sridevi.
The bathroom was not bolted from inside and hence Boney Kapoor could easily go inside the bathroom. He was shocked to see Sridevi drowning in water. He said,
“The tub was full of water and Sridevi was immersed completely, from head to toe, inside the tub. Devastated, he reached out to her but watching her motionless, he feared the worst.”
Further, Boney said that she did not struggle for a minute inside the bathtub as there was no water spilled outside the bathtub, inside the bathroom.
“Whether she first drowned and then became unconscious, or she first fell asleep or unconscious and then drowned, nobody will, perhaps, ever know. But she probably never got a chance to even struggle for a minute because had she moved her arms and legs in panic while drowning, there would be some water spilling out of the tub. But there wasn’t a drop of water on the floor outside the tub area.”
Well, Boney Kapoor has finally shared about the complete details on the Sridevi’s death mystery.
