Sridevi's ‘Mom’ co-star, Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui, was among the first few people to meet her husband Boney Kapoor at Jumeirah Emirates Tower in Dubai after the actress died. As per reports, Siddiqui said Boney Kapoor was inconsolable after the death of Sridevi.
Siddiqui reportedly came to know of Sridevi’s death when a journalist friend of his called him to confirm the news at 11 pm. He immediately called up Boney Kapoor and rushed to meet him at the Dubai hotel. The actor said he was not allowed to go upstairs as the investigation was going on and the room was cordoned off. After waiting in the lobby for an hour, Adnan Siddiqui could meet Boney Kapoor.
Siddiqui reportedly said that when everything was settled, Boney called him upstairs. The actor added that he was there along with a family friend, his wife and a daughter. Siddiqui reportedly said that Kapoor was crying like a baby and was inconsolable.
As per reports, Adnan was with a clearly stressed Boney Kapoor till 5 am and reportedly asked him to take rest and then left.
Adnan Siddiqui, who played Sridevi’s on-screen husband in ‘Mom’, was invited by the actress for her nephew Mohit Marwah’s wedding in Ras Al-Khaimah. Siddiqui had met Sridevi four days before her sudden death.
The mystery surrounding Sridevi’s demise deepened after the autopsy report revealed that she died on Saturday of ‘accidental drowning’ after losing balance and falling into a bathtub full of water. According to the forensic report, traces of alcohol were also found in the actor's body.
Sridevi's mortal remains are still at the Forensic Centre at the Dubai Police's headquarters and the embalming process is yet to begin. The Dubai Public Prosecutor, to whom the case was transferred on Monday by the Dubai Police, is to take a decision on whether a second autopsy would be conducted.
Sridevi had gone to UAE, along with husband Boney Kapoor and daughter Khushi Kapoor, to attend her nephew Mohit Marwah's wedding. Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor had to skip the wedding celebrations to complete the shoot of her Bollywood debut film ‘Dhadak’. Celebrities and fans have been flocking to the Mumbai residence of Anil Kapoor, brother-in-law of the actress, to offer their condolences.
