Sridevi’s body to be flown back to India today


Dubai: Veteran actor Sridevi’s mortal remains will be flown back to India from Dubai Monday, her family said in a statement.

Sridevi’s body could not be repatriated on Sunday as the final investigation reports from Dubai Police were not ready last evening.

Reliance Communications (RCom) chairman Anil Ambani has reportedly offered to fly her remains back home in his private jet.

Sridevi, 54, wife of producer Boney Kapoor, died late Saturday night reportedly due to a cardiac arrest in Dubai’s Jumeirah Emirates Towers. The actress and family were in town after attending the wedding of her nephew and actor Mohit Marwah which took place in Ras Al Khaimah.

Indian Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri and Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul, Indian Consulate representatives were coordinating with Dubai Police and other authorities concerned.

However, the procedures to send her body to India could not be completed on Sunday before office hours in local departments. The Kapoor family in a statement issued on Sunday night said that her body will arrive in India Monday.livemint
