Kapoor family and millions of fans bid emotional goodbye to Bollywood’s first female superstar, Sridevi. The body of the veteran actor was taken covered with white flowers and wrapped in tri-colour as the honour of respect. Thousands of fans walked along as Kapoor family along with Sridevi left the Celebration Sports Club for the crematorium yesterday.
Few hours after Sridevi was cremated, husband Boney Kapoor released a statement from Sridevi’s twitter handle on Wednesday saying the loss was “inexplicable in words”.
“Losing a friend, wife and mother of your two daughters is a loss inexplicable in words… I am blessed to have the support and love of Arjun and Anshula, who have been such pillars of strength for myself, Khushi and Janhvi. Together, as a family we have tried to face this unbearable loss,” he wrote.
