Sridevi cremated with State Honours, thousands say bye
Bollywood superstar -- the popular film industry's first woman to hold that title - Sridevi Kapoor, 54, was cremated with state honours on Wednesday evening, four days after her unfortunate death by accidental drowning in Dubai.
Before her final journey to the crematorium from the sports club, Sridevi was draped in the tricolour and her entire family stood next to her.
Since early morning, thousands stood patiently outside the sports club, in nearly a mile-long queue at all moments, for a last glimpse of the Padma Shri actress.
Here are the LIVE updates:
Sridevi made her acting debut in 1978 with Solva Sawan and went on to become a household name with Jeetendra-starrer Himmatwaala. She is survived by husband Boney and two daughters- Khushi and Jhanvi; Jhanvi is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Dhadak.
