She was accorded a state funeral with gun salute, an acknowledgement for her contribution in the field of performing arts.
Sridevi’s mortal remains reached her Lokhandwala residence in Mumbai late evening Tuesday and the funeral is scheduled for 3:30 pm today at Ville Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium. Sridevi’s body will be at the Celebration Sports Club in Lokhandwala near her home for fans to pay their last respects from 9.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. Sridevi passed away late Saturday night in her hotel room in Dubai. She was in the city to attend a family wedding. Sridevi’s fans from within the gilded inner circle of Indian cinema and movie buffs both are clutching at fond memories of the actor as the final hours approach.
