Barrage of people in thousands is standing outside the gates in Mumbai to offer their respect to Shree devi’s last rites. Legendary actress passed away on the night of 24 February in Dubai and her mortal remains were kept in their for the postmortem which declared the cause of death as accidental drowning. However it happened, Shree devi drowned in her bathtub and died because absolutely no one was in the room to hear her when she must have been struggling. Many film industry people have come to the funeral to share a moment of grief with the family.
Rohit Shetty, who is self admittedly a big fan of Shree devi arrived at the crematorium to see her favorite star for one last time as her death came as a surprise not only for the bizarre cause of it but also because she was a healthy person with no chronic illness that could have been fatal. She is survived by her 2 daughters Jhanvi, Khushi and husband Boney Kapoor. Shree was Boney’s second wife which makes Arjun Kapoor her step son and he has been vocal about not entirely appreciating his father’s decision of second marriage.
Arjun’s mother Mona Kapoor died a few months before the release of his first film Ishaaqzaade and could never see her son fulfilling his dream because of cancer. Shree devi is also dead a few moths before the release of Jhanvi Kapoor’s first film ‘Dhadak’ about which she seemed very exciting. Shree left her entire career at the peak of it because of her daughter’s birth and she did not want hectic work schedules to come in the way of her motherhood. Shree herself had a different childhood as she was pushed into films since the age of four and literally spent all her life in front of the movie camera with professionals on a film shoot.
