How Sridevi died facts revealed in new book?

Millions of Sridevi fans across the globe woke up in disbelief as the news of her untimely passing away greeted them on the morning of February 24th February 2018. The legendary actress was reportedly found dead in a luxury hotel bathtub in Dubai by her husband Boney Kapoor where she was staying while attending a family wedding. Various speculations started floating including murder but a new biography by Sathyarth Nayak on the timeless beauty titled 'Sridevi: The Eternal Goddess' may put them to rest.

According to Nayak, Sridevi had a long history of suffering from Low Blood Pressure known clinically as hypotension. Director Pankaj Parashar and South Superstar Nagarjuna had apparently shared with him that while acting in their project Sridevi had fainted in the bathrooms due to the illness. Boney Kapoor had also reportedly informed the author that his wife would faint while walking too. Tamil actress Maheshwari who is the niece of Sridevi too had vouched for the same.

Accordingly, the book concludes that on that fateful night Boney Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor had left for India while Sridevi had insisted on staying back in Dubai. Boney had then returned unannounced to surprise his wife but tragically was in for a shock to find her in the bath lifeless. The needless speculations surrounding the death of the beloved actress may die down now after the release of the book but the one thing that is certain is that Sridevi will live on forever in the minds of most film lovers.

Apart from her numerous Bollywood films the late Sridevi has acted as the leading lady in hundreds of Tamil films with the biggest stars of all time including Sivaji Ganesan, MGR, Gemini Ganesan, Jai Shankar, Sivakumar, Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. In later days she costarred with Thala Ajith in 'English Vinglish' Tamil version and in a prominent role opposite Thalapathy Vijay in 'Puli'. To honor her request Ajith starred in 'Nerkonda Paarvai' and the underproduction 'Valimai' for her husband Boney Kapoor's production house.
