Veteran Bollywood actress Sridevi (the ever-gorgeous, charming and extremely talented actress) passed away due to accidental drowning in her hotel bathtub after losing consciousness in Dubai on February 24, 2018. Her sudden and untimely death, at the age of 54, has shaken up the nation. The actress was married to a film producer Boney Kapoor since 1996; Boney’s life and the lives of their children ‘will never be the same again’. While the family is still trying to come to terms with it, now Sridevi’s uncle Venugopal Reddy claims that Sridevi was in pain due to Boney Kapoor’s financial instability; it caused the star a great deal of pain throughout her life.
“What we knew was Boney Kapoor lost a lot of money in few films and they sold Sridevi’s properties to make up for the losses. And Sridevi always had that pain in her heart. Sridevi lived in pain and passed away with a lot of pain in her heart. She was not at peace. She wore a smile on her face for the world but she went through a lot inside her,” Venugopal Reddy told iDream News Channel.
“Boney produced a film which never saw the light of the day, and they were financially going through a tough phase. Sridevi sold her properties and cleared those debts to get life back on track. And that was the main reason why Sridevi got back to acting in films,” he added.
Sridevi’s sudden and untimely death has left us all shaken. The majority of the population is yet to come to terms with her death.
