Was Sridevi's death natural? A look at the Bollywood icon's last clicked photos

Published: February 25, 2018

A jagged piece of raw glass stabbing your insides repeatedly – that’s what the death of Bollywood icon Sridevi feels like.

From making us fall utterly and unapologetically in love with her oversized, ridiculously expressive eyes in Lamhe or making us laugh till our lungs gasped for air in Chaalbaaz – the girl who made us obsess over yellow dupattas by making them look ethereal in Chandni, Sridevi was a magnanimous force of beauty and soul – possessed with a vigour that was simply infectious.

Inimitable – that’s one word to describe her. She swept me off my feet with her comeback film English Vinglish. Unlike many other movie stars, this one made me feel. Her eyes spoke louder than words and her megawatt smile – that smile; that image is just embossed within.

Her boisterous persona and uninhibited performances made her ‘the it’ girl. She was a timeless beauty and as I sit here reminiscing all her songs that seem to be re-playing in my mind, a gloom envelops me in waves.

How could it be, I ask myself. Why couldn’t it be a hoax? The news of her sudden death raises so many questions. A star so fit, so energetic and so immersed in her work and family – how is she gone?

For some reason it’s just too unbelievable.  A cardiac arrest? As in, no one saw it coming. There was no medical issue, no life threatening disease, no accident. It just doesn’t appear to be a natural death. I don’t mean to refute science and medical professionals but just look at  her last clicked photos; some of which she uploaded herself on her Instagram…

She looked radiant a night before she passed away. No signs of a sick woman…

She looked like an earthy dream at the wedding ceremony:

And the saddest, most emotionally detrimental part is that the Mom beauty who was an exemplary mother, was promoting her daughter Jahnvi’s debut movie with a passion; Jahnvi is being launched into Bollywood by the prolific film-maker Karan Johar.

What hurts deeply is that the late star wasn’t able to witness the release of her kid’s debut film – something she was most excited about.

It just cuts me through and through. Gone way too soon. We didn’t have enough of her yet. I wanted more of her.

Words just slip away amid this inexplicable agony.

May the iconic ‘Chandni of hearts’ rest in peace.

    Why Pakistanis are obsessed with Bollywood. Indians are killing Pakistanis online of control every day. Keeping Pakistan under pressure for surgical strikes. Indian Tv channels are watched. Indian moves are shown in Pakistani movehalls. Pakistani artist love to work in India.
    Pakistani cricketers love to Play with Indians. There is no self-respect as Pakistanis. Please understand you are more superior to Indians and money is not everything. Please boycott Indian dramas and moves.Recommend

    From child actress to No.1 heroine to ‘English Vinglish’. Comic genius, very good actress, stylish & inspirational. It’s incredible that she did not become a lost soul like other child stars, that she acted in and was a success in multiple cinemas (South, North) and languages, that she lived life on her own terms, doing the best she could and remained relevant even in her 40s and 50s. She had so much more to offer, but she’s gone to soon. People are commenting about her ‘beauty regimen’ as if they knew her or her routine or the meds she was on or how many crash diets she had! It’s ridiculous and tasteless. Botox doesn’t kill, neither does a nose job nor skin whitening. She looked great. Look at any other heroine from 80s or 90s, Sridevi looked better because she had maintained herself. Is that a crime? Long term dieting does effect heart BUT unless someone knows her about her eating habits or has done her autopsy, kindly be graceful and be quiet.Recommend

    Needs to be investigated as the story given by Boney kapoor seems to be too hard to believe.Autopsy will reveal the cause.Recommend

    The story bring told does not look convincing. Heart attack is ok but drowning in the bath tub ?
    and what was Mr Kapur doing outside ? also that medical report real? Two spelling are wrong.Recommend
