New Delhi: The first female superstar in Bollywood, Sridevi breathed her last on the unfateful night of February 24, 2018, in Dubai's Jumeirah Emirates Towers, leaving the entire nation in a state of shock. The actress was in the UAE for actor-nephew Mohit Marwah's wedding along with her producer husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi.

Sridevi's mortal remains would be kept at Celebrations Sports club in Mumbai between 9:30 am to 12:30 pm tomorrow, cremation will take place at Vile Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium after 3:30 pm, according to an ANI report.
