The past 48 hours have been utterly exhausting and more than that, utterly bereaving. For those of us who grew up watching the diva sashay on our screens, the news of Sridevi‘s demise was no less than a cruel twist of fate. Add to that the various rumours and the fact that Dubai police had an investigation going on as they looked into all the aspects of her death, and we were too shocked. Finally, the actress’ mortal remains are coming back home.

In the wake of the same, the Kapoors, who till now were recuperating from the loss, have finally issued an official statement, which is as follows.

Khushi, Janhvi, Boney Kapoor and the entire Kapoor and Ayyappan families are deeply bereaved and shocked with the untimely loss of Sridevi Kapoor. Late Sridevi Kapoor passed away in Dubai, UAE, on Saturday February 24th.

We thank the film fraternity, media, fans of late Sridevi Kapoor and all the well-wishers for their prayers, support and sensitivity during our moment of immense grief. We request you to kindly join us in paying our last respect to a remarkable actor, beloved wife and loving mother.

We wish the family strength and courage, and our heart goes out to Janhvi and Khushi, who have lost their mother at such a young age. May the lady eternally make the heavens shine with that twinkle in her eyes and beauty in her smile. (Also Read: Those special 25 minutes that I spent with Sridevi)
