According to media reports, Sridevi was sleeping when Boney came and woke her up and asked her for dinner. The two chatted for about 15 minutes before Sridevi headed to the bathroom. When she did not come out after 15 minutes and did not respond to Boney, he broke down the bathroom door and found his wife lying in the bathtub, unconscious.

Boney tried to revive her but wasn't able to and called a friend over for help. The actress was rushed to the hospital soon after and pronounced dead at around 9 pm. While reports indicate that the actress suffered a cardiac arrest, there has been no official statement on the matter yet from either her family or the hospital in Dubai where she was taken. 

The actress's daughters, Janhvi and Khushi, are at Anil Kapoor's residence since Sunday morning where celebrities have been gathering to offer condolences to the Kapoor family.
