Forensic doctors in Dubai revealed that there is nothing suspicious about the way Sridevi passed away, confirming that she died of a cardiac arrest, official sources in Dubai said. 

It was earlier reported that producer-husband Boney Kapoor found Sridevi lying unconscious in a bathtub on Saturday night. This, after she stayed back in Dubai post-Mohit Marwah's wedding so as to spend time with sister Srilatha. 

The actress was staying at the Emirates Tower where the incident took place. Boney who had flown back to Mumbai post the wedding decided to surprise his wife and on Saturday flew back to Dubai.

The sudden death of Sridevi has now sent Bollywood and fans in shock as they mourn her loss at Anil Kapoor's residence in Mumbai where Sridevi's two daughters Jahnvi and Khushi are staying at the moment. 

According to ANI news agency, an Indian Consulate official confirmed that veteran actress Sridevi`s mortal remains will be ready for repatriation between 1 pm to 2 pm (Dubai time) on Monday. Notably, the time difference between India and Dubai is 1 hour 30 minutes; hence the mortal remains will leave from Dubai by 3.30 pm Indian Standard Time. 

Sources in the Indian Consulate said that she was brought dead to the hospital.
