Sridevi's last moments with Boney Kapoor in Dubai
As reported by IANS, Sridevi was getting ready at for a dinner date with her producer-husband Boney Kapoor before she suffered a cardiac arrest. Apparently, Boney flew back from Mumbai and went to her room at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel at around 5:30 PM to 'surprise' her, a source close to the family told the Khaleej Times. He woke her up and the couple chatted for about 15 minutes before he invited her for dinner. When Sridevi did not come out of the washroom for long, Boney knocked on the door to check on her. When he got no response, he forced open the door to find the legendary actor lying motionless in the bathtub full of water, the source said.
