After the sudden demise of Bollywood’s iconic leading lady Sridevi, speculations around her death continued for almost a week. Putting a full stop to speculations around the death of the actress, husband Boney Kapoor talked about the last night he was with her. Boney Kapoor accounted the entire happenings of the night to Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahta.
Boney opened up about his unscheduled trip to Dubai to “surprise” her and how she showered him with kisses and warm embraces after they met. He also told Komal Nahta how he found her lying in the bathtub full of water with not even a drop spilling. In a detailed account of what transpired on the fateful night of February 24, Boney told the trade analyst that he pushed open the bathroom door at around 8 pm after Sridevi did not respond to the ‘loud calls’ and knock at the door.
Nahta penned the entire converstion in a blog and shared it on his Twitter handle. According to an IANS report, the conversation between the duo took place on Wednesday before Sridevi’s funeral. Nahta writes that barely two hours had passed after Boney “suprised” Sridevi in room No. 2201 at Jumeirah Emirates Tower Hotel that he faced one of the biggest shock of his life.

Nahata says that this was not the first time that Boney had gone out of his way to surprise his ‘jaan’ and likened his Dubai trip to a similar trip in 1994 when he had gone to Bangalore just to surprise her. According to Boney’s revelations, in the last 24 years, there had only been two occasions in which they haven’t travelled together, one was in New Jersey and other in Vancouver for two film appearances. ”The Dubai stay was the first time Sridevi was alone for two days — 22nd and 23rd — in a foreign land,” he said. While Boney returned from Dubai with daughter Khushi to attend an important meeting Sridevi continued to stay there for two days.
The producer told Nahta that after his meeting, Boney booked a 3:30pm flight to Dubai on February 24 and reached the hotel at 6:20pm. Following the surprise, they hugged and kissed and chatted for 15 minutes. Boney then decided to take her out on a ”romantic dinner”.
“I went to the living room while Sridevi went to the master bathroom to bathe and get ready,” Boney was quoted by Nahta as saying. 15-20 minutes had passed and Boney was restless as it was 8 pm and he thought restaurants would fill up.
Boney made incessant calls from the drawing room where he was surfing channels but Sridevi did not answer. Panicked, he opened the door only to find the worst had happened. Sridevi was immersed in the bathtub head to toe and was motionless. But Nahta ended the blog saying that this will perhaps be a mystery whether she drowned and then became unconscious or first fell asleep and then drowned. She didn’t even get a chance to struggle as there was no spilling of water. Sridevi’s death is perhaps a mystery which will remain unsolved.
