In 2018, the world bid farewell to the iconic actress Sridevi, who had captured the hearts of Tollywood audiences for decades. Her sudden demise sent shockwaves through the industry and sparked intense speculation about the circumstances surrounding her death. Sridevi's husband, the renowned producer Boney Kapoor, had chosen to maintain a silence in the years following her demise. However, he recently broke his silence to shed light on the tragic incident that took his beloved wife away from him.
For the unversed, Sridevi lost her life in her Presidential Suite at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai, where she accidentally drowned in the bathtub.
Boney Kapoor in a recent interview to national media has revealed why he remained silent for so long and described his experiences during the investigations, including lie detector tests. He also disclosed that Sridevi followed extremely strict diets that excluded salt, leading to occasional blackouts. He even recounted a similar incident involving Nagarjuna, where Sridevi fell in the bathroom and broke her teeth.
Speaking to Indian Express, the renowned producer stated, "It was not a natural death; it was an accidental death. I had chosen not to speak about it because I had already discussed it extensively during the initial investigations, which lasted for nearly 24 to 48 hours. The authorities felt compelled to conduct these investigations due to significant pressure from the Indian media. However, they ultimately concluded that there was no foul play involved. I underwent various tests, including lie detector tests, and the official report clearly indicated that it was an accidental incident."
At the time of her passing, Sridevi continued to adhere to a strict diet regimen. Boney Kapoor explained, "She often went without food in her pursuit of maintaining a certain appearance for the screen. Even after our marriage, she experienced blackouts on a few occasions, and the doctor had consistently advised her about her low blood pressure issue."
Boney Kapoor further mentioned that he was aware of Sridevi's dietary restrictions and had repeatedly urged their doctor to recommend adding salt to her diet. Unfortunately, she didn't take this advice seriously, and neither did he realize the gravity of the situation until the tragic incident occurred.
