Call it fait accompli or a bizarre twist of morbid fate, but there’s something in common between Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s first wife, Mona.

Both these women died before they could witness their children’ debut on the Bollywood stage with a splashy Hindi film.

Kapoor’s second wife, Sridevi, who reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest in Dubai on Saturday night, was eagerly awaiting the debut of her daughter, Jahnvi Kapoor in the romantic drama, Dhadak, in July along with Ishaan Khatter.

The doting mother was legendary for being a hands-on mother and took a keen interest in sculpting her daughter’s career.

Jahnvi missed out on spending the last days with her mother at their relative’s wedding in Ras Al Khaimah as she was  filming for the much-anticipated movie.

Kapoor’s ex-wife Mona missed her son Arjun Kapoor’s debut Ishaqzaade by two months when she died after her battle with cancer in 2012.
