Sridevi’s friends in UAE India and Pakistan mourn her death

The 54-year-old actress who was in the UAE last week to attend her relative Mohit Marwah’s wedding in Ras Al Khaimah died late on Saturday night.

According to industry sources, she was a private person who fiercely guarded her personal space and was under constant pressure to look perfect. If showbiz history is any indication, the pressure of being under constant scrutiny has often pushed celebrities to resort to extreme forms of lifestyle. While she has never openly admitted to undergoing cosmetic procedures, her physical changes have been well-documented over the years.

A few months ago, her enhanced lips that looked visibly plumped up occupied reams of space after her awkward body language at a public function showed her visibly embarrassed by her new lips.

The award-winning actress, who was a stellar performer on screen, has acted in over 300 Indian films spanning over five decades.

She is survived by her producer husband Boney Kapoor and daughters Jhanvi and Khushi.
