As the puzzle around Sridevi’s sudden destruction a week ago proceeded with, her significant other and film maker Boney Kapoor has opened up – maybe out of the blue to a companion – about his unscheduled outing to see his better half in Dubai, how they embraced and kissed when he amazed her with his surprise visit and how he discovered her lying in a bath brimming with water without a drop of water spilling out.
Boney has described the “itemized record of what precisely happened on the game changing night of February 24” to his companion of 30 years, exchange examiner Komal Nahta, who has duplicated the discussion in a blog shared on his official Twitter page.
Nahta composed that Boney revealed to her that he pushed open the restroom entryway – which had not been bolted from inside – at around 8 pm subsequent to getting no reaction to uproarious calls for Sridevi and a thump on the entryway. Prior, there had been a great deal of hypothesis about the time that Boney had opened the lavatory entryway.
Nahta revealed to IANS that the discussion occurred on Wednesday before Sridevi’s burial service.
It was scarcely two hours after Boney shocked Sridevi – his “jaan” and mom of their two little girls Janhvi and Khushi – at Room No. 2201 at Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel here, that he confronted the stun of her passing, composes Nahta.
Nahta compared Boney’s “unscheduled excursion to Dubai” to one such trip the maker had arranged in Bangalore in 1994 to get Sridevi off guard.
Boney said: “On 24th (February 24) morning, I spoke to her. When she told me, ‘Papa (that’s how she addressed Boney), I’m missing you’, I also told her that I was missing her a lot. But I didn’t tell her that I would be joining her in Dubai in the evening. Janhvi had seconded my idea of going to Dubai because she was scared, her mom, not used to being alone, would misplace her passport or some important document if she was alone.”
As indicated by Boney, there had been just two events over the most recent 24 years when they had not voyage together abroad – when Sridevi had made a trip to New Jersey and Vancouver – for two film appearances.
“In spite of the fact that I didn’t go with her on those two excursions, I ensured that my companion’s significant other was with her on both the events. The Dubai stay was the first run through Sridevi was distant from everyone else for two days – 22nd and 23rd – in an outside land,” he said.
Boney, Sridevi and Khushi were in Dubai for a family wedding which wrapped up on February 20. While Boney came back to go to a “vital gathering” to go to in Lucknow on February 22, Sridevi proceeded with her stay in Dubai to shop for Janhvi and spent two days “relaxing in her hotel room”.
The producer told Nahta that he booked himself for a 3.30 p.m. flight to Dubai on February 24, and reached the hotel where his wife was staying at around 6.20 p.m. Dubai time.
After reaching the hotel where the couple hugged and kissed, and chatted for around 15 minutes, Boney freshened up and suggested they go on a “romantic dinner”.
Then Sridevi, who as he says, was in “relaxation mode”, went for a bath.
“I went to the living room while Sridevi went to the master bathroom to bathe and get ready,” Boney was quoted by Nahta as having said.
In the living room, Boney told Nahta that he surfed channels and was watching the South Africa-India cricket match for few minutes followed by the Pakistan Super League cricket match highlights. After around 15-20 minutes, he was restless as it was around 8 p.m. then and being a Saturday, he felt restaurants would fill up.
Nahta wrote: “Boney’s impatience made him shout out to Sridevi from the living room itself. After calling out to her twice, Boney lowered the volume of the TV set. Still no reply. He then walked to the bedroom and knocked at the bathroom door and even called out to her. The unsuspecting husband, hearing the tap inside on, then called out ‘Jaan, Jaan’ still louder but got no reply, which was unusual.
“He panicked and opened the door which had not been bolted from inside, nervous but yet not at all prepared for what he was going to see. The tub was full of water and Sridevi was immersed completely, from head to toe, inside the tub. Devastated, he reached out to her but watching her motionless, he feared the worst.
“Sridevi had drowned! Boney’s world had come crashing down.”
The much-loved actress’ sudden demise raised several questions.
But as Nahta puts it: “Whether she first drowned and then became unconscious, or she first fell asleep or unconscious and then drowned, nobody will, perhaps, ever know. But she probably never got a chance to even struggle for a minute because had she moved her arms and legs in panic while drowning, there would be some water spilling out of the tub. But there wasn’t a drop of water on the floor outside the tub area.
“The mystery will remain unsolved.”
