Sridevi died due to drowning in a bathtub at a Dubai Hotel late Saturday. However, her body was handed over to the Kapoor family only Tuesday evening after completing the formalities of post-mortem.

According to sources, ever since the news of Sridevi’s tragic death came to light, Boney Kapoor’s three daughters-- Janhvi , Khushi and Anshula-- have been staying together at uncle Anil Kapoor’s residence.

Arjun and Anshula’s mother and Boney Kapoor’s first wife Mona died in 2012.

Soon after the arrival of Sridevi’s mortal remains in Mumbai on late Tuesday evening, Bollywood stars Salman Khan, Satish Kaushik, and others have visited the family to pay their homage. Condolences and last respects to the actress will be paid at Celebrations Sports club in Lokhandwala between 9:30am to 12:30pm.

The cremation ceremony will take place at Vile Parle’s Seva Samaj Crematorium and Hindu Cemetery from 3:30pm onwards.
