India crowds say goodbye to Bollywood star

MUMBAI: Thousands of fans have gathered outside a cemetery in the Indian city of Mumbai as the last rites for Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor, who died in Dubai on Saturday, get under way, reports BBC. Earlier, fans clutching roses queued outside the Celebration Sports Club in the city to bid farewell to the star.The specially decorated truck carrying her body took hours to travel the 7km (4.3 miles) to the cemetery. The actress is being cremated with full state honours. Her body was flown back to India on Tuesday night. Sridevi, 54, died “due to accidental drowning following loss of consciousness”, police said. She was found in her hotel bathtub. Known simply as Sridevi, the actress was considered one of the very few Indian female superstars capable of huge box-office success without the support of a male hero. She appeared in nearly 300 films over five decades.

Film stars from Bollywood as well as the south Indian film industry were among the mourners at the sports club in the Andheri West area of Mumbai, home to Bollywood. “Since I heard the news about her death, I have been standing outside her home for two to three hours every day, waiting for one glance,” Bhagirathi, an aspiring actress, told BBC Marathi’s Abhijeet Kamble. She said she was inspired by Sridevi to try her luck in Bollywood.
