Earlier, other celebrities like actor Ajith, filmmaker Priyadarshan and actress Meena visited the residence of Sridevi in Chennai to pay their tributes. In February, Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and his wife Latha Rajinikanth had also visited Anil Kapoor's residence in Mumbai to be Sridevi's family after her death.
On February 24, Sridevi accidentally drowned in a hotel bathtub in Dubai, where she was attending the wedding festivities of nephew Mohit Marwah. After three days, Sridevi was flown back to Mumbai and a condolence meet and funeral were organised by the Kapoors on February 28.
Sridevi, whose is best known for films like Chandni, Mr India and Nagina, took a sabbatical from the big screen after she married Boney Kapoor in 1996. She made a comeback with English Vinglish in 2012 and Tamil fantasy drama Puli remains one of her last movies. MOM was her last film that released and she has also shot for Shah Rukh Khan's Zero, which releases later this year.
