Akshaye Khanna co-starred with Sridevi in MOM, which was her last film.

Some, like Vidya, also attended the cremation. The last rites were also attended by Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and some other stars who were not at the morning's memorial. Sridevi, dressed in bridal red and wrapped in the flag, was given a funeral with state honours. Sridevi, 54, accidentally drowned in a Dubai hotel bathtub last Saturday. The Kapoors had been attending their nephew Mohit Marwah's wedding in Dubai last week.

Sridevi's sudden death left the film industry reeling in shock. Her former co-stars Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Venkatesh, Jaya Prada, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher visited the actress' brother-in-law Anil Kapoor's home over the last few days to pay their respects. Other visitors included Rekha, Madhuri Dixit, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi, Rani Mukerji, Tabu and Karisma Kapoor.

The delay in bringing Sridevi back means that some colleagues missed the funeral because of work commitments. Rajinikanth, who arrived in Mumbai on Monday, flew back to Chennai yesterday - the teaser for his new film is expected to release tomorrow. Deepika Padukone was also spotted at the airport with her Kochadaiiyaan co-star but she returned to Mumbai on Wednesday morning. 

Sridevi, considered India's first female superstar, made 300 films in several languages over 50 years. She was just 4 when she started out and played her first leading role at the age of 13 in 1976 film Moondru Mudichu, opposite Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. Her illustrious career includes memorable Hindi films such as Sadma, Mr India, Chaal Baaz and Chandni.

Sridevi received the Padma Shri in 2013, a year after she returned to the screen in English Vinglish. She had begun acting again after a break of many years to raise her daughters Janhvi and Khushi. Sridevi was last seen in MOM and filmed a special appearance for Shah Rukh Khan's Zero, releasing in December, before she died.
