To fulfil Sridevi's wish, her family decided to immerse part of her ashes in Ganga after performing a similar ritual in Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu, the source told IANS. In Haridwar, Boney Kapoor was accompanied by his bother Anil Kapoor and designer Manish Malhotra, who was Sridevi's close friend and preferred designer.

According to IANS, Boney Kapoor broke down during the puja when the Kapoor family priests, Shiv Kumar Paliwal and Manish Jaiswal, performed religious rituals at a VVIP ghat. Later, the family also visited Harihar temple at Kankhal. Apart from family and friends, Uttarakhand Agriculture Minister Subodh Uniyal and Haridwar Mayor Manoj Garg along with Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh were also present during the rituals.
