The film fraternity turned out in strength too to say their farewells.
After her visit, Hema Malini tweeted, "Paid my last respects to Sridevi. The entire industry was there grieving, some on the verge of breakdown. Such was her aura & magic in films. She lay there, beautiful in a red saree, serene in death & totally at peace".
Actors Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sushmita Sen, Madhuri Dixit, Kajol, Sridevi's niece Sonam Kapoor, Tabu and others attended the morning's condolence meet.
Sridevi died on Saturday evening at a hotel in Dubai, where she had gone with her husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi to attend a family wedding. Her death, initially thought to be a cardiac arrest, was caused by "accidental drowning", the Dubai police said after an investigation. Her body was flown into Mumbai last evening on a private aircraft after the formalities were completed.
Over the last few days, her former co-stars Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Venkatesh, Jaya Prada, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher had visited the home of Anil Kapoor - Sridevi's brother-in-law and former co-star -- to pay their respects. Other visitors included Rekha, Madhuri Dixit, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi, Rani Mukerji, Tabu and Karisma Kapoor.
