According to reports, Sridevi was in Dubai to attend a family wedding. Having ruled Bollywood in the 80s with films like Himmatwala (1983). Tohfa (1984), Mr. India (1987), Chandni (1989), Sadma (1983), Nagina (1986), ChaalBaaz (1989), she returned to the big screen with English Vinglish in 2012.
Sridevi had a lot more to offer to Bollywood, but fate had something else in store.
