Deepika, Rekha, Vidya Balan bid goodbye to Sridevi

Last updated on: February 28, 2018 16:46 IST

Bollywood's last salute to Sridevi.

Almost *everyone* in Bollywood turned up to pay their last respects to Sridevi on Wednesday morning.

Her mortal remains were kept at the Celebrations Sports Club in Andheri, north west Mumbai -- a couple of buildings away from Green Acres, the apartment complex where Sridevi lived with her husband and two daughters.

Sridevi's body was brought to the venue at 9 am by her family.

Inside the hall, her family -- brothers-in-law Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor, nephew Harshvardhan Kapoor and nieces Sonam and Rhea Kapoor -- stood in a corner, their eyes wet with tears.

Sridevi's daughters Jahnvi and Khushi were standing a little behind them.

A sombre, red-eyed, Boney Kapoor stood in a corner surrounded by his family and friends from the film fraternity.

The actor's mortal remains were draped in a red kanjeevaram sari, with a bindi on her forehead.

The hall had three entry points -- for VIPs, the media and the public. While the gates for the public opened after 10 am, fans from across the country had started queuing up to pay their last respects since 6 am.
