Shah Rukh, Amitabh, Katrina at Sridevi's funeral

Last updated on: February 28, 2018 20:37 IST

Her funeral was the biggest Mumbai had seen for a Bollywood star since Rajesh Khanna's funeral in 2012.
Boney Kapoor performed the last rites with his daughters Janhvi and Khushi by his side.

Sridevi was cremated with State honours at the Seva Samaj Crematorium, Vile Parle, north west Mumbai.

Her husband film-maker Boney Kapoor performed the last rites. The couple's daughters, Jahnvi and Khushi, were by his side, said sources close to the family.

Fans and the media were kept outside as the mortal remains of the star were consigned to the flames.

Few could hold back their tears as the ceremonial gun shots rang out and the pyre was lit.

The actress' body was brought to the crematorium in an open, flower-bedecked, hearse.

The journey took one hour and 40 minutes as crowds thronged the cortege for a last look.
