Sri Devi, The legendary Female Superstar of the Indian Film Industry had an unfortunate death by accidental drowning in a bathtub. This raised many speculations among the media and the Public about her death. Some of them even doubted Boney Kapoor hand behind Sri Devi’s untimely death. Sri Devi’s Uncle Venugopal Reddy has given a few statements which are raising the suspicion on Boney a bit more. He revealed in an interview that Boney Kapoor brought a lot of debt on Sri Devi’s head by producing movies which didn’t go well in the industry and she cleared it off by Selling her own property.
“What we knew was Boney Kapoor lost a lot of money in few films and they sold Sridevi’s properties to make up for the losses. And Sridevi always had that pain in her heart. Sridevi lived in pain and passed away with a lot of pain in her heart. She was not at peace. She wore a smile on her face for the world but she went through a lot inside her,” said in an interview.
He even stated that Sri Devi’s comeback in the film industry was just to support the family financially to get their life back on the track. He said,
“Boney produced a film which never saw the light of the day, and they were financially going through a tough phase. Sridevi sold her properties and cleared those debts to get life back on track. And that was the main reason why Sridevi got back to acting in films,”
It was also rumored that Sri Devi has an insurance policy of 100crores over her name, and that is the reason behind her unfortunate death. Some even claim that she was killed by Boney Kapoor to get the insurance money and this is one of the reasons behind the delay for bringing her mortal remains back to the country.
