It's been six years since the demise of actress Sridevi. She passed away on February 24, 2018 in Dubai.   Recently, the late actress' filmmaker husband Boney Kapoor opened up her death and answered claim of him being behind her death. In a recent interview, Kapoor opened up about the probe that followed Sridevi's demise. He said that her death was not natural but accidental. Sridevi was found dead in the bathtub of a hotel room in Dubai where they had gone to attend a wedding. She reportedly died from drowning. 

Talking to The New Indian about the accusations made against him regarding Sridevi's death, Boney said that he had decided not to speak about it as he had spoken about it for almost 24 to 48 hours during his interrogation and investigation by the Dubai police back in 2018. 

"That is how I got a clean chit from the Dubai police. In fact, the officers said we had to go through this because there was a lot of pressure from Indian media. Well, I said I have nothing more to say than what I have been saying. And they discovered there was no foul play. I went through all the tests, including lie detector tests and all those things. And then, of course, the report which came clearly stated it was accidental death by drowning," Kapoor shared. 

Boney Kapoor further spoke about Sridevi's health and her strict diet regime. He revealed that she would follow crash diets and was advised by their family physician to not undergo such strict diets. "She often used to starve; she wanted to look good,” he said. The filmmaker explained how one tends to look ‘broader and bigger’ in camera.

"She would make sure that she is chiselled and in good shape, so that on-screen, she looks good,” Boney said. He said Sridevi had come down to 46-47 kgs in past and cited examples of films like 'English Vinglish'. He also said that Sridevi used to avoid salt in her food. 

“From the time she was married to me, she had blackouts on a couple of occasions, and the doctor kept on saying she had a low BP issue, don't get into this severe diet where you avoid salt. It was unfortunate. Later when she passed away. Nagarjuna had come home to offer his condolences, and he told me that during one of her movies, she was again on a crash diet, and that’s how she fell in the bathroom and broke her teeth,” he added.

Kapoor further said that he came to know of Sridevi's eating habits only after their marriage and had urged the doctor to tell her to include salt in her food. "Unfortunately, she didn’t take this seriously, and he also thought maybe it can’t be this serious until the incident happened," he added.
