Some of her family members returned from Dubai after the wedding, but Sridevi, her husband Boney Kapoor and her younger daughter Khushi stayed back. Her elder daughter -- Janhvi -- had not traveled with the family because of the shooting schedule for her upcoming Bollywood film, her first in the industry. 

A Star in Indian Film Industry

The actor had been a known face in South Indian films. She made her debut as a child artist in in Tamil film "Thunaivan" in 1969. She was 4 at that time. Sridevi made her Bollywood debut in 1978 with "Solva Sawan". But it was only after five years with Jeetendra-starrer "Himmatwala" that she gained commercial success.

She had two daughters -- Janhvi and Khushi -- with Kapoor.

Sridevi's mortal remains will be flown back to India from Dubai, her family said in a statement.  Sridevi's body could not be repatriated yesterday as the final investigation reports from Dubai Police were not ready last evening.  Reliance Communications (RCom) chairman Anil Ambani has reportedly offered to fly her remains back home in his private jet.
