Sridevi, whose last rites were performed on Wednesday, lived her life with "dignity", her
family said in a statement, while requesting the media to give the family the space to
grieve her untimely death.
The Bollywood icon's husband, film producer Sridevi Boney Kapoor, also released a
statement on Wednesday saying the loss was "inexplicable in words". "To the world she
was their Chandni ...their Sridevi... but to me she was my love," the filmmaker wrote in a
post that he shared from his wife's Twitter handle.
On the lines of the statement released by the family, Kapoor also urged media to respect
the family's need to grieve privately.
Earlier on Wednesday, Sridevi was cremated in Vile Parle crematorium with full state
honours. Hundreds of thousands of people, including Bollywood celebrities, joined the
film star's family to bid adieu to the first lady superstar of India.

body was consigned to flames in the electric crematorium with husband Boney Kapoor
"The past few days have been trying times for us as a family. Today, particularly, has
been one of the hardest. We laid to rest a beautiful soul who has gone too soon," read the
statement by the Kapoors, Ayyappan and Marwah families.

passed away on Saturday following an accidental drowning in a bathtub in her hotel
