Recently, her husband Boney Kapoor was spotted immersing a part of the ashes of Bollywood actress in the holy Ganges in Haridwar in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday. After immersing a part of the ashes in Rameshwaram, Boney Kapoor went to Haridwar.

Sources close to the family said the late actor had stopped at Haridwar during a film shoot in 1993 and had promised to return. It was to fulfill this wish of Sridevi that the family decided to immerse her ashes in the holy Ganga after performing a similar ritual at Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu. Boney Kapoor was accompanied by family friend and Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh, younger brother Anil Kapoor and other family members.
