Almost everyone was disheartened and shocked because of her death. None of us ever imagined that she will leave the world so soon. After her death, many shocking things were revealed. Where her neighbors said that she never used to talk with them, now her uncle Venugopal Reddy revealed a few unknown things about her life.
He said that Sridevi was living a miserable life with Boney Kapoor and she was not happy at all. He further added that Boney’s mother never liked Sridevi and she was not happy with their marriage. Her uncle said,
“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. 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.”
Venugopal also revealed that the actress went under the knife to enhance her features. He said,
“Yes. she did get a couple of surgeries done on her nose. She traveled to the US and got the surgeries done on her nose since she wanted it to look good. We got to know this when we casually ask about her well-being while speaking to her mother over the phone.”
“When her mother was operated in the US, the doctors performed the surgery on the wrong side of her brain because of which she was totally bedridden. She was alive but not in her senses. She had become just an object. After the family got to know about the surgery, they filed a case against the hospital and Boney Kapoor was along with Sridevi during this process. And court penalized the hospital, and sisters, Sridevi and Srilatha, had few differences in the allocation of that amount which was later cleared by the family members. And besides a share in this compensation, Sridevi used to send a lot of money to her sister Srilatha and they were fine.”
Talking about her relationship with step-son Arjun Kapoor he said:
“Sridevi did mention to few of her relatives that she did face few challenges with Arjun Kapoor, but I’m not too sure about it. When few of our relatives paid a visit to Sridevi, during their conversation she did mention that she was worried about daughters Janhvi and Khushi, about their future. Sridevi also mentioned that Boney wasn’t well and his health was a bit worrying.”
