A chartered plane carrying mortal remains of actor Sridevi landed at the Mumbai airport on Tuesday night. Thereafter, the actor’s body was taken to her residence in Lokhandwala.

Police personnel and private security guards deployed at the residence had a tough time in controlling the crowds when the ambulance carrying Sridevi’s body drove into the house.

The family said in a statement that her body will be kept at Celebration Sports Club in Lokhandwala for people to pay their last respects before it is taken for cremation.

“On behalf of Khushi, Janhvi, Boney Kapoor, the entire Kapoor and Ayyappan families, a sincere thanks to the media for your continued sensitivity and support during this emotional moment,” the statement read.

The statement further said that well-wishers can pay their condolences from 9.30am to 12.30pm at Celebration Sports Club, Garden No 5, Lokhandwala Complex, Andheri West.

The family said media can also pay their respects “provided camera, recording devices, etc are left outside the venue”.

“The last journey will commence at 2pm from Celebration Sports Club to Vile Parle Seva Samaj Crematorium and Hindu Cemetery.” The cremation will take place at around 3.30pm.
