According to Reddy, the late actress was down with fever when she attended her nephew’s wedding. "I spoke to her the day she was leaving for Dubai. She was down with fever and was on antibiotics. She was feeling tired, but she said that she has to go for the wedding."
She added, “I have seen her professional rise. (Sridevi’s death) is shocking. We are devastated."
Sridevi’s close friend also recalls the time she met the late actress. “She had specially flown down to Hyderabad for two hours to attend my daughter's baby shower. Can you imagine that? That was the last time I saw her.”

Pinky is deeply hurt that social media users are constantly referring to Sridevi’s cosmetic surgeries. “It hurts me that people are making her death into such a joke. People are saying that she underwent liposuction and took fat burners. Why can't people remember the good things about her instead of talking about all this? After she has gone, how can they even utter such mean and vile things?”
The ladies were friends from the tender age of 8. In fact, Pinky’s father was also one of the producers for Sridevi’s hugely popular film Chandni.
Sridevi died by drowning in the bathtub of the hotel she was staying in Dubai, the final postmortem report stated.
