24th Feb 2018, will always remain the black day for Bollywood for taking away the most loved Bollywood actress of Bollywood. The death was sudden and it has left the world shattered.
Although, there were alot of controversies surrounding the death of Sridevi but her mortal remains arrived last night in Mumbai after all the legal formalities were done. Today the condolence meet was held and a huge crowd of fans gathered outside the residence of the actress. The complete Bollywood industry was present at the ground to give their last visit to the actress.
For her last journey, the actress was dressed in her favorite red and golden colored Kanjivaram saree. Watching her like this is a very emotional sight for everyone.
The family of Sridevi including her husband Boney Kapoor and daughters Khushi Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor paid there last respect to the actress.
However, a question has been haunting in everyone’s mind as to why Sridevi was drapped in tricolor flag considering the fact that tricolor is usually drapped on the mortal remains of our soldiers.
And a lot of people were not happy because of the same reason as Sridevi was not a martyr. Here’s what people said:

Yes late sridevi was a very good actress but why was she wrapped in tricolor I think only Shaheed have the right to be wrapped on tricolor@sardanarohit what are your thoughts on this

Why is Sridevi body wrapped in Tricolor, violation of Flag code of India. This dilutes the value of state funeral which is reserved for state/Military/Central Paramilitary Forces funerals. #sridevi#sridevifuneral

I don't understand that why they wrapped Sridevi in TRICOLOR, that honour is for our realife heroes who sacrificed their lives for us.
She was only an actress. I dont want to hurt anyone, its my point of view. I respect her but she should not b wrapped in TRICOLOR. pic.twitter.com/3PU1pJ41de

Well there is a reason behind wrapping her in tricolor. For your information, the Kapoor family has not drapped her in tricolor because of their personal will.
Infact, the Maharashtrian government decided to give complete state of honors to the legendary actress.
In 2013, the legendary actress was honored with Padma Shri. It was the decision of state government itself to give a legendary farewell to the legendary actress.
Our heart goes out to the loved ones of the actress. May Sridevi’s soul rest in peace and god give strength to the family to overcome this tough phase.
