Her mortal remains are expected to come today, post which the cremation will take place at Pawan Hans crematorium, Mumbai.

While condolence messages are flooding in, a few trolls on Twitter blamed Sridevi's plastic surgery as the cause of her death. So, Ekta Kapoor put a straight tweet shutting them up. She said, "Evil ones pls realise one percent ( as fwded as my doc told me) of the population can have a cardiac arrest without any heart condition or any kind of surgery! It's destiny not how evil rumour mongers portray!!!''

She also wrote: "The strongest women have the weakest hearts sometimes...#RIPSrideviji."

Celina Jaitley too tweeted: "If like me you are a @SrideviBKapoor fan STOP SPECULATING It is unfair to her & her family who are bereaved & mourning, use your tributes to help them who are in the darkest hours of their lives by not adding an unnecessary layer of stress & grief."

Meanwhile Sridevi's co-star in Chandni, Rishi Kapoor tweeted, "Henceforth no more Moonlit nights! Chandni gone forever. Alas!"

In another case, Rishi also slammed TV channels for addressing Sridevi as a mere 'body'. He wrote on Twitter slamming media and said, "How has Sridevi all of a sudden become the "body"? All television channels reporting "the body will be brought to Mumbai in the night!" Suddenly your individuality gets lost and becomes a mere body??".

Rishi was shocked after getting to know about Sridevi's untimely death. He wrote, "Woken up to this tragic news. Absolute shock. Sad. Heartfelt condolences to Boney and their two daughters! Henceforth no more Moonlit nights! Chandni gone forever. Alas!"

Shibani Dandekar too wrote on Twitter: "don't know what is more shocking the untimely demise of a legend who leaves behind an powerful legacy or the disrespectful dumb fuck trolls who don't even wait 24 hours to slander her good name! what a wonderful world we live in #RIPSridevi we love you"

Rishi Kapoor, along with Priyanka Chopra changed their Twitter profile picture and turned it black. Rishi Kapoor's bio read, "Sridevi. RIP." Deepika Padukone too put up a black picture on Instagram with a broken heart.
