Boney Kapoor won’t rest until the film Sridevi Bungalow is aborted;
February 25, 2018 - India woke up to the tragic news of the sudden death of legendary actor,Sridevi.
Her death was a huge shock for the family and her fans. According to the post-mortem report, the actress died due to "accidental drowning" in a bathtub at a Dubai hotel. The movie Sridevi Bungalow starring Internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier and directed by Prasanth Mambully has Priya playing the character of Sridevi, and in the teaser, her character is seen lying dead in a bathtub. It has created a stir as it’s similar to how Sridevi died in real life.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, Boney Kapoor isn’t happy with the sleazy representation of his wife’s life.
A source close to the film-maker told the daily, “Boney won’t play into their hands and make any statement as these people (behind Sridevi Bungalow) are only looking at how to generate curiosity in their pathetic film. But he will take every legal step to prevent this sleazy film from being made.” Boney Kapoor has already sent a legal notice to the team. Mambully said that he has conveyed it to Boney that his film is a suspense thriller and his film’s character also happens to be an actress. According to the director, Sridevi is a very common name.
“For Boney, a sleazy representation of his wife’s life is unacceptable. He will not rest easy until this project is aborted,” a close friend told the daily.
Priya, in her statement, spoke in defense of the film and said, “Sridevi is just the name of my character in the movie. Who would want to create such controversies? I think the curiosity surrounding the trailer is good and we have to leave it to the audience to judge if the film is based on the veteran actress Sridevi ma’am.”
