Police in Dubai have closed the case into the death of Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor after handing over her body to relatives.
Police said the actress, 54, died on Saturday “due to accidental drowning following loss of consciousness”.
She was found in a hotel bathtub.
It had earlier been reported that she died of cardiac arrest while at a family wedding in Dubai.
Her body is now to be embalmed before being flown to India for her funeral.
Crowds have gathered outside Sridevi’s home in Mumbai to pay their last respects ahead of a cremation.
The star of such classics as Mr India, Chandni, ChaalBaaz and Sadma, Sridevi worked in the Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi languages.
Her acting career began at the age of four and by 13 she was cast in the adult role of a woman avenging her lover’s death.
Sridevi debuted as a lead actress in a Bollywood film in 1978, soon becoming one of India’s biggest film stars.
The actress decided to take a break from the film industry after the release of Judaai in 1997.
She made a comeback in 2012, starring in English Vinglish.
