The legendary actor passed away after accidentally drowning in a bathtub, which lead to ample debate and speculation at the time.
Hence, Kapoor has sent a legal notice to the team behind Sridevi Bungalow. Mambully himself confirmed this to an Indian news portal saying, “We have received a legal notice from Mr Boney Kapoor last week and we will face it. My film is a suspense thriller. I told him (Boney Kapoor) that Sridevi is a common name. My film’s character also happens to be an actress. We will face it (the legal case).”
Varrier, on the other hand, has refused to accept or deny whether her film is based on the real-life Bollywood veteran or not. When the news portal contacted her father Prakash with regards to the matter, he refused to comment on it, saying it was for the director and producers of Sridevi Bungalow to do so.
