Mumbai: Fans of cinema across the country and even in other parts of the world have been in shock after hearing the news of veteran actress Sridevi’s passing in Dubai on Saturday.

Stories and mysteries surrounding the cause of death and the exact sequence have only heightened the grief that actress’ fans are grappling with.

 

After initial reports of Sridevi dying of a cardiac arrest in her hotel room in Dubai, later stories emerged that she was found dead in a bathtub full of water.

Bangladeshi author and social activist Taslima Nasreen sensed amiss about the reports and tweeted in the morning that she hoped it's was not a homicide or suicide.

Twitteratti didn’t take kindly to her views and slammed her for being a ‘negative thinker’, ‘trouble maker’ and asked her to stop spreading conspiracy theories and some even trolled her.

And as the cause of death went from cardiac arrest to ‘accidental drowning’ following a forensic report in the evening, Taslima seemed convinced about her earlier theory and wrote how it wasn’t possible for healthy adults to drown in bathtubs ‘accidentally.’

This time also she was slammed, but there were several who believed in her theory. Check out some of the reactions both for and against her tweet.
