Screen legend Sridevi's sudden demise has been subject to multiple speculations. The actress passed away on the night of 24 February in Dubai due to accidental drowning. Now, Sridevi's uncle, Venugopal Reddy, has told a Telugu news channel that she was in a lot of pain due to financial instability. A DNA report claims that Reddy told the channel about the stress that Sridevi was under due to Boney Kapoor's financial trouble.

The producer reportedly lost a lot of money while funding films. To make up for the losses suffered and clear all debts, some of Sridevi's properties also had to be sold off. Due to this financial crisis, the actress, who had retired from acting after appearing in the 1997 film Judaai, was forced to return to the screen.

The same report quotes Reddy as saying, "Boney produced a film which never saw the light of the day, and they were financially going through a tough phase. Sridevi sold her properties and cleared those debts to get life back on track. And that was the main reason why Sridevi got back to acting in films."

He went on to say that although she looked hale and hearty, she was deeply disturbed due to this rough financial phase.

Sridevi was in Dubai to attend the wedding of actor Mohit Marwah. After the wedding, she moved to another hotel and was found in a bathtub full of water by her husband, Boney. The Dubai authorities subsequently ruled out foul play after a long investigation.
