Sridevi's body is not being embalmed today, it is likely to be done tomorrow, reports Khaleej Times.

Meanwhile, Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh said that Sridevi 'never drank hard liquor'.

"Sridevi ji did not drink hard liquor, she used to have wine sometimes like me and like many others in public life. I have talked to Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Al Nahyan, he assured me that all formalities and reports are complete. Her mortal remains should reach India by midnight," Singh told ANI.

Shocked celebrities and fans of Sridevi flocked to the residence of her brother-in-law Anil Kapoor, as they tried to come to grips with the sudden death of the versatile actor who had ruled over hearts and Bollywood for decades.

Mourners gathered at the Kapoor bungalow, where Sridevi and her husband Boney Kapoor's daughters, Khushi and Jhanvi, have been staying since yesterday.

Among those who visited the Kapoors to express their grief were filmmakers Farah Khan, Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani and others such as Resul  Pookutty, Saroj Khan and Honey Irani.

Shekhar Kapur, who directed Sridevi in the mega-hit, 'Mr India, was also present, as were actors Tabu, Ritesh Deshmukh, Genelia Deshmukh, Akshara, Shruti Haasan, Ameesha Patel, Divya Dutta and Sara Ali Khan.   -- PTI, ANI
