Sridevi passed away at the age of 54 on February 24, 2018, after a case of accidental drowning in Dubai. She was there to attend the wedding ceremony of Boney's nephew Mohit Marwah. Her mortal remains were flown back to India and on February 28, she had a state funeral.

In May 2018, she was posthumously awarded the National Films award for best actress for her role in the film Mom.

Moreover, her statue was installed at the Madame Tussauds Museum in Singapore earlier this year as a tribute to her contribution in the field of cinema. The statue is a 3D depiction of her role as Hawa Hawai in Shekhar Kapur's film Mr India, which was released in the year 1987.
