New Delhi [India], Feb. 27 (ANI): Bollywood actor and late actress Sridevi's stepson, Arjun Kapoor, has arrived in Dubai on Tuesday morning.

The 32-year-old actor has gone to Dubai as a moral support to his father, Boney Kapoor, a source told the Gulf News.

Meanwhile, Dubai prosecutors haven't issued an approval allowing the bereaved family to collect the actress' mortal remains, hinting at a further delay in repatriation. Further law enforcement is still said to be pending, as quoted by the Gulf News.

Sridevi passed away on late Saturday night in Dubai, where she was attending a family wedding.

According to the forensic report, the 54-year-old Indian actress died of accidental drowning in her hotel room's bathtub, after suffering a dizzying spell.

Traces of alcohol were also found in the actor's body.

Dubai Police has transferred the case to Dubai Public Prosecution, which will carry out regular legal procedures followed in such cases.

Meanwhile, celebrities and fans have been visiting the Mumbai residence of Anil Kapoor, brother-in-law to the actress, awaiting the arrival of her mortal remains. (ANI)
