The first official report assessing the circumstances of Sridevi's death have confirmed that the actress died of accidental drowning in the bathroom of her Dubai hotel - where she was staying with her husband Boney Kapoor.

Reported by a Dubai daily, the forensic reports have confirmed that the actress' cause of death wasn't cardiac arrest - as it was initially being stated, but "accidental drowning."

Sridevi was staying at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers with her husband, and was soon to venture out with for dinner before which she decided to freshen up.

As the actress didn't come out of the bathroom after more than 15 minutes and did not respond to him calling her name either, he somehow managed to make his way into the bathroom where he found her laying unconscious in the bathtub.

Boney Kapoor is then said to have called for assistance - but as it turns out - it was already too late.

It is possible she may have became unconscious under the influence of alcohol while in the bathtub, traces of which have been found in her body during the autopsy.

Sridevi, 54 is survived by her husband and two daughters.
