Several lakhs turned up to join a long procession — among the largest in recent times — to mark the final journey of actress Sridevi which started near her residence to a crematorium in Vile Parle on Wednesday afternoon.

A tall, open truck, fully decorated with white flowers — her favorite color — carried her body which was first draped in the national tricolor and then loaded in a glass casket, as cries of �Sridevi Amar Rahe’ rent the air among her fans.

Maharashtra government accorded full state honors for the funeral of Sridevi — who was conferred a Padma Shri in 2013, which included draping her body in the national tricolor, elaborate arrangements by the Mumbai Police and a gun salute before the cremation.
