A quick look at everything making news in the world of cinema today!
What’s making the news
Soon after the forensic reports arrived of actress Sridevi’s, the case was handed over to the Dubai Public Prosecutor and the police have recorded her husband Boney Kapoor’s statement in an effort to ascertain the exact circumstances that lead to her death. The investigators will also look into her call records. Uncertainty over when the body would arrive in Mumbai and the many questions surrounding her sudden demise still remain.
Meanwhile, social media is not amused with the way news organisations have been sensationalising the cause of her death. Full of speculations, ever since the forensic reports came, several channels have resorted to analysing and holding panel discussions over her death.
Dear TV channels here is our counter to your disgusting, misogynistic, insane,inane, undignified coverage of #sridevideath #NewsKiMaut. Let’s make it trend over all their hideous hashtags https://t.co/y9Y51PDigx

Filmmaker Kevin Smith, best known for Clerks and Chasing Amy, revealed he almost died of a “massive heart attack” after rushing to a hospital on Sunday night. The 47-year-old shared the news on Twitter from his hospital bed in California.
After the first show this evening, I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (aka “the Widow-Maker”). If I hadn’t canceled show 2 to go to the hospital, I would’ve died tonight. But for now, I’m still above ground! pic.twitter.com/M5gSnW9E5h
