The Independent said that Kapoor and her husband, movie producer Boney Kapoor, had dinner together at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday (the night of her death) before she went in the bathroom to get ready for the rest of the night.

When she didn’t come out after 15 minutes, Kapoor’s husband knocked on the door to check on her, per Khaleej Times. When no response came, he forced open the door and found his wife lying motionless in a tub of water. “He tried to revive her, and when he could not, he called a friend of his. After that, he informed the police at 9 p.m.,” a source told the paper.
