Here's what you should do:

1. Turn it off immediately. If possible, remove the battery pack.
2. Wipe off excess water and dirt with a clean and absorbent cloth.
3. Don't use fan, blower or the like to dry it. You'll push the water further into its circuitry. It will appear dry on the outside but it will wet the circuitry inside. You should prevent water from seeping into the circuitry.
4. Wrap it with a clean and fine cloth then place it in a rice dispenser, or just put it in a container and put rice grains on it. Rice grains act as dessicant, absorbing water out of your phone. Leave it for one week. That is a cheap solution, but if you have a silica gel granules, that would be much better.
5. When you're sure that the phone is completely dry, turn it on. If it still doesn't turn on, take it to the service center
Don't lie about the device, they'll know if you got it soaked.

I hope this helps you recover your phone. :)

Dismantle everything and dry it with the hairdryer, do not use heat. If it won't work, then take it to the shop for repairing

Thanks @SetupComputer I have watched a movie wherein a soaked phone is left in a rice bowl. And it was recovered.
Ill definitely try that. I have removed the battery after getting it from the tub.
