After late bollywood actor Sridevi received a National Award posthumously for her outstanding performance in her last movie Mom, husband Boney and daughters Khushi and Janhvi Kapoor expressed that her legacy would always live on.
Boney told PTI, “Thank you. I just wish she was here today to see this.” Boney, along with his daughters, released an official statement by saying, “We are overjoyed to know that the jury has conferred the best actor award to Sridevi for her performance in Mom. It’s a very special moment for all of us. She was always a perfectionist and it showed in all the 300 plus films she did. She was not just a super actor but a super wife and a super mom. It’s time to celebrate her life and her achievements. She is not with us today but her legacy will always live on.”
Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui, Sridevi’s co-star in Mom, told PTI, “I am not surprised, she deserved more. She deserves each and every award of the world. From a child actor till her last film. I am happy that she got a send off at the state level. But I am saddened that she got the award when she is not here today.”
Sridevi (54) died in a Dubai hotel due to accidental drowning in February this year.
