Sridevi’s family accepts her National Film Award
It could have been one of the happiest moments of her life and the crowning achievement of a long and successful acting career, but, sadly, Sridevi cannot rejoice with her fans. On Thursday, May 3, she was posthumously given the award for Best Actress at India’s 65th National Film Awards. Sridevi was given the honour for her powerful role as a vengeful mother in the Hindi film “Mom.” Her daughters Janhvi and Khushi attended the ceremony with their father Boney Kapoor to receive the award on her behalf. Janhvi, the elder daughter of Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor, paid homage to her mother by wearing Sridevi’s favourite white and baby pink Kanjeevaram sari at the awards. This was the same sari Sridevi had worn at Tollywood superstar Ram Charan Teja’s wedding in 2012. Janhvi is set to follow further in her mother’s footsteps, gearing up for a Bollywood debut in the near future. During the ceremony, Indian President Ram Nath Kovind handed the award to the visibly emotional Kapoors. When Janhvi was asked about her mother's win, she told reporters: “I want to thank the jury and the government of India for recognising the hard work my mother has done. It is very special for us as a family.” Meanwhile, Boney said: “She would have been happy, very happy being here. We feel elated, proud that she’s been recognised for the hard work she put in this film.” Other celebrities who attended the awards included AR Rahman and Akshaye Khanna. “Such a proud and heart warming moment for all of us to watch these beautiful people accept an honour for the most incredible person there ever was!” Boney's brother and Bollywood superstar Anil Kapoor tweeted.
