The 65th National Film Awards felicitated the late legend Sridevi today for her work in what unfortunately turned out to be her last outing, Mom. One would have hardly ever thought that someone who was just gearing up for her second innings in B-Town would leave us all in the most unexpected of ways.
In response, the utterly grateful family of the evergreen diva has issued a statement which you can find below:
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.
Its time to celebrate her life and her achievements. She is not with us today but her legacy will always live on.
We thank the Government of India, the Hon’ble Jury Members for this honor. We also take this opportunity to thank all our friends, her fans who have been sending us congratulatory messages.
Janhvi, Khushi & Boney Kapoor
