Sridevi has been named best actress at the 65th National Film Awards, nearly two months after her death. Here’s the offical statement from Boney Kapoor and family:
“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.
We thank the Government of India, the Honourable 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 and Boney Kapoor”
