Boney Kapoor accepts Sridevi's National Award, says it was unfortunate it came after her death
The late actor, Sridevi, was recognised with an award at the 65th National Film Awards in Delhi. Her husband, Boney Kapoor, said that while he was happy that she was finally honoured with a national award, it was unfortunate that it was after her death.
Sridevi won the Best Actress Award posthumously for her role in the Hindi film Mom, directed by Ravi Udyawar. In the movie, she had played the part of a mother who set out on a journey to ensure justice is given to her stepdaughter.
Anil Kapoor, brother of Boney Kapoor, tweeted about how proud he was to see Sridevi's family accept the award for her.
He wrote,"Such a proud and heartwarming moment for all of us to watch these beautiful people accept an honour for the most incredible person there ever was! Sridevi. National Film Awards, Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor."
Boney Kapoor also encouraged all aspiring actors to follow his late wife's example and be as focused and hardworking as her.
Sridevi worked in the film industry for almost 50 years and acted in almost 300 films. The last movie Sridevi will be seen in is Anand L Rai's Zero, where she appears in a cameo.
