Husband Boney, and daughters Janhvi and Khusi were overjoyed that Sridevi was honoured with the award but also wished that she was here to receive it. Boney told PTI, “Thank you. I just wish she was here today to see this.”
Sridevi’s young daughters thanked the government of India, jury members and fans for celebrating her achievements- “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.”
Mom was Sridevi’s 300th film. The actress recently celebrated her 50 years in cinema. She died at the age of 54 due to accidental drowning.
Her Mom co-star, Pakistani actor Adnan Siddiqui, 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.”
