Late actors Vinod Khanna and Sridevi were felicitated posthumously with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award and Best Actress honour by President Ram Nath Kovind at the 65th National Film Awards here on Thursday. Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor accompanied by his two daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor has accepted this award on her behalf.


This was really a proud moment for all family members. After the announcement of the award last month they have expressed their joy in a statement. “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 is the time to celebrate her life and her achievements. She is not with us today but her legacy will always live on.”
