When it was announced that Sridevi would be given the National Award posthumously for her role in the movie Mom, it was a bittersweet moment for the Kapoor family including Boney Kapoor and his two young daughters, Khushi and Janhvi Kapoor. At the time, they had released an official statement, saying, “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.”
