National Film Awards 2018: Boney Kapoor tears up after receiving Sridevi's award

Manish, who is Janhvi's and Sridevi's preferred designer, wrote, "The very pretty Janhvi Kapoor as she goes to receive Sridevi ma'am's much deserved National Award for her fabulous performance in MOM".

When Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor invited Arjun and Anshula to join them to receive the National Award for Sridevi's role in the movie "Mom" at Delhi, Arjun Kapoor refused.

Daughters have always been very close to Sridevi.

Zee Studios received dual honours at the 65th National Awards for its 2017 release Mom starring the late superstar Sridevi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Akshay Khanna among others. "We feel elated, proud that she's been recognised for the hard work she's put in in this film". Boney Kapoor, who made many films with her added, "She's worked her for nearly 50 years and done good 300 films and got many awards but this tops the list". This's the highest honour. "It is an emotional day for us", Khanna told PTI ahead of the ceremony, humbled to be receiving the award on his father's behalf. 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. Janhvi will soon be making her Bollywood debut with Dhadak opposite Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khattar. I can not even begin to imagine the pain of losing her mentor, best friend and mom all in one go. She is survived by two daughters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor.

She said in the message that people and the media should treat Sridevi's memory with love and respect, and talked about Sridevi's place in her life. So, the I&B "s decision of personally giving away only 11 awards by the President of India was not taken well by the rest of the awardees".
