Sridevi has posthumously been conferred with the best actress award at the 65th edition of National Film Awards for her performance in Mom.
Sridevi, who made a comeback to the big screen after more than five years, was chosen for the most prestigious honour on Friday.
Back in 2017, fans and critics hailed Sridevi as the true queen of Bollywood and unanimously appreciated her performance in the revenge drama.
After being named for the honour, fans and her ex-colleagues from the B-Town took to their social media handles, remembering Sridevi.
