Nostalgia took over family, friends, and fans of Sridevi as she was named as the best actress (National Film Award) for her performance in Mom. The Kapoor family expressed themselves on the social media as the news spread. Sridevi’s husband and producer Boney Kapoor said that he isn’t sure whether to laugh or cry in this situation.
“I miss her so much. I wish she was here, this honour would have meant a lot to her. We don’t know if we should laugh with joy or cry in her memory. She would’ve been so happy today because even though she put a lot of effort into all her characters, Mom was a very special film for her,” Mumbai Mirror quoted Boney Kapoor.
Sridevi’s daughters Janhvi and Khushi along with their father shared a note on Twitter through Sridevi’s twitter account on 13 April. Here is the tweet.
