As the winners and their families of winners gather at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi to attend the ceremony of 65th National Film Awards, Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor and daughters Janhvi and Khushi are there to accept the honour on her behalf.
In an interview with DD News, Boney Kapoor expressed his feeling about the same. He said he missed her and was teary-eyed while he said so. He added, “It is a very proud moment at the same time… we miss her. She would have been very happy being here. Aur kya bolu? (What else do I say?)” He continues, “We just feel elated, proud that she is being recognised for the hard work she has put in this film.” He concludes by saying, “She got many awards but this tops the list.”
