The nation’s Chandni, late actor Sridevi has posthumously won her first National Award in the category of Best Actress for her performance in the movie MOM. The Bollywood diva and fashion icon who died on February 24 in Dubai, was hailed as one of the most accomplished performers who could completely transform herself on the silver screen as per the demand of the role. In the movie MOM, she played a role of a mother who avenges the rape and murder of her daughter. It was the third movie that was released after her big comeback blockbuster English Vinglish. Not just on silver screen, Sridevi was also looked upon as one of the most celebrated stars on the red carpet.
As the announcements of the 65th National Film Awards came in, Twitterati got nostalgic as the late actor Sridevi won the national award in the best actress category. Sample some of the reactions here.

I watched Mom in theatre..had goosebumps throughout esp Sridevi breakdown scene. I felt she deserved all the main best actress awards for last year. VB in Sulu great but it wasn’t award winning great. IMO, Swara in Anarkali & Sridevi were the best female lead performances of 2017
