Don't know whether we should celebrate or not, says Boney Kapoor on Srideviâ€™s National Film Award!
Late legendary actress Sridevi was bestowed with the Best Actor award at the 65th National Film Awards which was pronounced by the Government of India on Friday. The actor was awarded this posthumously for her act in the film MOM, which was the last time we saw Sridevi shone on the big screens.
While the discussion over this is going on, the Kapoor family, Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor issued a joint statement expressing their gratitude to the jury.
As per statement:
We are overjoyed to know that the Jury has conferred the Best Actor Award to Sridevi for her performance in ‘MOM’. It’s a very special moment for all of us.
She was always a perfectionist and it showed in all the 300 plus films she did. She was not just a Super Actor but a Super Wife and a Super Mom.
It’s time to celebrate her life and her achievements. She is not with us today but her legacy will always live on.
We thank the Government of India, the Hon’ble Jury Members for this honor. We also take this opportunity to thank all our friends, her fans who have been sending us congratulatory messages.
Janhvi, Khushi & Boney Kapoor
Later, Boney was quoted telling by a tabloid that he doesn't know if the family should celebrate the news or not.
He revealed, "Today, we, as a family, do not know whether we should celebrate or not. We don't know if we should feel elated, laugh with joy, or cry while remembering her. The National Award has come posthumously, but it's something we cherish while remembering her for the artiste that she was. She was a perfectionist, and that was evident in all the 300-plus films she did. It's time to celebrate her achievements. Her legacy will always live on."
