Sridevi Birth Anniversary: I&B Ministry hosts a two-day special screening of her iconic films
Honouring the legendary actress Sridevi on her 55th birth anniversary, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Government of India have decided to host a two-day screening of iconic films of the late actress.
Calling it as a tribute to the ‘Chandni’ actress and terming it as ‘Retrospective of Films of National Award Winner and Padma Shri Sridevi’, the I&B ministry will be showcasing her hit films like ‘Mom’ (2017), ‘Lamhe’ (1991), Mr India (1987), ‘English Vinglish‘ (2015), ‘Sadma’ (1983) and ‘Chandni’ (1989).
The screenings will be held on August 13 and 14, 2018.

Not only this, to pay tribute to the epitome of elegance, Bollywood Art Project is building an 18 feet tall mural of Sridevi on a building wall on Chapel Road, Bandra, Mumbai. A bunch of artists will be recreating Sridevi’s look from her hit film, ‘Gurudev’.

When PinkVilla contacted the actress’ husband and producer Boney Kapoor to know his feelings about the same, he said, “There are heroes and then there are legends, heroes get remembered but legends never die’ Sri lives with us every day.. not a minute goes by when we don’t miss her.. thank u for this honour.. Boney, Jahnvi & Khushi..”
To the uninitiated, the legendary actress was recently honoured with National Award for her powerful performance in ‘Mom’, which also happened to be the actress’ last film with a full-fledged role. Apart from being awarded by the Government Of India, Sri also received the IIFA 2018’s Best Actress Award for the same film.
