Sridevi wins Best Actress National Award posthumously

Bollywood actress Sridevi‘s sudden demise left her family, friends and fans in a shock. The Diva who had gone to attend a family wedding in Dubai died in February in a Dubai hotel. The power house performer who had made a smashing comeback with ‘English Vinglish‘ was much appreciated in her recent release ‘Mom’ too.

In the movie directed by Ravi Udyawar, Sridevi played a mother who sets out to avenge her step-daughter, essayed by Pakistani actress Sajal Ali. On Friday at the National Film Award 2018 the actress was named the Best Actress posthumously for her role as a vengeful mother in revenge drama.

In an earlier interview to IANS, Sridevi had said she was proud to be a part of a film like “Mom”, and the reactions it elicited.(Also Check: THIS actress to be the first recipient of an award in late Sridevi’s name

Sridevi was especially happy that the movie had made parents more conscious about sending their children to parties at farmhouses, and made several girls realise to be careful about the car they sit in to return home late at night.

“People reacted very well and I felt good about it,” she had said.

Now her daughter Jahnvi Kapoor is all set to take her legacy forward. The youngster is debuting in Karan Johar‘s Dhadak co-starring Ishaan Khattar.
