It’s been a while since the demise of actress Sridevi‘s untimely death. But being an inspiration she was and will always remain for everyone, recently an award has been constituted in her name. Zee Telugu is hosting the third edition of its Apsara Awards 2018 that aims to celebrate women achievers who have contributed immensely to the society.

And it’s none other than actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who will be the first person to be felicitated with this honour in Sridevi’s name, at the ceremony. The actress will be honoured for her contribution to cinema and as a deserving woman achiever.

Feeling proud over receiving this honour, the actress has said,

“Sridevi was someone I looked upto during my formative years in the industry. It is such a privilege to be presented an award named after her. I started out really young in the industry just like her and I understand that it takes decades to build a legacy.”

 

Interestingly, Tamannaah had made her big Bollywood debut with ‘Himmatwala’ (2013) which was a remake which originally starred late Sridevi playing the lead role.
