On the occasion of 65th National Film Awards ceremony, which was held at the Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi, Boney Kapoor along with Janhvi and Khushi came to receive Sridevi’s award.
In this ceremony, the awards were handed over by Information & Broadcasting Minister, Smriti Irani, Minister of State, Information & Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Secretary, Information & Broadcasting Narendra Kumar Sinha. President Ram Nath Kovind was supposed to give the awards but due to some reason, it was decided that he will not be giving away awards to all the 140 winners. Then in the absence of President Kovind, these ministers presented the awards to respective winners.
Sridevi won the Best Actress award posthumously, and Riddhi Sen won the Best Actor award. Sridevi also received the award for her last film MOM where she played a mother who is out to avenge the rape of her daughter.
Film producer and late actor Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor looked emotional as he came to receive his wife’s National Award for Best Actor (Female) with daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor.
