Jhanvi along with sister, Khushi, and father Boney all arrived to be a part of the mock session of the main event that will be held soon. The family looked emotional and somber, the trio even released a statement to the public thanking the jury for the honor. The lovely Jhanvi Kapoor wore her mother’s sari to pick up the National Award the late Sridevi received for her thriller “Mom.”
“Today, we, as a family, do not know whether we should celebrate or not,” Boney told Mid-Day. “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.”
