The Legendary actress Sridevi, died in Dubai due to drowning in her hotel bathtub in February. Everyone was shocked by this traumatic news and still her fans can’t believe that she is no more with us.
The late actor worked in 300 films in her career in various languages. She was remembered at the Academy Awards this year and was also honored with Best Actress Award at the National Film Awards.
Cannes is the biggest film festival across the globe, recently at the 71st Cannes, Sridevi received a special salute for her contribution in cinema at Titan Reginald F. Lewis Film Honours at the Festival. A special visual footage was screened in her honor in the presence of filmmakers from across the world at the prestigious film festival.
After Sri received the global recognition, Boney Kapoor told “I’m happy that people from the world are recognising her body of work and her contribution to cinema. Even though the overwhelming emptiness of losing her remains, it’s comforting to know that she lives on through her work.”
Subhash Ghai collected the award on behalf of her family, as Janhavi and Khushi were stuck with some work.
Previously, this year, Sri also got honoured with the biggest awards of the film industry, the Oscar Awards, in their “In memorian” segment, which took place at Dolby theatre, Los Angeles. They showed a video of her and Shashi Kapoor
Rishi Kapoor to his Twitter handle, “Oscars. Thank you for remembering Shashi Kapoor and Sridevi. Thrilled to see the name, we are on the threshold of world cinema!” he wrote.
Boney Kapoor is also planning to make a film or a documentary on Sridevi. He has also appealed for registration and registered several titles like Sri, Sridevi, Sridevi Ma’am. Boney in an interview told “I have registered three titles, but I cannot categorically reveal what they are. It’s too premature to talk about it. There are plans to make a film, but I can’t tell you whether it will be a biopic or documentary. I don’t see the need to rush into anything. Whenever there is any further development, everyone will come to know about it.”
As boney is flare in his scripting skill and the movie is all about her wife, then surely this movie will turn out be a great masterpiece. Besides Sridevi’s film journey, the film will include her personal life, her marriage to Boney, their kids and how she took a sabbatical- will also form an integral part of the narrative. Boney wants the movie to roll by next year.
